      Tassie Talk

      Being a Tassie newbie (and since the tasmania section is quite quiet) i thought i'd try and kick start things a little

      So how about some random chitter chat about our great island, things you've seen, places to go... just general life in tassie stuff?

      I'm the same Paul. I like lots of hills, fast flowing rivers and cooler weather. I'm a country bumpkin at heart so was so happy to leave Sydney. Been here 2 years in February and still haven't been to Hobart. Visited it when on holiday - really liked it - but not made it 'down south' yet. Plenty to keep us busy up here in Devonport and surrounds - never a dull moment. By the way you say you have your heater on - didn't find it at all cold today. Back and front doors and all windows open.

      must say i loved it up your way as well, did a fair bit of camping around mole creek... and would shamelessly drive to devonport for a maccers breakfast lol, next time you're down this way have an explore of the tasman peninsula if you haven't already, some great sights there!

      I thought you got off the ferry and drove down to Hobart that day. If I'd known you were in the area for longer you could have stayed with us!!!!

      thanks! :) i did drive there at first and worked on a farm for a few weeks but things didn't work out and the job hunting was a bit slow so ended up very pennyless and sleeping in my car lol, got to see some great sights moving around but couldn't appreciate things as much as i wanted as was stressing about money all the time.

      Well, I'm very glad you've found a job and a flat. Hope things continue to be good for you.

      I notice a few young people sleeping in their cars/vans in car parks and lay-bys ..... all nationalities and with number plates from all over Australia. Many young Asians most of them doing fruit picking and farm work. A lot of them get accommodation on the farms. Not an easy life.

      that didn't last long, i didn't really have enough local knowledge to make it work, am working for woolworths now as a delivery driver, actually way surpassed my expectations and a really great company to work for!
      @JockinTas seen quite a few myself as well, is bloody hard to get on the rental market here i reckon as well
