About Darren62
Joined September 2014
G'day, my name is Darren.

I live "down under" in Melbourne, Australia with my better half and my two dogs, a big sooky la-la German Shepherd named Bear, and a bossy Beagle named Ruby.

I am looking to escape the BS of corporate business, and to learn new and interesting skills that hopefully will change my life for the better. I hope I can do it here, and look forward to the new adventure with you all.

On a personal note, the picture on my profile is of two SE5a fighter aircraft from WW1. I am a huge WW1 aviation history buff, and an aviation nut in general.

I am actually building a 2 seat all wood sports plane in my garage at home. My goal is to fly it to Uluru (Ayres Rock) and camp at the great rock!

Hey there Darren

These are great goals and they are more than achievable! The more time you can spend on learning here within the Community at Wealthy Affiliate the better, but we've built WA so that you can work at your own pace!

I know that you are going to do great!

Wow! What a cool plane you're building, Darren! Love your photos and your determination to build a new life as well as that beauty of a plane =] Ayers Rock will welcome you in the not-too-distant future, and all of us here at WA will be blessed to share in your adventure! Kudos to you and that family of yours in a land I'm itching to visit ~ looks like it may happen for me next year :) All goodness in all you do, Gwynn

Darren62 Premium
Thanks Gwynn! Australia is a beautiful place. They don't call it "the lucky country" for nothing. You'll find most Aussies pretty lay back and friendly. Hope you can make it next year, I'm sure you'll enjoy the experience! All the best!

I don't know how I missed this message from you, Darren :( So sorry it took me so very long to realize it was here. How's the plane coming along? Gg
Reply
Darren62 Premium
G'day Gwynn! The plane is coming along very slowly unfortunately. I need some parts welded, but unfortunately in this country, as in yours, every one is wary of the litigious nature of society, so many are reluctant to do this work, even though it's not structural in nature. Very frustrating! I may have to drive 2 hours out into the bush, where country people don't seem to be as concerned with legal matters as our city cousins! I will put some posts up on my site shortly with some more pics.

Thanks for the message Gwynne! Speak to you soon!
Reply
GwynnGriffin Premium
Oh boy... Looking forward to more posts and pictures! Good luck with the welding necessity; sounds like it could be a real adventure to drive into the bush to get it done. My vote is for the bush people ;-)

Reply
Darren62 Premium
G'day Michael! Well you have one up on me mate! I've never visited the rock, but one day hope to take my plane there. I've been to Auckland once though. Nice place. My other half wants to go back there next year to watch Melbourne Storm take on the NZ Warriors, so may catch you "over the dutch!"
Reply
Mkells66 Premium
G'day mate I'm a massive Warriors Fan by the way..would love to do that and at the end we can grab a can or two to celebrate the Warriors win over the Storm..maybe throw some shrimps on the Barbe lmao...
Reply
Darren62 Premium
No worries, we'll keep in touch! Not a big fan of shrimps, but a good steak sounds great! You guys have got a good one in Hoffy for next year! Sorry to see him go, but he's getting closer to the end than the beginning, and Storm have a few good young kids coming through.

See ya bro!

Thanks Nola. Interesting dogs, beagles. I'll leave it at that! I prefer Shepherds because of their personalities though. Beautiful animals.

I'll try to be safe with my plane, so don't worry. It'll either fly, or it won't, if you know what I mean!

Well after that note, how could I not follow you back! I guess you already picked the aircraft on my profile without me having to tell you! Thanks for the follow mate! I'm sure your granddad, (not great granddad?) had plenty of stories to tell.
Reply
steve71 Premium
Sopwith Camel?... and yes - Grandad - born 1897... died 1983 (when I was 11) And no, he didn't tell his stories... had a thousand yard stare and was very generous though...
Reply
Darren62 Premium
G'day Steve, Sopwith Camel? Well at least you got the correct country! They are SE5a's, probably Great Britain's best fighter of the war and flown by many of the Great War aces.

Yes, it doesn't surprise me about your Granddad. The thousand yard stare is quite common among veterans, and is a sure sign of what the WW1 vets would have termed "shell shock." or we call Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Many never did get over the effects of their experiences.

Hi Darren, Thank you for your follow! I always wanted to learn to fly planes, so I really enjoyed your bio. Can't say I ever thought about building them though. My son works on aircraft engines. I look forward to following your journey! Christa :)
Reply
Darren62 Premium
Thanks Christabelle! Learning to fly can be like patting your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time, but that first solo is one of life's amazing experiences and great leaps of faith. Once those wheels leave the ground your life is literally in your own hands, and if that doesn't make you feel alive, nothing will!
Reply
Christabelle Premium
Wow! What a description, just makes me want to do it more! :)
Reply
Darren62 Premium
DO IT! It's an amazing journey of self belief and character building. Not many people get to experience the satisfaction and pride at having navigated an aircraft safely through the skies and back down to earth again! Plus the view is amazing!
Reply
Christabelle Premium
The only thing that has ever held me back is money so once I am making a profit online I may just DO IT! :)

Thanks Kyle, going great for now. Got my second website up. Will be back into the training today! I'm really enjoying the course, and there certainly is a lot to learn!

One question though. I want to take advantage of premium membership $19 for the next month as I know I'm going to need more than 2 websites and there is so much more to learn here, but before I commit, I just wanted to know how, if I ever needed to, do I cancel the membership? It isn't explained too well.

By the way, I have no intention of doing so, as I think what you offer here is fantastic, but I just want to have all my bases covered is all.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yes, you are in full control over your membership Darren. No contracts, you can cancel it at any time you like within your Account Settings. I can give you a hand doing this if you are every in a position where you need to do this, full transparency here. ;)

I recently saw a documentary about Hitler and it described his role in WW I, also the role of Mussolini. Interesting how their involvement pushed them to be who they turned out to be. I had not known before then that Hitler had been in the sights of an English soldier but the soldier did not shoot him.
Reply
Darren62 Premium
Yes, we have had that doco series her in Aus recently. Hitler did leave a charmed life in many ways to his ascendancy to Chancellor of the Reich. He survived many close calls in the trenches of WW1, and even assassination attempts during WW2. There was actually a prophecy that the 3 Reich would reign for 1,00 years but Hitler destroyed that with "the night of the long knifes" where upon the prophecy said it would rule for 12, which is exactly what happened!
