Outing #39: You there! Koala Bear!

Loud, random belching noises from very near the tent every night finally conclude, in what I’m told is a very rare sighting down there now: a genuine wild Koala Bear.

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 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 #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 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 #16 – Day 8

Bob the Possum goes ape-shit at some she-possums, a baby girl possum and a shy Echidna.

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.
