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 Journals: Outing 17 – Day 2

Sunday, 28th December 2014 4:03 PM 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. 6:51 PM Beautiful drizzly day. Right up until about 2:00 PM there was […]

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 […]

(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 […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #16 – Day 4

(Wednesday 17-December-2014) @~11:00pm Today was spent reading for the most part – since there was no water needed getting, pausing occasionally to stun the odd filthy fly that was stupid enough to venture into the tent. Rather than feed them to the Ants, though, I now prefer to stick em in the fly-paper I have […]

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 […]
