    Donkey is not too fussed about "heavy" going such as you have experienced in Victoria. He prefers "firm" going. You could say up here he is a bit of a hot shot especially if the jockey lights him up.

    I agree with regards to a prize, but I'm not sure you will fit a door in even a large satchel.

    Well my package made it to Brisbane on the 13th, then went back to Sydney on the 14th, no more updates since then, but they say the expected delivery is tomorrow. I doubt this, because it will have to get scanned at the Mackay sorting centre the day before I get it, and this would update on the tracking info. Hopefully I do get it sometime this week.

    My impression is that some strange things happen at the Brisbane sorting office. Recently I sent a package to Melbourne, but from Brisbane it went to Darwin first!

    Last year I bought a drill chuck online from a business in Dandenong. Postage to Hoppers Crossing (just the other side of the Westgate Bridge) took 10 days. Yes, you guessed it - via Brisbane.

    Once I finally had the chuck and confirmed the quality was satisfactory, I ordered another two. They also went via Brisbane and took 10 days.

    That was about an extra 4000km on a 40 km trip.

    Ironwoods,

    Saws have been lost in transit [emoji35][emoji35][emoji35][emoji35][emoji35]
    Heading to the Post office to see what I can find out.


    Your delivery
    Estimated delivery was Tuesday 19 November*
    DELAYED
    Still waiting? Over 90% of late items arrive within 3 business days of their due date.

    This was the message I received from putting in the tracking number.

    Cheers Matt

    Not sure how far the PO is from you Matt, but don’t make a special trip, I am sure it will find it’s way here eventually .
    Though it is confusing why it was scanned at Brisbane on the 13th, then went back to Sydney on the 14th and have been delayed there since then. Maybe they are sharpening them for me
