Re: When Seniors Downsize.

Thanks Spider, good suggestions. I am thinking about getting a little garden/yak trailer made to house maybe boat rollers. Hadn’t thought of a winch👍 It’s all the other incidentals that are hard like when it needs lifting to put away or get back up a small seawall or just plug in the cart. Still aft...

Re: When Seniors Downsize.

Thanks Maverick, I have thought long and hard. The revo is a tad lighter and more zippy but I really like the stability of the sport but also it has flat surfaces along the side like the Outback where I put my scissors and bait.

When Seniors need to down size it usually means their house and I suppose I’m no different having recently exchanged my country acres for a house by the sea down the Bellarine Peninsula way. But downsizes go surprisingly further than just the house. Not only was the house too big but so is my Hobie ...

Re: Thinking Back

Hey I even remember cat gut fishing line when I was very little. I think you had to soak it in water before you used it otherwise it was brittle and would break.

Re: Thinking Back

I love hearing about life before technology and how things were done. I had older parents from older parents so I got a looksee into the old ways my family hung on too. They grew veggies, kept ferrets for rabbits, killed a chook once a month. Mum used to feed us Tongue, brains & all the offal cu...
