Being at Uluru

Yesterday whilst I was walking around Uluru and observing the other people, some climbing, some walking. I asked the ancestral spirits for permission to climb the rock, I wanted to be respectful of their customs as the big sign was saying they don’t want people climbing the rock and they had fears of people falling.… Continue reading

Travelling to Uluru

I stayed overnight at the roadhouse/caravan park just before the turnoff to Uluru. Met up with a guy called David who told me he was from Adelaide. Had just been to the rock and had a few weeks holiday with his wife and child Amber. He told me he had traveled all over Africa for… Continue reading

Leaving Alice Springs Feeling the Love

Well I had an amazing night with Nicki and told her about my philosophy peppering in the economic language that we are all accustomed to define our reality. We spoke of the consciousness of the planet. This from my perspective is the only way we will turn things around. In the current way of thinking… Continue reading

West MacDonnell Ranges: Peace in Ormiston Gorge

Got up at 9am and had a call from Keith asking if I would like some pancakes. I explained I was waiting for Chris to come and I would follow him to Keith’s place. Keith lives 15 km out of Alice Springs.

I had a really nice breakfast with Nicki and we talked about friends… Continue reading

Mount Isa to Tennant Creek Northern Territory

Today I drove 660.3km to Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory.

I left Mount Isa at 8.30am. I settled into driving, had the music on and just followed the road. I don’t really need the GPS, as there is one road and it is straight. The beauty of having an inverter is I can recharge… Continue reading

Enlightening the Road of My Life

The tent is my cathedral,
My bed and my desk my possessions,
Setting the stage for lifes precession
outdoors,
for I can feel the air,
I can shiver with the cold,
I can sweat with the heat,
And listen to the insects crawl,
For this is the Australian crawl,
That can never lose.

I hammer… Continue reading

Ilfracombe to Winton Outback Queensland

I drove 278 km’s today. I drove through such flat country yet changing every 10km. Really spectacular country. I arrived in Winton and went to the Information Centre. I saw Banjo Patterson’s statue and the words of Waltzing Matilda. This is a song that many Australian’s of my generation and older equate as the real… Continue reading

Charleville to Ilfracombe Outback Queensland

Today is Thursday 11th August. I awoke to a motorcycle warming up. I found this at another caravan park, they warm their bikes. They are not thinking of the rumble affecting all the sleeping campers. I have to laugh. I used to ride a bike, I know why they warm up, but they can take… Continue reading

7 August, Mitchell to Charleville – Outback Queensland

The last 24 hours have been very interesting.

I decided to go to the camp fire at the caravan park last night. A few people were still there at 8.30pm. I sat next to a couple from Norway and Finland (husband and wife). We talked about our lives. They told me they had a friend… Continue reading
