May 6, 2014 - Gawler
Monday 5th May We left Pinnaroo today at 9.30am, saying our goodbys to Janet. We headed off through Tailem Bend, then on to Mannum where we had to take the vehicle ferry across the river. We then headed into the rain and the hills around Mount Pleasant, and on to Gawler where we are booked in to the caravan park for two days. We arrived just after 2pm, unhooked the caravan. We headed off towards Adelaide, where we are going to see my Aunty Jess. We got to her place in Beaumont (which is in the foothills of Adelaide) at 3.10pm, had a great...Jump to full entry

We left Adelaide Shores Caravan Park and headed to Gawler to catch up with Steph's rellies. After a quick phone call to Angela and Darrin yesterday, where Ang had insisted that we stay with them for the night. John & Coral, the parents, were also staying there, as John had a an eye operation in Adelaide. As Darrin had to go to Mildura with work, we only just got to say Hi before he left.

Jun 3, 2012 - A night behind bars.............................
Kilometer count so far - 3,344 (Gawler) This week I have cycled through some spectacular hills and farming country - that is the good news. The bad news is that EVERY day there has been a steady 20KM headwind. It is just like pedalling for 6 hours each day with the brakes on......... Seriously, it is a pleasure to be cycling through rolling farmland and quirky little communities, after the barren plains 1,000 KM before Port Augusta. Winter however is clearly approaching, especially the further south I get - it was 3 degrees this morning. As...Jump to full entry
Apr 23, 2011 - Permaculture Design Course - @ the Food Forest S.A
Two days into this amazing course.. i have so much im eager to share but my own energy supply is limited! :) Days full of learning and interacting In short... we realize this beautiful planet is struggling to supply the resourses we currently use to fuel our over consuming societies. Supply vs Demand. plus neg affects of current un renewable energy It can be a confronting reality, how does a society set in its ways adapt to what seems like an drastic change in lifestyle, when our current "needs" may no longer be met, as lack of resourse...Jump to full entry
Apr 23, 2011 - why i am doing what im doing...
Many people have asked what my motives for this trip are, and my interest in permaculture and sustainable living.. So here!.. i wrote this a few weeks before leaving Sydney, sums it up nicely :) Captive born We have become prisoners in our own captivity. Like all captive animals, once removed from a natural environment and lifestyle for too long a period, they forget how to fend for themselves. Vulnerable and if given the chance, would consume all that is so easily presented. A captive animal can not survive the reality of its natural...Jump to full entry
