Wow how time flies when your buried in life it seems like years since I wrote on here but it has been but a few weeks.
Wondering where I have been well between giving my partner a hand for 3 weeks in his job which involved traveling to Western Qld to a place called Taroom, writing off a car in a car accident, writing up cemetery tour info and learning ans restructuring our whole society database time has slipped through my fingers
But we have had some amazing adventures and I know I tell my kids to live life to the fullest so when your 40 you will have stories to tell.
Taroom ia an amazing place and the history is interesting there is a huge old tree in the main street that apparently was around when Leichardt was touring Queensland and leaving his mark. The tree originally had Leichardts initials engraved into the trunk but somebody decided to cleanup the old bark on the tree and accidentally removed the initials. Yea I couldn't help myself had to look into the history of the area.
Why your thinking who cares....when you leave Eidsvold and travel the Cracow rias your travelling through some of the most unstable country renowned for earthquakes and what on earth would the early pioneers have thought was happening whilst sleeping round the camp fire and to be suddenly woken by the ground shaking madly beneath them. I would believe first thoughts may be cattle stampede.
Then as you get up toward Cracow there is a dirt road that will take you over to Taeoom and your travelling through dry country with cattle really big cattle wandering around and wild life everywhere. At least you might not starve but it would be so easy to die from lack of water . I will admit as we were traveling over what we call the badlands my mind would wander back 100 years and try and imagine what it was like for our brave explorers.
So I hope we can share more stories I have to write a tale for our journal so I am off till next time happy travels
