Time for coffee and catching up on some lost sleep! Very soon I'll need to be back into building mode as I look at house plans :). The story continues...

It doesn't really matter now - last night and I can then head home to my own familiar warm bed. Aaaah :).
A few Nexus folk will be visiting soon, a couple of them staying the night too, just for kicks. Although maybe the bitter cold will change their minds.
14 hours to go! w00t!

Settling in with the others who are camping out and making friends with those who I guess will one day be my neighbours. We're expecting some more 'campers' to turn up tomorrow morning.
But for now, it's time to get some sleep. Goodnight :)
I'm rather bored and a little lonely, but hopefully I'll get a good nights sleep and tomorrow will go quickly :). Its a bit of an adventure so I'm going to do my best to enjoy it :)
So here goes. The long wait begins - far earlier than I anticipated. I'm 4th in line with the others who will camp alongside me for the next two nights until the land release on Monday morning.
The long wait begins...
But overcoming that disappointment, there are two other possibly suitable blocks I'm considering. I have to find the balance between not rushing such a big decision, and not missing out on an opportunity.
Will I camp out 45 hours for another block, or will I give up on this release and hope something else turns up.
Time will tell.

I've started preparing. Deck chair ready. Umbrella ready. Esky and sleeping bag ready. BlackBerry and a spare battery ready to go.
I wonder if anyone else will be there in line too Sunday night? Or will people turn up early Monday? Time will tell.
Now, if only someone would sponsor the cost of the block. Anyone? :)

You see, stage 4 of 'The Landing' at Warner Lakes goes on sale this coming Monday the 28th June. Due to popularity, lots are sold on a first come, first served basis. The office opens at 10am on Monday, and first through the door gets first choice of all lots on offer.
After talking with Ben Burns, the very friendly sales agent for Warner Lakes, I was made aware that some people start lining up outside the sales office very early. And when I say 'early', I mean the night before!!!
So this is it. If I want the best chance at getting the block I'm after, I need to join the queue and camp the night outside the sales office. You've seen it for the iPhone. You've seen it for U2 tickets, and now it's my turn to brave the winter night for the opportunity to buy my very own piece of land at Warner Lakes!
I'm going to be blogging the whole experience live - leading up to, during, and after the weekend's craziness.
Will there be many others camping out for land? Will I be close enough to the front of the line to be in the running for my block? Will I get the land after all?
Stay tuned as I prepare :)
In just a few short days, I will embark on a quest to buy my first block of land. Its been a long time coming but hopefully it's finally coming together.
I'm looking at the lovely Warner Lakes estate, in Warner, Queensland, Australia. It's a beautifully masterplanned estate by developer 'PEET'. With only a few land releases left, and only 17km from the city, it's quickly becoming a very sought after area.
Over the coming days I'll be blogging my advertures as I journey toward owning my very own piece of turf in the Warner Lakes estate.
Stay tuned :)
