Well, Jackis is in bali for a week so Sean and I figured we should head out and do some 4wheeling and find a nice spot to camp and have a few drinks. the day started off with a good run in the sand dunes, with the Paj impressing me with its ability to go anywhere I pointed it. (tires at 14psi) then after about 2 hours of playing in the dunes we rocked up to our camp site about 40km north through some 4wd tracks and found a sheltered area in the otherside of the main dune out of the wind. great night, great food, amazing sunset. ... read more

A workmate took me and a few guys out fishing today. started at 6am with loading the boat up and heading out to a few small islands about 30km south of rotto. was a stunning day weather wise, fishing wise... not so much. caught a decent share of fish but nothing big enough to keep. also caught 2 squid, which I took home and fried up, they were delicious. A huge thanks to Wazza for inviting me!!... read more

Work has been going great here in perth, Jackie is cleaning houses and I am welding for razorback constuction. I guess I can add a few more recent updates about work as they are going to sponsor me to stay and work in australia for a longer period of time so we can continue to travel without having to fly home to work 3 months in the cold. its win win for both of us. included are a few photos of the work I have been doing. custom caging for loaders and air tight rescue chambers for underground mines. ... read more

Well... its been a while since I blogged about anything exciting since we have been working and jsut mostly relaxing on sat/sun or drinking... one or the other. its all good. but this sunday I had a day to myself and met up with the perth 4x4 club. we went out to the powerline track and had an absolute blast out there. a very friendly group of peeps with some amazing vehicles. The track was a good drive. that pajero sure impressed me with how far I could push it. had a few close calls. nothing to bad. a little slip on 1 climb had me sliding backwards on frame while wheels were still trying for traction. the other was a steep climb with about a 3-4 foot exit height of steep sand that would of ... read more
