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 #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 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 […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #17 – Day 10

(Monday 5-December-2014) @4:46pm The last day of another outing, and being the multicultural-lovin guy I am I decide to free-up some pack weight going back up, and have a bash at this mystery satchel of Indian food. I often throw leftover food down the hill – once I’m far enough away from my camp that […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #17 – Days 8 & 9

(Sunday 4-January-2015) @5:58pm Another two days of stinking heat and it’s finally starting to rain. The forecast was for afternoon showers and although a storm began building at midday, all it did all afternoon was stop the wind from cooling the place down and add to the humidity. Fucked even more-so by the fact there […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #17 – Days 4, 5, 6 & 7

(Friday 2-January-2014) @2:27pm Is been a couple days since the last journal entry because it’s been (a) too hot to give a shit and (b) the same basic things happening during those four days: get up, chug some coffee, go dig a hole to shit in then grab some food and scatter it around for […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #17 – Day 3

(Monday // 29-December-2014) Alright I’m not gunna bother with the usual dribble about the happenings of the day ’cause they were pretty much standard. Relaxing day, went for water, felt something in my sock all the way back and just knew it was a leech, got back to camp and removed said leech then tossed […]

The Rainforest Journals: Outing #17 – Day 1

(Saturday // 27-December-2014) @4:33pm Having zig-zagged my way down the mountain and out into the valley on the usual assortment of trails, there is nothing better than arriving at camp, unclipping the 15kg strapped to your back and setting-down the shopping bag with 5kg of fresh fruit and water before getting some coffee on then […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #16 – Day 7

(Saturday 20-December-2014) @7:42pm The sun is about to set on a relaxing day spent reading, cooling off and clicking at the occasional bird here and there. Here’s what it sounded like: Todays birdly midday forest sounds.. I’m pleased to announce that there was no Marsupial fighting at all last night, since both Possums got around […]
