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.

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

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 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 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 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 Journal: Outing #17 – Day 2

(Sunday // 28-December-2014) @4:03pm The Currawong have been and gone, but today she brought one of the fledglings with her. The young bird squawked-out the usual tantrum as the parent bird flew back and forwards to fill its yappy beak. @6:51pm Beautiful drizzly day. Right up until about 2:00pm there was a heavily overcast sky […]

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 […]
