Our land is girt by sea

Middle of nowhere is a stone’s throw away from where me and the boys are right now, as we’re being ferried across 120km of dusty roads to the Shoalwater Bay Training Area in Queensland.

We’ll be unloading our gear in a bit, sit and be briefed on a dozen things we have to do today, before collecting our bedding and other essentials, and given a coupla hours to nap before taking over some more stores.

More of the same tomorrow as the rest of the battalion arrives on the later flight.

iTunes is playing an illegal copy of Waltzing Matilda from the album “West of Winton” by Slim Dusty of which I have the original CD.
