What I'm now disappointed about is having to wait three months for the next instalment of Kat's journey! I've found it an inspiring read, and always look forward to seeing it.

Gives us something to look forward to during the dark winter months - the further adventures of Katamarino's trip, nights drawing out and the first twitches of Spring!

Hardly of use as the term now in use is GAFA, The 'Great Australian not very much.'


Other Nevil Shute fans may recall a title with another phrase

You have some some long sectors over the Pacific, please don't mess about getting it fixed, ship out a new/overhauled engine and replace it then worry about the current engine later.


I'm having it overhauled by a well known shop in Australia, and will fly 100+ hours on the new engine before setting out. They're starting the tear-down now. I'm very keen not to get any use out of my liferaft!
