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 #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 – 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 – Day 3

(Wednesday 14-January-2015) I won’t bother time stamping this. In fact I’m finding the time-stamp shit a bit pointless to be honest, at this juncture in the journal record keeping. Often I don’t write the days events down until the next day anyway, and who gives a shit what time it happened? Indeed, after being down […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #18 – Days 1 & 2

(Monday 12-January-2015) May as well grab a coffee or something and get comfortable for this one; it’s a novella. Alice I don’t even know where to start mentally arranging a way to accurately convey this week’s bittersweet, frustrating stay in town. Suffice to say it ended on a poignant note though with Eric – the […]

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 6

Brush-tail Possums snot-on over a tomato, and hungry, squawking Currawong chicks visit with their Mum.

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #16 – Day 3

(Tuesday 16-December-2014) @~10:30am Another feed-intensive night for the young, ever-hungry Possum saw him pig his way through a full banana and a half, before moving-on to buiscuts, flat-bread and dried cranberries. Shortly after he left, the second Possum – the skittish one – snuck over to scavenge the leftovers and I gotta say I felt […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #16 – Day 1

(Sunday 14-December-2014) @5:22pm This week I’ve brought a few different foods; some pearl cous-cous add well as some plain tomato paste and morocan spice mix to go with it, “breakfast” buiscuts, flat bread and some Indian curry packet that was sitting there in the kitchen of the backpackers unopened. I also ripped some nice-looking brown […]

The beetles invade, skeletal joggers, rats in the roof and a scared grasshopper.

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #15 – Day 4

(Wednesday 3-December-2014) @~10:00am I woke-up this morning to a loud, guttural pig-like oinking noise just a few meters from the tent. Half asleep and with contact lenses still clouded-over, I sit up and look out the door towards where this sound is coming from – a sound I’ve never heard out here before. I’m pretty […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #15 – Day 1

(Sunday 30-November-2014) @4:45pm Alright I’m here, and although I won’t be writing a full monolog every day I have to mention that there are no rat-chewed holes in the tent at all this time. It’s also started raining so that’s nice; nothing like the surround-sound patter of rain-drops tapping at the tent fly, and I’ve […]
