I am assuming you mean the Really Big Island - otherwise I would extend an Aloha Invitation to you all. :)

I was gonna say Dean. I thought a giant PRA to Hawaii by the Aussies would have been more newsworthy! :winkie:

Hmm. I guess Eurasia is the biggest Island of all?

Have a great time and regale us with tales of the Land of Oz, as summer draws to a close . . .

Dear Dave, I know you're egging us on, there's only ONE big island on the planet, the greatest, the largest, the Donovan filled Australia. Hawaii is like Darwin, it's isolated, has enormous palms and was bombed.

Having said that, let me say this, Troy is such a gentleman, a real palm explorer and palm adventurer whom should be taken seriously, and that's where I let him down, I don't take anybody seriously. Luckily for Troy and Col, others will look after them like Daryl and Michael, two of the most hospitable and knowledgeable palm people on the planet, Troy, be amazed.
