Outing #13

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13: Day 10

(Sunday 9-November-2014) @12:42pm Junior has already paid a visit this morning, although he didn’t hang around the tent much because I didn’t put any food out for him. I thought about putting some pasta on to cook quickly, then decided not to bother: Not only has he had more than enough food from me in […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 9

(Saturday 8-November-2014) @10:18am So I’m just waiting for whichever lizards are due to come while I go about my morning caffination routine, when I had the thought to cook some lizard dinners when I’m in town next, then bring that down with me next time. I generally only get three nights in town so there’s […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 8

(Friday 7-November-2014) MONITOR MATTERS @4:25pm Well Broeski still hasn’t shown-up, though the new lizard on the block was back this afternoon for pasta which is no great surprise,  given the quantity of free food he pigged-out on yesterday. It’s pretty easy to tell whether it’s the same Monitor that stuffed his guts the day before […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 7

(Thursday 6-November-2014) @10:46am So on day seven, more than half-way through this outing, I’m pretty happy to note that I’ve used almost exactly half my food supplies: half the instant coffee is gone, one of the large bags of powdered milk is gone, I’m halfway through the 1kg bag of sugar I brought,  there’s more […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 6

(Wednesday 5-November-2014) THE BIRD IS THE WORD @10:02am So this morning was kicked off with the adult/youngen duo walking around the tent, about half an hour ago now.  Still half asleep I thought it might’ve been Broeski, then I realized it was way to early for him to be out. “Crunch Crunch Crunch”, I hear […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 5

(Tuesday 4-November-2014) @10:40am Well I’m waiting for Lizard to stop by again this morning, but I grow bored waiting consecutive days for him to not show-up. I’ll give him until 1-2pm I reckon, then go for water. 5:41pm I didn’t go for water, but not because I was hanging-out for the lizard to come. I […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 4

(Monday 3-November-2014) THE SMACKY-EATER @10:03am Oh my we got some nice clear photos of the Possum last night. I had considered appending yesterday’s post, but the camera was too flat to wifi the photos over to the phone so I figured it’d just have to kick-off todays entry instead. I have to note too that […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 3

(Sunday 2-November-2014) BUSHFIRE UPDATE: STILL OUT OF CONTROL Well, having fallen asleep last night at about eight, I awoke to a clear blue sky and a cool breeze without even a hint of smoke in it. First things being first, I gulped my usual 3-4 cups of coffee before even switching-on my phone, but when […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 2

(Saturday 1-November-2014) @12:22pm Last night I complain about the lack of wind, today I get wind in spades. I’m not sure what’s with all the thunderstorms but they have been a daily occurrence for the past two weeks or so now. The Bureau of Meteorology website says there’ll be a “chance of a thunderstorm” for […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Day 1

(Friday 31-October-2014) @10:53am Last minute rushing to get shit stuffed in the pack and start heading out. Fortunately today, I missed the old Finnish dood so I got out without any lengthy conversations sucking time out of my day. I’ll continue this when I’m at camp. @7:34pm Yeah the old guy. Don’t get me wrong […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Pre

(Wednesday 29-October-2014) Alright so this week I’ve got myself a minor upgrade to my wildlife-loving toolbox: a small, relatively inexpensive compact digital camera: a Nikon Coolpix 6800 with 12x optical zoom and wifi connectivity. Anybody who is even slightly tech-savvy will understand why switching to an actual camera is an upgrade over the one on […]
