    I just got another quote online and it was $987, so heaps cheaper already. The original price is through a broker that I have been with for years and have normally been good. Don't know what happened. I guess the more expensive the premium the higher commission they get? They cover it for just under 22k which is about right.

    When you flick you ute from gas to petrol, and it bursts into flames on a busy road lined thick with cars. Also hate it when you go to hit the brakes when your ute is on fire and the pedal goes to the floor. Makes me really, really grumpy. Don't like it much watching it quickly burn while waiting for the Fire Brigade.

    Yeah, written off. Completely burnt out. Was lucky I had time to quickly grab the invoice book, phone, unhitch the trailer, and had help from a bystander to turf the stuff out of the back of the canopy. Was sh#tting myself that it may go boom, but it just made a loud woosh sound when something let go. I had craploads of receipts in the glovebox that I lost. The inconvenience up and coming is going to be the problem. I am busy atm.

    OMG! Inconvenience aside, glad you weren't hurt, that would have had you needing a clean pair of undies I bet.

    Yep, certainly got the heart pumping. It just seems that those kind of things happen to others, and not you lol.

    Was just an old 90s model Hilux Dual cab. Not really worried about the ute,although it was a clean rig for its age, just a PITA. There is a hale damage auction on tomorrow, so might go for a sticky beak.

    Lets hope we don't meet back here in a few hours haha.

    Not sure what the weather is like at Penrith but it hasn't rained much here today just some light showers. Hopefully we get a decent game instead of a dropfest in the wet.

    Been there done that Dennis. Nightmare job, especially trying to get the ground level when all the mud is sticking to your boots and making a mess in general. The underquoting just rubs it in even more. Grab a beer and enjoy the game that's about to start.
