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.

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 […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #14 – Day 7

(Friday 21-November-2014) @8:15pm Todays entry will be a short one but I figure while the sweat isn’t stinging my eyes and before the Rats start running under and chewing my tent floor like some fucking Alfred Hitchcock movie, I should post something; how else will I remember how god-damn hot, bug-riddled and miserable the place […]

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 #12 – Day 9

(Saturday 25-October-2014) MONITOR MATTERS @10:34am Lizard-man is outside eating the potato pasta I saved for him, though he doesn’t seem so keen for this creamy pasta as he is for the regular stuff. I’m sure like most too, how ‘keen’ he is relates directly to how hungry he is and after a kilogram of chicken […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #12 – Day 3

(Sunday 19-October-2014)   THE SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 3 @10:27am It had to happen sooner or later. A serenade of prose for what is – hands down – the most intelligent device I’ve ever held. The smartest smartphone I’ve ever picked-up. If you don’t wish to read about such boring shit, the jungle-life stuff begins just […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #12 – Day 2

(Saturday 18-October-2014) REPTILIAN MATTERS @12:55pm A few minutes ago now, I made a potentially lizard-killing error in judgement by feeding him a sealed plastic “snap-lock” sandwich bag filled with raw chicken necks. Several times previously I’ve given him fully sealed plastic bags packed full of my own ‘special recipe’ bush-spagetti and he’s always ripped, clawed […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #10 – Day 4

(Left-to-right: …) Uploaded (Tuesday 23-September-2014) @11:10am Alright about to go get me some water. Although I like the walk in general, I dislike the first five-hundred meters – the stretch of scrub that leads to the trail. Not only is it like walking on dry, crunchy noodles it’s so noisy, there’re so many dead trees, […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #10 – Day 2

(Left-to-right: Adult male Lyrebird, Fence Skink, Common Brush-tailed Possum, Pied Currawong) Uploaded (Sunday 21-September-2014) @12:14pm Unbelievable how well you sleep out here. It’s like some kind of natural sedative: the Sun sets, you eat, lay down and before you know it your eyes start getting heavier each hour that passes. Next thing, you start dropping […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #9 – Day 10

(Sunday 14-September-2014) @10:57am Alrighty, we’re all done with morning matters, and are about to head out, deeeeeeper into the valley, than ever before. Got my satellite beacon, phone, GPSr and in my backpack, two bottles: one half full of tepid, room-temperature “iced” coffee, the other half full of that orange flavoured powder stuff. Nothing but […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #9 – Day 8

(Friday 12-September-2014) @11:14am So I’ve been waiting to find out whether the weather will provide my water, or I have to walk for it. I’ve had my morning munch of Geebungs, done the now routine morning stuff and readjusted my tarp from “battened-down” to “open” for water collection, but in spite of the clouds covering […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #9 – Day 5

(Tuesday 9-September-2014) @10:06am Still haven’t quite finished Day 4’s entry. Just bear with me now. Okay. Normally, I upload the days diary a day late for several reasons: Firstly, the day isn’t really over until I’ve gone to sleep that night, and since nocturnal animals or other things can happen once I’m lying in bed, […]
