The routine at the Gore Remote Site Camp is established now and we’ve come to know the likes and dislikes of most of the crew. They’re not big breakfast eaters and they don’t take huge lunches, but they all have a hearty appetite by 6:30 pm dinner time. We had a great time over the […]
We’re settling into a nice routine at Disney station. We’ve met all the terrific people that own and run the farm. They’re all helpful and keen to share information about the property they are all obviously proud of. The youngest farmhand is Bailey whose just six weeks old.

Back To Queensland From South Australia The drive back to Queensland from South Australia involved yet more decisions. In all the heartbreak and disappointment, it was still enjoyable and inspiring to travel the endless hours talking non-stop with Kerrie. I can’t remember us having a single argument even when the pressure to give it all […]
