The Rainforest Journal: Outing #19 – Day 6 & 7

(Wednesday 28-January-2015) Day 6 It irks me a little that I’ve a gap between Day 2 and this post, but what can you do? I have some photos from these days but owing to the bad weather they were pretty uneventful as concerns animals Anyway. IT NEVER RAINS, ONLY POURS. The rain has not stopped […]

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 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 6-7

The last two nights have been pretty hectic, with Possums climbing the tent, hissing at one another and much grunting about the place.   Day 6 (Saturday 17-January-2015) THE FOUR REGULARS ARE FINE As I mentioned in a previous post Bobby and Guido are still being their pushy, obnoxious selves: standing over the food, intimidating […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #18 – Day 5

(Friday 16-January-2015) MONITOR MISCHIEF As usual this morning I start the day trying my best to sleep-in as late as possible, but – Thanks to my bladder – only manage to do so until around 10am. I sit up to unzip the tent and am surprised to see Junior sitting right outside the door, completely […]

The Rainforest Journal: Outing #18 – Day 4

Thursday, 15th January 2015 Juniors cheese-binge. Is a bit of a shorter post today because merging all the naughty lizard events of today (Friday) with this post from yesterdays happenings would be a headache. With another average night for Possums last night, I wake up this morning and – having dragged myself through the usual […]

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 #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 Journals: Outing #17 – Days 8 & 9

Featured Image Sunday 4th 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 […]
