  1. uggh, that was grim. 14kms, 1:18 at 5.33 pace, 127 vert. surprised at the pace because it felt like i was going backwards mostly!
  2. I've got a Focus Paralane carbon that I keep at my Mum's house for a spare bike. Definitely not a crit bike, unless you like seeing the pack from the back 🤣
  3. When we were staying at the Canberra for the HIM one year. (the hotel near the casino, Hyatt?) it was full of triathletes. I had a horrible night, was really sick and we planned on checking out, grabbing my bike from transition to head home. Went to check out, feeling like death and the receptionist said I just needed to pay for the 4 vodkas charged to my room! WTF? I launched some spiel about being an elite athlete, all the time looking like I was having a hangover from hell😅 He sorted it out, nothing to pay. Gimli was there that year, we were meant to have a smackdown. I blame
  4. Yeah it sounds strange. $94 is annoying but TBH, you may have dodged a bullet with the dog and claimed 'damage'. Doesn't sound like she needs much excuse.
  5. Interesting profile for her. She has brand new VW T6 camper custom made and as far as i can see, free. That's not chump change but i wonder the coach builder gets out of it?
  6. What does her Trip Advisor say, bad reviews? She does sound a bit unhinged or she's looked at how much she's lost in revenue and trying to make it up by jacking up prices after the fact. Either way, not cool!
  7. The way I'm reading that, she isn't charging you a cancellation fee, as that would state something like 'x%' of the total payable as a cancellation fee (or some BS admin fee). That is not a cancellation fee. What she is charging you is a non refundable cc transaction fee at her end. Your question should be whether she was in her rights to charge your card at all. Even if she was, given she was the one that cancelled on you, I would have thought she'd take that hit to avoid a bunfight. So I agree, you're being screwed but not over a cancellation fee. TBH, I'm surprised anyone
  8. 6km run with Little One, 40.50. Club ride on Zwift, Petit Boucle. 77kms, 2hr18, 530 mtrs, 206 av watts

    I've read that before and I think it bullshit. It's trope trotted out by a disgruntled EU. Like I say, I'm pretty close. (couldn't be any closer!) to some of the data. I've not seen any response that says that a person would not take whichever one is available first.

    That's a very kind thought Peter, thanks. TBH, we've discussed it but right now, sticking with our relatively safe immediate environment of jobs, WFH, flexible hours and a house that's nearly paid for, is less of a risk that coming back to Oz and starting again. The other scary thing is that Rimmer said he was recently quoted $17,000 for an economy ticket to Oz from Switzerland! (IIRC?)

    The job I'm in now and the team I manage is a bit too close to it all really but we are where we are but we are where are, as they they say.

    I'm amazed they are having it all TBH.
