Outing #13 – Day 1

Last minute rushing to get shit stuffed in the pack and start heading out. Fortunately today, I missed the old Finnish dood so I got out without any lengthy

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #13 – Pre

(Wednesday 29-October-2014) Alright so this week I’ve got myself a minor upgrade to my wildlife-loving toolbox: a small, relatively inexpensive compact digital camera: a Nikon Coolpix 6800 with 12x optical zoom and wifi connectivity. Anybody who is even slightly tech-savvy will understand why switching to an actual camera is an upgrade over the one on […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #12: Day 11

(Monday 27-October-2014) @3:56pm Been a pretty slow day today. Not only for animals, but for myself since I’m running out of everything. I’ve got probably four coffees left, and because I’ve just run out of milk powder, the last few coffees are going to be black. I’m almost completely out of tobacco so I’ve started […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #12 – Day 10

(Sunday 26-October-2014) @1:38pm Another day, another hundred insect bites. So there’s been no sign of the Lace Monitor thus far today. I’m not particularly bothered though, since I’ve got somewhat more important things to do besides watch him for a change today. There’s regular pasta out there for whoever wants it, and if he doesn’t […]

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 […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #12 – Day 8

(Friday 24-October-2014) @10:38am So it’s a bit of a slow day today,  partly because I want to wait for the Monitor to make his daily appearance – so I can observe his general level of well-being – and partly because food, coffee and – well all my supplies really – are running low. I may […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #12 – Day 7

(Thursday 23-October-2014) @10:53am Today – since it’s a sunny once again – the plan is to tip the pasta on the ground, then wait for him to visit. That’s it. That’s all the plans for the day. Since I saw him yesterday I expect he’ll be dropping-in today at some point. MONITOR MATTERS: THE REUNION […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #12 – Day 6

(Wednesday 22-October-2014) @11:34am Lovely day in the park today; sunny with a top of 21°C and a cool breeze. I have to refill my water today of course, so I’m thankful the rain has cleared just as my water bladders and bottles are running low: walking there and back in the pissing rain would suck. […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #12 – Day 5

(Tuesday 21-October-2014) @9:42am Another cold wet day today. One rainy day’s great to cool the place down, but it really doesn’t take long to get sick of it. It’s spitting right now, heavy enough so I can’t even go off and have my morning shit until it’s eased a bit. Yeah, I wasn’t too sure […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #12 – Day 4

(Monday 20-October-2014) @11:52am Grey and cloudy in the national park this morning. The air is cool bordering cold and the skies look set to open any moment now. The Currawong have begun circling the camp – no doubt for the uneaten bread I left out for the Possum and Bush Rat last night – so […]
