Brush-tailed Possum

Outing #41: Back to civilization

New sunglasses, a newly cleaned campsite and a new woman telling me to hurry-up and end the camping silliness and return to her.

Outing #39: The “Wet Season” is here

Brown rainwater is better than no water.

Outing #39: If a tree falls in the woods..

As usual the Possums are happy to see me back, and the wet brings down a monster tree.

Outing #38: All that and more!

Featured image: A nice, clear macro of a nervous Bobbi. Taken while we had our half-hour bread'n'pat session the other night.

Spring has sprung, and horny animals can be heard all over the place making very weird noises all night long.

Outing #37: Rain all day, Possums all night

Guido is becoming a proper adult man-possum, Marsupial Mice around the tent and string has sprung!

Outing #31 – Too sick to care

Not much of an entry for this outing, because I’m coughing-up gobs of pus constantly and am as sick as a mangled cat.

Outing #30 – Water Water Everywhere

(Monday 8-June-2015) Tell ya what: just now, uploading some photos for the post I’ve gotta say that little Nikon compact camera was arguably the best purchase I made as far as gear goes. Mind you, none of the camping or hiking gear I’ve bought has let me down in any way – I researched the […]

Outing #28 – Town, Women & Forest

(Monday 5-May-2015) Alright. Outing 28. These fucking journals just go on forever. They’re like an intrusion on my life, and I dunno how people keep dairies every day, year after year, religiously. This is the 136th journal entry. Having walked down only Friday – and considering the rain has been pretty much constantly falling since […]

Outing #20: Days 5-12

This will be mainly a photo-post, since – outside of the rain – there’s not that much different been going on for the past few days. The Possums have been well behaved, I haven’t heard a single gnawing sound from the rats, and whenever the sun comes out Broeski follows. Oh man this one fucking […]

Outing #20 – Days 1-4: Alice, Broeski & Shrooms

(Friday 6-February-2015) Day 1 THE WEEK IN TOWN Today, the walk out here was the usual bitter-sweet, whatever deal; half of me wished to stay in town, the other half wanted to come back out to my animal brothers and sisters but, having spent the last four days being nothing more than a pair of […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #19 – Days 8-10

(Friday 30-January-2015) Day 8 I was going to simply append this section onto yesterday’s post, but I guess – since it happened post-midnight – it’s technically today anyhow. To be honest, I’m not sure which days belong where – just that it all happened at some point in the past two days. Pardon any typos […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #19 – Day 6 & 7

(Wednesday 28-January-2015) Day 6 It irks me a little that I’ve a gap between Day 2 and this post, but what can you do? I have some photos from these days but owing to the bad weather they were pretty uneventful as concerns animals Anyway. IT NEVER RAINS, ONLY POURS. The rain has not stopped […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #19 – Day 2

(Saturday 24-January-2015) AQUISITION OF WATER Though I didn’t much feel like it, today I had to walk the ~6km round trip to get my water bottles filled. Coming down yesterday I only had one empty juice bottle and that’s only good till the next morning. No Wallabies, no lizards, no Echidna, no animals at all […]

The Rainforest Journals: Outing #19 – Day 1

(Friday 23-January-2015) Note: Due to a fast, huge storm ripping through the valley I’ve been delayed a bit in posting this. Call me paranoid but I don’t want to transmit electrical signals *through* a storm when I can see the lightning all around the area seeking-out ground-points. THE WEEK UPSTAIRS A good week spent in […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #18 – Days 6-7

The last two nights have been pretty hectic, with Possums climbing the tent, hissing at one another and much grunting about the place.   Day 6 (Saturday 17-January-2015) THE FOUR REGULARS ARE FINE As I mentioned in a previous post Bobby and Guido are still being their pushy, obnoxious selves: standing over the food, intimidating […]
