Re: Goin' Up The Country

Long time no see, sportsfans. I went to pay another week's rent at the Norwesta caravan park in Carnarvon at 08:00 on Monday, September 17th, but the office doesn't open until 09:00, so I went back to the van to wait and then came back as soon as the door was opoen and Michelle told me she'd booked ...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

Thursday, September 13th, 2018. Still in Carnarvon for the time being. It makes sense to stick around here for a few more weeks yet. Nothing much to report lately. Just passing the days, sorting through files on the computer. The Music Collection is now reorganised nicely. This is what useful work c...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018. This morning just before 8am I returned the key to the amenity at the Billabong Roadhouse and said goodbye to Jacque the manager; a really decent and friendly bloke, I'd say. Always made me feel welcome for the whole week I stayed there, for free, using their water -...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

Day Five here at The Billabong Roadhouse on Sunday the 2nd of September. Not much to report. I have not driven the van a single millimetre since Wednesday afternoon at 1pm. I have just been starting the engine around four times each day for around thirty(30) minutes at a time to recharge the batteri...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

Update, August 31st, 2018. It is the last day of Winter today. Winter brings with it rainy days, and on Tuesday it rained at Elbenjo, and the dustbowl turned to a mudbowl. I stayed one more night to finish trading all Kerry's movies with the best of mine, to fill up her external USB hard disk, and t...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

Just a quick update. Today I have moved around 20km west from Northampton Caravan Park and the wonderful Graham and Yani who run the place, and followed Kerry to a very remote little farmstay type of place called Elbenjo, which is named after their son, 'El', the lady, 'Benny', and the grentleman, &...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

It's Saturday and I'm HAPPY! The weather is fantastic here in Northampton, the people are absolutely wonderful and I have been doing a little bit of carpentry this week. I still have not gotten around to photoshopping all the photos I've been taking of the town and all the surrounding landmarks, but...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

I have never been this far north in Western Australia before. There are different birds in the trees up here, even. Why I kid you not I just heard a bird up in a tree outside that sounded just like a duck. It was quacking like a duck! Ducks don't land in trees though. They land on water or on the gr...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

PS: Even the Wi-Fi here works, unlike the last place where it was very slow to the point of not worth using. I am using it now, and it is just fine. Quick as one would expect in the city.
