Hello all, I mentioned in my introduction thread that I have more shoes than my wife and since we've been doing a massive resort and cleansing I figured it was a good time to take a pic of all me shoes while they were in one place:



From top left is a nice pair of new no name (military?) steel toe leather boots from the oppy, 7 year old and still my favs Oliver Suede slip ons, new pair of Oliver lace up boots. 2nd row is Steel Blue lace ups from the mines, Red Back hiking boots and Taipan lace ups from the SES. 3rd row is some good ol' Blundstone slip ons, Mack slip ons and my cool blue New Balance. Last row is some new kicks from http://www.solerebels.com/, some old Converse from the oppy and some new old school looking Adidas. (Not shown is a pair of sandals, thongs and fuzzy slippers.)

It is my subconscious desire to never want for shoes again..

That's a lot of boots...

Back in my days at uni, I had to spend 3 weeks in FNQ doing field mapping. I must have walked hundreds of kilometres as I wore through 2 pairs of boots during that time. There were literally holes in the soles...

Nice drive up there. I was heading up there with a couple of blokes for a counter lunch one Saturday and hit an eagle that had been munching on some road-kill. He managed to get off the road and almost out the way. Snapped the radio antenna on my 4WD. Eagle just flew off and 7 years later I've still got a coat hanger as an antenna.

As a wildlife rescuer myself, I have to ask whether someone, anyone, attended to the eagle?

I nearly took a job down there a few years back.
It gets very cold there (by fnq standards) overnight in winter.
Like everywhere once you move off the coast, the skies are clear as a bell with no humidity and it gets COLD. Days are warm still but at evening when you don't have that cloud/humidity blanket keeping the warmth in (hot air rises) and the cold fills the gap. Well technically the cold doesn't fill the gap but when the warmth rises the cold (which is a lack of warmth) is left behind.

No animals were hurt in the making of this documentary. After snapping my antenna, he rolled up the windscreen, along the roof and was flying again before he (or she) even hit the ground. Even if I wanted to administer CPR and a sling as per my annual Saint John's training, the patient just up and left.

I had to rescue a kid from a wedgie back in school... It wasn't a pretty sight and it wasn't easy. Poor thing walked on tippie-toes for a while until he sorted himself out.
