I never heard of Flinders Island before, so I just looked it up. That's pretty amazing, you live on an island with about 1,000 other people. It looks almost untouched by humans.

Must be a pretty cool place to live, big change from something like California. I imagine what the riding must be like.

OP: Welcome aboard, show some pics!

Flinders island is quite and clean. It's the main island in a group of around thirty islands. I wouldn't say untouched. Shortly after WWII soldier settlers came to the islands with fire and bulldozers. The locals are descendants of aborigines, sealers, convicts, pirates and ex soldiers. We have almost zero crime but that's probably because we all know one another. I have almost no traffic to deal with but everyone knows who just flew past them. I am unofficially the fastest thing on our local roads!

All that sounds great, but doesn't most everything you want, have to be shipped in?

How much does the "unofficial fastest thing on the island" have to pay for a new set of tires or battery for his magnificent flying machine?

I'll keep it brief as its Nieves intro.
There is both air freight and sea freight. Also if your in the know plenty of private planes and fishing vessels moving between the islands and the mainland. My poor 919 came from Victoria, Australia to Flinders island in a stock freighter. It was on the lower deck. 12 hrs awash with salt spray, cow shit and vomit. Freight prices are regulated and subsidized by the government. It is a huge cost to anyone living and working on the island. But the ocean is an effective barrier at keeping idiots away from my home, family and friends. Cheers.
