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 ...

Re: Goin' Up The Country

Not a great deal to report for this weekend. It is Sunday the 5th of August, just after 4pm. Yesterday I ran a 140km round trip to purchase eight(8) mild-steel door hinges and two packets of 25 of 10g x 25mm countersunk self-tappers to renovate the doors on the wardrobe which has become my bedbase a...

Goin' Up The Country

Here is a log of my trip north from Perth, beginning on Wednesday, August 1st, 2018. I don't know where I'm going, but there is still another month of Winter to go, and it is cold and rainy, even stormy down in Perth now, just as it is cold and rainy up here in Warradarge' where I found myself on We...
