Currently looking at how much a van will set me back. No shit.

Along with having my face split open playing basketball a few weeks ago, I also jarred my thumb pretty decently. This means stretching screens by hand is off the cards. Although, to be frank, it’s a hard, shit job to tackle as well a rough approach that doesn’t always work well. Today I tried remedying that problem with pretty good results. I used an old pallet and about $20 worth of hardware to put this hand made stretcher together. Now I can finally fix all of the screens that need repairing!

I feel like Tom Hanks did in Castaway when he makes fire.

I’ve been toying with a similar concept for a little while, but to see it executed it so rad! If I have the time and funds post-PhD I’d love to build something similar.

Increasingly good weather is making me excited for some awesome upcoming spring/summer adventures!

Disappeared midweek to a regional city about 3 hours north west of where I live to recharge batteries. It’s been a pretty brutal and busy few months, and I needed to switch off for a few days. Still came home to a ridiculous amount of emails and jobs to chase up, but it sure as shit could be worse.

One elbow, five stitches and plenty of blood. This is how my last 12 hours has looked, right when I thought I couldn’t possibly get any busier.

Went bush again this weekend looking for this rarely visited waterfall. It was hard to get to, but it was well worth the steepness, mud and the leeches.
