Havent got firm date, but was told if it all goes to plan it will be late summer which im pretty sure will mean August, maybe early september.  Which will work out good as I will be needing a change from a potential 6 week stint at Whitesands NM.  But as everything in my world right now even that isnt locked on for certain.
 
7 hour drive, thats not too bad, I used to drive 6 hours to head up to Vegas NV for the weekendf rom Yuma AZ !!!!

So do I take it that you've got a gig at the School of Arty? You poor barsteward, from those who have been there I've been led to believe that Pucka is a shit of a place. When I was in the Army the School was in Manley, Sydney, which was a dream posting. Never fear though, if you're not worried about driving for a few hours then Southern New South Wales and the whole of Victoria are within a reasonable distance and there are some awesome spots there.

AE,
Pucka isn't the worst place in the world to be. Probably not that exciting in itself, but less than 2hrs from Melbourne - Australia's 2nd biggest city (and its best). Plenty of opportunities to do pretty much anything you find entertaining. Melbourne is well known for its good eating & its vibrant live music scene. If you are a gambling man it also has a big casino.
 
Pucka is also pretty central to the better bits of Victoria & Southern New South Wales. You are close to some of Australia's best wine making country. You can also take weekend excursions to snowfields during winter (to the east) and some of Australia's best surf beaches in summer (south of Melbourne). There are plenty of places to go fishing (if it ever rains again), bushwalking & all that other outdoorsy stuff.
 
Aussies are sports mad, so you can probably find almost anything you want if you look. Stuff like Basketball & possibly even Baseball might be available in & around Pucka. If you are prepared to travel to Melbourne on weekends you could certainly find American Football & perhaps even Ice Hockey. Of course, you could go native & take up Aussie Rules or Cricket, depends how easy you are to civilize.http://www.strategypage.com/CuteSoft_Client/CuteEditor/Images/emteeth.gif" align="absMiddle" border="0" alt="" />
 
I imagine the guys on base can tell you more, but you could do worse that be at Puckapunyal.
