Ok, I will let everybody in on the truth. Gunna doesn't like Cairns bay because;

a) he has to leave the island
b) its a 15 minute stroll to the cliff, up and down some mild inclines, necessitating carrying of gear etc.
c) the launching is un-retreiveable and requires a certain attitide
d) the landing necessitates precision (something Gunna is capable of though)

And the flying... well it's the best I've ever seen on the frontside.

Yes that is true, why leave the Island to drive 1.5hrs while I have just as good here at home.

More like a stroll for a Mountain Goat, besides at home all I have to do is get out of the car and throw off.

I pay way to much money for my planes not to get them back.

Yes I may be able to spot land but it isn't my kinda fun flying there.

Awww Gunna, no need to take it personally, I like to tempt you off the island from time to time, there really are some great sites to fly our toy planes at.

Yes that maybe true but I left "Gods Country" to live down on the Island because it has the best slopes at your doorstep no matter what wind direction.

C'mon Sam, leave the bloke alone. He'll come off the island.

I'm sure he'll be at Camperdown next year........
