At the Silver Wattle Caravan Park

Living Edge Caravan
Back in February I bought a new Living Edge caravan from Kratzmann caravans at Burpengary. I would suggest that people don't buy Living Edge and don't buy from Kratzmann. I have been having an ongoing problem with the water pump, which I have isolated to th...

The Fletch
Fletcher Creek on the Gregory Dev. Road is a popular free camping stop about 30km north of Charters Towers. It has a dump point and showers but no drinkable water. Here are a few photographs of the site on both sides of the road and the creek taken on the 5...

Ravenswood
Went to Ravenswood for a week, and stayed for three weeks. The area around Ravenswood is very dry and one often wonders how anything survives in the place.                                    Ravenswood is full of history, a lot of it in ruins.              ...

Still in Goovigen
I was only going to stay for one night, but the weather is good, the showgrounds are quiet and the pub put up a sign saying silverside and white sauce, vegies and chips for $12 on state of origin night. I just had to stay for that. When I was young, silvers...

Water Pressure
In my van I have a pressure / flow rate regulator valve of the brass variety and the pressure, or should I say the flow rate inside the van has always been very poor, ie. wait for ages to fill a bottle. I had a look on the net for any mention of this proble...

Thornborough, Kingsborough and Mt. Mulligan
On Sunday the 6th I did a day trip to these three localities, localities because most of what was once there is now gone. My main interest was Thornborough, because my paternal great grand mother, Emily DAVIS (nee CHAPPEL) is buried there. Thornborough Ceme...

Mount Morgan
Thursday 9th of July After a good meal and a couple of beers to wash it down and a good helping Queensland pie, came a restful sleep and then an easy trip from Goovigen to Mount Morgan nestled in between a bunch of hills, both natural and man made. I am sta...

Goovigen
Monday 6th July. Have just spent two nights in Monto, camped behind the information kiosk next to the railway yards (long since disused). They charge $5 per person per night, no power or water. You can pay at either the nearest hotel or the newsagent. When ...

Story
Tagline
Fell in love once, only once, when I lived in New Farm
Introduction
A childhood of mango trees,
knee high floods and
pushbikes without helmets in Cairns

Retired and look for dead people in my spare time.

Why look for dead people ?
