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 #15 – Prep

You know although I kind’ve miss that whole “having a home and fixed address” thing, sitting outside now typing this I realize there’s one thing that the multitude of hostels and backpackers offer in abundance that’s nigh impossible to get in a typical suburban house; space. So much space. Even though there are a plethora […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #14 – Day 9

(Sunday 23-November-2014) @9:02am Owing to the 35°C day we have on the way, I’ve decided to spend the day at the creek. A cool stream of air drifts down through the rainforest there, like natural air-conditioning. I have to get water anyway, but rather than walking back I’ll just pull-up a price of dirt in […]

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 #14 – Day 6

(Thursday 20-November-2014) bore·dom \ˈbȯr-dəm\ noun:the state of being weary and restless through lack of interest . @2:52pm I’ve been in the same spot since August, so how could it possibly not become boring after such a long period. I know exactly how long it will take to walk down here, how often I’ll need to […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #14 – Day 4

(Tuesday 18-November-2014) @9:02pm Alright there’s a mosquito right next to me squealing around, and what sounds like a Kangaroo crashing its way around the place about twenty meters away and an occasional loud bashing of wood which I assume is also the Kangaroo though what it’s doing I have no idea. The mosquitoes and flies […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #14 – Day 3

(Monday 17-November-2014) @11:52am I’m back from getting my water. Nice to do it *before* the hottest time of the day for a change. Of course I took some typically uninspired photos along the way and had the thought that I should really lift my compositional game. At least for the featured image each day, I […]
