Actully, I'll have to agree with Kilgore on that Aussienick. Melbourne beats Sydeny hands down, and therefore beats everyone else hands down

Getting back on topic, I didn't have any troubles with DFR, apart from the fact that orignally all the mail they sent was adressed to Kevin Whitehouse. I don't know why, but they somehow forgot my first name and reffered to me by my Middle name.

Melbourne is an urban hole.

Well at least in Melbourne, you can drive around without getting lost. Its the best city for driving and it offers more than any other city. 8)

Is it normal for the medical group to take a while to pass people medically after seeing a specialist? My results were given nearly 2 weeks ago and still no update. I called up just several days ago asking why things take a while, i was told it just takes time. It should not take so long to look at some Faxed information!

DRF suck, once I got accepted in I had to wait 4months before my actual enlistment date, and most of the guys in my course at ARTC had been waiting for a few months, but then there was a few who had only rang 131901 about a month before they were at Kapooka so they just pull places out of their ass.

I think they only start the courses twice a year so you have to wait for one of them.

Things are finally progressing now.... I got my blood test done and some important forms signed. I'll be basically enlisted in the 10 of January, 2006.

One thing im confused about is the PFA... One form said it must be done 8 weeks 'prior' to enlistment, while another form says go ASAP and do it every 8 weeks until i go to kapooka. I think things have been changed or something because reruits told me they didn't need to do a PFA as often as once in every 8 weeks.

I just did my PFA last Friday and am doing another one on the 19th of August because of the 8 weeks. You do it earlier for short notice if anyone drops out. I was called up today and asked if I would be right to go on Monday but it was a bit too soon for me, I want to turn 18 and get plastered for a couple of weeks.

Its a bit of a headache if you think about it. Well at least its progress. I wish i could be able to do mine in a barracks not far away.

Im going to be sent to kapooka on 10th january... are you? Oh and are you going regs or reserves?
