As Dry as a Dead Dingo’s Donga

We are off into the Australian Outback tomorrow, in fact it will be a journey of epic proportions through some of Australia’s most remote desert country.

You can read some more about our trip by clicking here.

But hey, no need to fret if you don’t spot me around your blog for a couple of weeks or so I haven’t given you the flick or anything like that, after all what else would I do during the daily commute at 6:30am in the morning if it wasn’t for your blog?

 Crikey, where else could you read about a woman in a bikini or get a fill of skinny pirates or hear  some bent woman using a very naughty word hell I love it when she talks like that as she was sweating it out.

Okay, and don’t go thinking you’re not a favourite either just ‘cause you didn’t get a mention, strewth you’re a fickle lot today, aren’t you!

I just won’t be in range for the normal communication devices to work! You know, those techo gadgets, iPhones and WiFi thingy’s…

Although, you will be able to keep tabs on me.

Yeah, that perked you back up a bit didn’t it, I can see you’re excited about that prospect… 😉

If you get a chance make sure you take a bloody look at the blog posts I have scheduled each day and by clicking The Landy link in it you’ll  see a map that shows just where we are “lost” in this Sunburnt Country of ours…

How cool is that!

Every so often I’m hoping to be able to share some of the magnificent landscapes I capture on my trusty Nikon 600 Camera, so keep an eye out for that!

I will actually be doing some running while I’m crossing the desert to prepare for the 100-kilometre running race I am lining up for this September. Yeah I’m hearing you– talk about dumb ideas spawned out the bottom of an empty beer bottle, but if you’re in need of a bit of a giggle just click here.

Rest assured the desert country will be as “dry as a dead-dingo’s donga” so you know what that means – a couple of beers a day to quench that thirst. Strewth, you wouldn’t be dead for quids!

Hey, take care, and  I can see it is no use telling you to be good, and remember the motto I live by… if all else fails, just remain out of control and see what develops!

    Have a great trip guys. You know what Baz, behind every great man is a greater woman. So Janet, let me know how it goes. Ayers Rock is our next destination – are you passing through there or bypassing? Enjoy.

      Hi Erica

      Passing close by, but not close enough to visit…

      And Janet, yes she is an absolute Angel, but Shoosh, mum’s the word! 😉

    Baz! Sounds like you get your fill every morning from bikinis, naughty words and Skinny Pirates! I always knew you were my kind of fella! Thanks for the shout out, my friend! Have a great trip and very safe travels. Can’t wait to read (and see photos) all about it. As you are quenching your thirst with beer, you know I’ll be hanging with Ted on the porch (or somewhere on a tour bus) sipping on Skinny Pirates. Cheers!

    We’re rooting for you in the 100 kilometer race this September!

    Stay hydrated. Perhaps with something other than beer, on occasion. 🙂
    Have fun! Can’t wait to see the latest pics and hear the latest stories. Watch out for those mangy dingos!

      Oh don’t worry, water is my drink of preference, beer, well I’m a two pot screamer… Cheers, Baz
