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.

Re: Goin' Up The Country

Friday, August 10th, 2018. I moved to a powered site for last night for an extra $5. I moved to a site across the road from the toilets and camp kitchen, and it was worth the extra $5 to have power and water and be close to the amenities. I got up at 04:45 again this morning, took a shower, dressed ...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

It would be nice to know what it actually happens to be, because I am not sure whether it might be poisonous or not, nor whether it would be something that likes to bite sleeping men on the fact and give them tetanus, which I have already had once, and do not want to have to suffer again. This is wr...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

I removed a whole lot of stuff out of the back, and then went through all the spare plastic shopping bags, and found nothing, and now there is no noise coming from the back of the van, as if something little is running around in there, but that does not mean that it has gone, because I never found w...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

It's Thursday, August 9th. A lot has happened this morning since 6am. A lot of miles to say the least. After having put up with the animals, Steve & Nell parking across my half-raked leaf pile yesterday, practically ruining another day's work for me after having ruined my laundry day on Sunday, ...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

Big Steve & Little Nell woke me up at 06:00 this morning. Ray told me he was coming back from the shearing today, and I promised to have the sheets in bleach out of the washing-machine by 08:00. Last night was very, very cold, with the new clean sheets, which was why I thought it was so cold it ...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

Glad I am not 6'6". I can just crawl over the desk and music keyboard between the seats into the cab and start the motor to warm the place up without needing to open any doors to get from the back to the front or front back to the back again. One of the benefits of being a midget.

Re: Goin' Up The Country

Oh, I am starting to use masking tape and alfoil to block up all the holes in the van, including the chimney top in the roof, which has been blowing ice-cold air straight into the van all night until I thought to block it last night. It was still freezing outside the doona cover, but today has been ...
