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 #38: All that and more!

Spring has sprung, and horny animals can be heard all over the place making very weird noises all night long.

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 #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 #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 […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #12 – Day 3

Today is indeed Sunday, and so it comes as no great surprise I found people on the trail – on my way to get water. A pair of blokes – who were just sitting on the trail close to the creek when I got there and a woman sitting against a tree – reading a book – I didn’t walk past her until the way back though

Rainforest Life: Outing #12 – Day 2

(Saturday 18-October-2014) REPTILIAN MATTERS @12:55pm A few minutes ago now, I made a potentially lizard-killing error in judgement by feeding him a sealed plastic “snap-lock” sandwich bag filled with raw chicken necks. Several times previously I’ve given him fully sealed plastic bags packed full of my own ‘special recipe’ bush-spagetti and he’s always ripped, clawed […]

Rainforest Life: Outing #10 – Day 4

(Left-to-right: …) Uploaded (Tuesday 23-September-2014) @11:10am Alright about to go get me some water. Although I like the walk in general, I dislike the first five-hundred meters – the stretch of scrub that leads to the trail. Not only is it like walking on dry, crunchy noodles it’s so noisy, there’re so many dead trees, […]
