Hello an Aussie joining in

Hello everyone

I found this forum while looking for some help with my K5.
Had a look around and thought this could be a good place to keep up with what is happening with Pentax

Thanks for a great looking forum that also appears as a friendly and helpful place.

I live in New South Wales in a small town just 70km south of Tamworth(country music Capital of Aus)

A nice part of Aus to live in.
my wife and I are recently retired from work and are intending to travel around aus with our caravan.

thanks
Frank

Welcome to the Forum. There are a bunch of active Aussies at PF and you will enjoy participating.

I drove inland a few times from Brizzie to Sydney via Tamworth and it is a nice drive and nice county.

Welcome to the Forums. I am sort of retired but working harder than ever. We like Tamworth (drive through it on the way to Sydney and sometimes stay there). Give us a "hoy" if you are travelling north.

Welcome to the forum and welcome to retirement, at least you've got time now to give the K5 a proper work out.
