‘On The Road Again’…Birdsville Big Red Bash!

Tomorrow we head off to Birdsville, Qld to the Big Red Bash! Jeda is looking forward to it too!! Only concert in Australia she can attend (I think?)  Feels like it’s taken AGES to come around. Have a few stops along the way as don’t have to be there till 3rd-5th July.

Going to Peterborough for a look, then to Willow Springs Station in the Flinders Ranges  for a re-visit (worked there in 2013), then on to Farina Station  (they have an underground bakery) and up to Marree and the Birdsville Track.

B has volunteered for set up and pack down duties before and after the Bash, so we can stay around 2 weeks all up.  Then might check out the Boulia Camel Races. After that ?????

Will post when I can. Looking forward to getting on the road again after 13 years full time. Love our block, but it’s also good to get out and about again!

See you on the road…..

Winter on Da Block

Well, it’s well and truly winter time in the Clare Valley!! No frost just yet but plenty of cold icy winds and some rain. The newborn lambs are bleating around the district which is a lovely sight. The paddocks are all green, the weeds/grasses profuse and the workload still constant!

B has been busy weekdays with some casual work so weekends are all go getting things done around Da Block. We are heading off to the Big Red Bash near Birdsville in a weeks time so the countdown is on! Looking forward to this outback concert – another Bucket List item nearly ticked!

We have put in another rainwater tank to take advantage of the winter rainfall. We’ve had a few bonfires, watched things in the garden flower, mulched the rock garden and watched grass grow madly through it!! 😦 And given our caravan diesel heater a work out on these cold nights (and some days!)

This will be my last post for a while whilst we are ‘on the road’ – heading to Western & Central Queensland then might get the tinny wet on the east coast?! Till next time…..
