When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

Cheers for the comments guys and it was great to meet you Stephen and the offer of help to find the place I was looking for, this is exactly why I love the forum and don't do Facebook, where else would you get somebody (Stephen 😜) just pull up and offer assistance to people that have only conversed over the forum.
After now meeting Clay and Stephen I think you SA guys are a pretty cool bunch Frank and I are really looking forward to meeting everyone when we get to Nuriootpa.
