    Default A long long long way off...

    But Cindy has let me book something for next year.
    Heading up to Dhipirri early May.
    Good crew going up, same blokes I've been away with a few times. But it's one place I have told them for years I wouldn't go because of (IMO excessive) cost. But they've been nagging (most of them go up every year or two) and I caved due to being locked up with babies for too long.
    But most surprisingly Cindy ok'ed it. Haha.
    Will be interesting to see what I think of the value, I guess.

    I'm not jealous. Honestly, I'm really, really, really not jealous. Not one little bit.

    Nice one Ducky, good score

    Niiice. You must have racked up quite a few brownie points. Or maybe will be expected to.

    I think the truth of it is I'm a much easier person to live with when I either a) have a fishing trip to look forward to, or b) have recently been on a fishing trip.

    great stuff ducks, thats a trip to really look forward too. i too have balked at those trips because of the excessive price tag they put on them and have been in the very lucky postition to have been right around aussie visiting a lot of very similar areas like those ,and living in hervey bay where the diversity of fishing is unreal..im sure youll love it no matter what, fishin, spending time and drinkin with the mates doesnt get much better than that .
    the world is a lot better place if you just smile

    I think it's balancing what you see as value.
    Dollars vs fishing time vs fishing quality. But also inclusions.
    It's small things like charging extra for drink, leaving transfer costs and organising separate, that grate me a bit when looking at value "locally".
    My opinion on value is obviously coloured by having been fortunate enough to fish overseas when the Aussie dollar was kicking arse.

    But now the cost is also offset by the number of brownie points I need for extra days to travel. Need to keep those few extra days of annual leave for family time.
