Generally the volunteers here are from all over the globe, including Australia and TN have had a number of campaigns covering Australia’s Wild Fires in the past.
Like Helen, I’m in UK also, and haven’t had toooo many problems loading TN…this time, but then I also try avoid US peak hour traffic so to speak…it can be horrendous on these high priority campaigns
I tend to do early morning, late night, usually overlapping with the likes of @cageycat and @Jim7 across the pond there
One tip I can offer you, which usually works for me. First off, save a separate link to the forum so you don’t have to load TN itself to get into it. Then when you can’t load TN campaign from the front page (I have had problems in the past when I couldn’t) go into the forum and use any of the links people have posted of the currrent campaign you want access. As you may have already noticed, members on here are always posting “Points of Interest” links to tiles in a campaign or to query what they are seeing and such
