Summed up donations, usd 1925.- were transfered to M today, will surely be put to good use, rebuilding a life.

Well done everybody!

I am worried that Musky may not be the only one affected by the fires. Where is duTch?

It feels great to help someone who has helped so many of us.

Do any of you know of a way to find out if duTch has been affected by the fires? Maybe you have friends in common?

G'day fellas.
WOW, it feels so good to be part of such a generous group. I an eternally greatfull for your support.
I had no idea of the amount raised and was flabbergasted to see it in my account. This covered the bond/security on the rental that had to come out of my personal funds ($2400AU). At the end of the day I should have it refunded and then used to purchase special BSA tools etc.
I have received a few $K from disaster relief and the Red Cross to get essentials. Food and clothing donations have also been received.
Looking on the bright side. The fire has saved us about $6000 in removalist costs when we move up to Lithgow. All we've got will fit on the ute and trailer!
Thanks so very much to the wonderful members of the Forum.
Cheers

I can’t imagine being in your position muskrat. You seem to have a positive outlook which is great. I’m sure I speak for a few people when I say I wish there was more I could do to help rebuild your lives practically, but when it’s the other side of the world a cash donation is the next best thing. It’s a little for the long road ahead. Wishing you well for your new ventures 👍🏻

Hi Musky, I hope you and the missus are holding up OK, this all too frequent bush fire battles in OZ are a difficult thing to deal with. So many people I know have been hit with these.
To just name a few, so as you know that people have your back and heart in the times ahead.
My mum was sooo lucky to escape Black Saturday (Marysville) - handbag of stuff and a clean pair of underwear.
My Dad, (now deceased) even more lucky, the house spontaneously combusted as he watched it, Black Saturday (Kinglake)- Got a ute and trailer load of stuff out as the general store BBQ gas bottles exploded across the road in front of him. I’ll always remember his first quote, as I finally got to speak to him, (he was a notorious hoarder of good stuff, but mostly crap stuff), “ I really couldn’t have cleaned it up any better, but unfortunately now I only have one pair of socks”.
I hope you and family manage to travel through these times well, I also hope to meet you someday in person, with beers and talk over all things BSA.
Nearly forgot, I also also got snagged by the bushfires, 2014 Sth Gippsland farm, no huge personal or livestock loss but a financial loss nonetheless.
Love your humour and hope it stays intact, give us a few updates as you get time, we’re all on side MATE.
Thomas.

Thanks again fellas.
I have started re-stocking my tools with a small order to a forum member Andrew ( https://sites.google.com/site/priorymagnetos/home ).
Just had insurance payment that paid out my mortgage. Now purchasing a place in Lithgow and looking forward to setting up the shed.
