    I reckon Freckle is a multi millionaire. Owns so much property his lost count of what he owns!

    Haha,

    How amusing, Freckle, that is exactly the image I had in my head of you, but with a financial review in one hand and your fist shaking at those 'devils in the Eastern States'.

    Thanks for posting your investing strategy, so no property? Mainly silver mines? What field is the business in that you make great cash flow from? You can still be vague, the C$I%A guy reading through all these posts in 'Merica won't be able to put a picture together.

    Just curious.

    I did an RPData search and there is no record of a Mr/Mrs Freckle owning property in Aus.

    Of course it is a remote possibility that Freckle is not 'Freckle's' real name.

    Derek, is it really that easy to find out who owns what?

    Transport and logistics. I've got a mate who keeps nagging me to organise work for him and his gear. I've been cruising the last 6 months and wasn't really interested in doing too much just yet but the old itch is back after organising a few loads to get him back from the east coast after he kinda got marooned there. I can't argue with 2k for a mornings work. That's led into another mob wanting to position logistic resources for 11 months. A deal that's worth around 3k/wk for 11 months for a few hrs a week.

    I can see this going ballistic over the next 6 months so I'm yet to decide if I go hard for 12-18mths, make some good coin then pull the pin. We'll see.

    That's really great Freckle, good on you for getting into it and making some good (great) money. Hopefully you continue to rake it in.

    Thanks for sharing…. yes

    Cheers

    It sure is Joe! If I knew your last name I could tell you exactly what you own and have previously owned and exactly how much you paid for it on the exact date. Pretty scary really!

    Sounds good Freckle! Is this heavily reliant on the slowing mining industry though? Or do you see the minimal capital outlay on your part as a hedge against anything that could happen short term?

    Need a business partner located on the east cost? haha

    Cheers,

    I am pretty sure Freckle is the old 'Jack Flash', but i'm sure that isn't his real name anyway.

    I like the anonymity about it!

    Yeah it is amazing at what information is publicly available for the right price! Does come in handy when people like to talk themselves up saying how much they own and how little they paid thinking they can't be proved otherwise! Every now and then that makes my day :)

    More so resources as opposed to just mining. Mining still needs a substantial logistics supply line. Some of it specialised in heavy lift gear.

    I'm a middle man. There's literally thousands of small owner operators out there who have neither the smarts nor time to chase loads. Then there's small logistic companies who struggle to find the right subbies with the right gear so they can chase contracts. One I was talking to the other day needs 20 trucks for 12 months. She only has 6 of her own.

    My mate was doing loads out of Adelaide to WA for 5-6k. I do a few hours work and get him 11k for the same work and he cuts me 10%. I can put around 10k through his books per week per vehicle (he has 2) with very little effort. If I was dealing direct with the source I could get more but more headaches. Live and let live. 

    I could run and organise about 20 trucks on my own. Hard on the head at times but good coin. Outlay is a phone and computer. Nothing I don't have already. I can do it from anywhere as well.

    I am hopeful that Freckle will purchase a packet of Allans Freckles, lick one, stamp his face a few times with its coloured dots, and post a pic for us.  Can't help but get that concept out of my head.  Pleeeeeease Freckle??
