Hi All,
With no reasonable alternative, I flew to Cairns rather than 44hrs by Greyhound. Back in warm weather now 30+c and sunny.
Tomorrow I leave on a 16 day 4WD Rainforest camping trip to Cape York.  More Croc's, snakes & spiders!!
I will be without access to phone or internet while up there, so I'm taking this opportunity to login.

Here are a few Photos from The Red center. I expect to return to civilization on Sept 22 with more pics.

Later Allan

Love the pics!
What's on the croc's head (Too Close)and HOW 'Big' is mr. spider? I also love the picture of the group in the crevice of the rock - very nice.
Be careful in Cape York - no Crocodile Hunter stunts, O.K.? Have fun and report back as soon as you can.

hi snakeman
How are you and your new 'squeeze' getting along? Is she allowed in restaurants?
the kitchen reno is 99% complete. I have successfully avoided a toilet installation, but not much longer I think.
I travelled to the penobscot with 4 others last weekend and stayed with the NB inmates in the gravel pit. I even got up the nerve to do the gorge a couple of times, but we spent most of our time at horserace and amberjack.
You were missed around the campfire...some serious beer drinking took place.
..some great shots..looking forward to more pics.

That is some piece of arm candy you have........Wow. Real friendly I bet?!?!!? So you had to cave and get an airline ticket....I shouldn't laugh , but......

It is slowly turning to fall.........a few leaves are starting to get 'ungreen' and a little inflexible around the edges. We do intend to get in the pool again this weekend however. :) (no we don't have a heater!)

The girls started school this past week and we're all still standing. Wahoo.

Keep the updates rollin'

You have some odd friends!
Had a wee serpent in my hotel last wk; then the good souls at the desk advised that 1 had meandered into the front desk, yikes. Needless to say, I was a bit skittish as I returned yesterday. How I hate to faint & worse still in front of a client!
Hope that the RF is A-1 over the 16 days that you wander. Be good to Allan.
Looking frwrd to more words when U resurface.
