This morning, we had 5% progress. Today, as I am about to fly back home, progress is.... 95% !!!!!!


THANK YOU all for your kind words and good vibes, they did work!

Now, just a matter of fine tuning some details so we can officially start this baby!!!!!!!!!

It has been a LONG day, but worth every minute!!!!!!

I hope the final parts all fall into place nicely for you G.
It couldn't happen to a nicer bloke, the man responsible for me spending most of my afternoons starving to death in work having looked at one of your BBQ posts.

I don't mean to be an A-hole and congratulations are inline (i think?), but I don't really understand these types of posts.

I just clicked through 3 pages of anticipated excitement, and we don't know what the excitement is really about? Also, it could all be premature since you're 95% there and not willing to tell us, but you are willing to show all of these photos and everything else?

Again, not trying to start anything and I'm truly happy for your happiness - but I just don't understand posts like this...
