    Well,

    Work has done it again,

    After spending $$$ on lights, hours on creation of canes, poles and boards and brain numbing times of sequencing, Work have told me to move location in very Early December.

    GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    Will i ever get to show my display? This is 2 years in a row now.

    Well, fear not. I am assured I will have atleast 3 years in my new location, and that location is


    ADELAIDE


    Thats right, Ryan, watch out, i will be relocating to an area north of the city and an actual location yet to be chosen.

    I certainly hope so, Matt

    Realistically, they could be displayed at any time of year ... when you are home! I'd just set them up and enjoy ;)

    I reakon for this year it may be a good project to actually do your car up in lights, at least this way you can utilise some of your lights and still have some fun

    Well here's a little "silver lining" for you, you'll have 3 years of prep for an awesome display in 2013. :) I hope you get a chance to put a little something up before Christmas, give your neighbours a preview for 2013, more importantly for your sanity!
    Good luck with your move!

    I'm predicting that this year you should at least double your channel count from 2011 Matt.

    Good luck with the move and i do hope that you get your lights up and going. At least with S.A. you're not likely to get the torrential rain that Brissie offers during lighting season. I have heard that they do get some horizontal rain down that way though.

    Then it will look very pretty as it is driven across the country. Maybe you can see if you can complete with the lights on the rig, pulling the trailer with your car on it.

    Welcome to the Adelaide Matt, pitty it was not last year you was moving to the north of Adelaide, my neighbour was selling his house last year and our street and area does alot of christmas lights ( plus we all want him out as he has no christmas spirit).
    And yes watch out for the horizontal rain, it can be a real killer in some parts of Adelaide.
