I would've put up some photos of The Diamond Hunter's Sheep Sheering experiences but he appears to have (wisely?) locked his camera from me lifting photos. Not sure how he did that.
Flinders Station. The station to upstage all stations. 100 years and counting. You haven't been to Melbourne if you haven't been to Flinders Station... well, don't I just sound like a 1950s Jazz Croooner...
Now for the photos.
Now for the photos.
Champs gets closer & closer to the Aussie outback. Blue Gums, 37 degrees, & dirty water! Now lets find me a croc....
Kookabura sitting in some old tree. La la laa ddee. Cookoboura. Kokakabura. Bugger it. Big fat Aussie bird. Parking off In a tree. That Aussie blokes with banjos like to sing about...
And Talking about singing... Busking. Anywhere anytime... The new plan is that I'm gonna be his back-up singer if this job thing still doesn't materialise... Dooopp Doooopp Peee Dooooo
4x4'ing. Bluddy fkcing hell. Have you been 4x4'ing. The mission IS to get stuck in the mud!
Then the 4x4'ing got scary. Spooky woods... with freaky things carved onto them...and blood (or tree gum, whatever) dripping from them.
Serene camping view one way....Aaaaaahhhhhhhh
Parking lot view the other way.....
Winnipago Conference 2009 hits the camping world, and we got to fall asleep under the stars to the whirling of someone's onboard toilet!
Can you see who this is!? Hey hey! Are you jealous yet! I'll give you a clue... "Can't find a better maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.........."
"Will you damn rock mob get the hell out of here already!!!!'
Etihad Stadium just could not get rid of us. 2 1/2 hours later. Ben Harper on one guitar, Eddie on the other... The lights came on but the boozed rockers kept singing.
Back to some Flinders shots... This time "with Tram" YEHAYEHAEH. Man, this shot would've been better in focus.
"Meet you under the clocks" or some other cheesiness. Clocks of departing train lines. Very important. Very bluddy stressful. You still have to get through the ticket things & a thousand people, across a station, down useless escalators and onto your platform.... Renaming this shot: "Champs' Fitness Regime"
Merry Merry Christmas from Melbourne!
