A. I've had several best days (including epic storm days), but the day I proposed to my then girlfriend (now fiancee) would be the best of all! =D

Q. On average how many domestic and/or international flights do you do each year? Which interstate and/or overseas destination(s) do you travel to the most often on average? Have you also done any scenic flights, helicopter flights, flown in hot-air balloons, etc?

Since 2003 I've done an average of 2.2 domestic and/or international flights per year, or a combined total of 31.

2003 - 0
2004 - 0
2005 - 2 (Melbourne-Hobart, and Launceston-Melbourne)
2006 - 2 (Melbourne-Christchurch, and Christchurch-Melbourne)
2007 - 4 (Melbourne-Gold Coast/Coolangatta, Brisbane-Hamilton Island, Hamilton Island-Brisbane, and Brisbane-Melbourne)
2008 - 0
2009 - 0
2010 - 2 (Melbourne-Sydney, and Sydney-Melbourne)
2011 - 2 (Melbourne-Nadi, and Nadi-Melbourne)
2012 - 4 (Melbourne-Sydney, Sydney-Melbourne, Melbourne-Brisbane, and Brisbane-Nadi)
2013 - 6 (Nadi-Brisbane, Brisbane-Sydney, Melbourne-Brisbane, Brisbane-Cairns, Cairns-Melbourne, and Adelaide-Melbourne)
2014 - 6 (Melbourne-Adelaide, Adelaide-Melbourne, Melbourne-Nadi, Nadi-Nausori/Suva, Nausori/Suva-Nadi, and Nadi-Melbourne)
2015 - 3 (Melbourne-Darwin, Darwin-Melbourne, and Melbourne-Sydney)

My most frequent interstate and overseas destinations from Melbourne are Sydney (followed by Brisbane and Adelaide) and Fiji respectively.

By Fiji I usually mean Nadi (usually direct), even though I typically base myself in Suva because of my fiancee and her family. However, I've only flown between Nadi and Nausori International Airport a couple of times. Usually I go by road between Nadi and the Fijian Capital; the Coral Coast is very scenic! smile

As for Brisbane, I've never properly visited the City, but for me the airport has always in the past been a 'gateway' when making passage between various points north and south along the Australian East Coast (Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast, the Whitsunday Islands, and Cairns, Far North Queensland) and/or to/from Fiji.

I have also clocked up 2 scenic flights and 3 helicopter flights over the past 14 years to now:

2006 - 2 (Scenic flight over the NSW South Coast between Merimbula and Eden, and scenic flight over Te Anau/Doubtful Sound/Lake Manapouri, New Zealand's South Island)
2007 - 2 (Helicopter flight over the Gold Coast from Dreamworld, and helicopter flight over the Great Barrier Reef in the Whitsundays)
2012 - 1 (Helicopter flight over the Twelve Apostles while on a scenic bus tour of the Great Ocean Road and Grampians from Melbourne)

A. Firstly, it should be one question, not 3! So I have broken them down into parts smile

Part a) Maybe once a year
Part b) Brisbane
Part c) Not in a long time, but when I was younger, I used to go with a mate whose uncle owned his own plane who regularly went from Albion Park Airport to Goulburn and we used to have fun going off the escarpment and doing a vertical drop where our stomachs used to be somewhere in the air.

Q. Who has travelled faster the Rainiac (900km/h)?

(I know I do everyday)

A. There are too many to name. But generally, comedy, sci-fi, documentaries and useful practical shows (I'm talking about Gardening Australia and similar shows instead of say the Block).

Also too WR, we are travelling at tremendous speeds through space, thus was can be (and are) travelling faster then 900km per hour.

Q. Are we going to have a good snow season here in Oz?

A. Yes. Even though a mining town in the Hunter Valley, covered in coal dust, living costs are above average, we cope very strong westerly winds, but we get one of the best lightning storm views and strikes around. Not only that, we live just out of town too. We have plenty of work to do in the yard and generally have nice big bonfires every year (weather permiting).

Being born and breed in the Illawarra region myself, I remember when Horsely Park, Albion Park, Barrack Heights all being stage 1 developments. Even the F6 (now M1) stopping at Fowlers Road. Kiama was just a little fishing village, Jamberoo Recreation Park was a million miles away form anywhere else. Sadly, I preferred the bush and rainforests then the sandy beaches. My grandmother even still lives at Mt Warrigal, and all my relo's (who migrated Australia) who have died all are buried in the region. So it still part of my home, but I like where I live better.

Q. Where would you like to live, if you can afford it?

A. I wouldn't mind living in Gerringong or Gerroa. Still within easy driving distance to Shellharbour which has everything you need. Plus I could go bodyboarding more easily. In saying that I do like where I live.

Q. Are you sick of winter yet? I know I am lol.

A. I like the added warmth, especially how warm the sun becomes and the early sunrises. I like the changeable weather of September too, but it seems absent this year.

Q. Have you been swooped by the magpies yet? Lol

A. Yes, a couple of weeks age. I was on Lismore golf club and was watching a playing partner's shot. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw something, turned around, and there was this magpie coming hurtling towards me at quite some speed. Scared the life out of me, but I ducked just in time luckily.

Q. What is your most memorable animal sighting in the wild?

A. The first thing that came to my head was my trip to the snowy mountains back in July, we saw a herd of brumbies quite close to our campsite. Was quite a spectacular sight and totally unexpected. Coming with a couple of metres of a deer while I was a kid crawling through lantana was pretty memorable too.

Q. What is your favourite animal?

A. I love frogs. I don't know why, but I think the way they hop around the place is so amazing, along with the was they catch their food with their enormous tongue. They're so cute too. I also love ducks.

Q. What is you least favourite animal?

A. @Derek Probably a saltwater crocodile or a pack of wolves. Sorry Brett didn't see your answer until I posted.

A. @Brett. No have not before, but would love to go to Africa to see the wildlife there, also Yellowstone National Park would be cool for wildlife.

Q. What animal (if any) did you always want to be as a child? I wanted to be a cheetah.

A. An eagle or falcon, the ability to soar in the skies. I still like watching birds when they fly. We have magpies, butcher birds, king parrots and lorikeets feeding in our trees at home. Just watching their antics they get up to and just how they can manoeuvrer through the air.

Q. What creature that gives you the creeps?
