Outing #7

Day 7 – Sunday 17-Aug-2014

@10:00am Started bucketing rain last night at about 7:00pm, and still hasn’t stopped this morning. I haven’t been able to leave my tiny plastic cover in over fifteen hours now, and it’s pissing me off because it’s pretty cramped in here. @11:06am The rain has finally stopped for now! Hope it stays stopped a while […]

Day 6 – Saturday 16-Aug-2014

@7:59am The rain comes today, right through until Tuesday. Frustrating, when I’m keen to make my new camp liveable. Fuck it: I’ve decided to pack everything up, walk down to the new camp and try and setup before it rains. It’s supposed to rain all day and night, but I haven’t felt a drop so […]

Day 5 – Friday 15-Aug-2014

@8:34am The mission objective for today is to go back and start clearing the new site. Tell ya what, it’s just insane how bad I smell right now. :) Before I headed down for this trip, the boss – the guy who owns the backpackers I stay at when I’m in town – suggested I […]

Day 4 – Thursday 14-Aug-2014

@7:34am No sooner had I opened my eyes, the little Antechinus she-devils were scurrying and crashing around in the leaves. I haven’t seen more than one at a time, till a moment ago when I not only saw two at the same time, but one chasing the other away from the food. Not wanting either […]

Day 3 – Wednesday, 13/Aug/2014

@9:31am Woke-up at around 7:30am to lovely thick mist/fog, which has cleared now to be replaced with Sunshine. @10:22am So, breakfast has been had, noodles today, and I’m packing-up to go down this forgotten trail. Three Outings ago I found a trail that’s so disused, there’s grass growing in the middle of it. Following it […]

Day 2 – Tuesday, 12-Aug-2014

@8:53am So it’s almost 9:00am, and I’ve had a few coffees. It’s started to drizzle rain, and the entire sky looks overcast. The rain isn’t heavy enough to cause me any issues with wetness, but I don’t know whether there’ll be too much bushwalking today if it persists. The Cockatoos don’t sound too bothered by […]

Day 1 – Monday 11-Aug-2014

@11:25am The Boss has come and locked my bags in storage for me, and I’m almost ready to get moving. I haven’t eaten any solid food today, and won’t until I’ve walked down the mountain and setup my camp. Hope my sleeping-bag is still where I stashed it, but since I’ve never seen any evidence […]
