Congrats, Sandgroper! Your gold hunts amaze me. Nice haul!

Oh, lovely sunrise, too! To me, ones like that are such a beautiful display of God's creation. Great photo!

I watched a couple episodes of the Aussies as well and it seemed like there were little buggers everywhere and HOT!
Thanks! No biting flies this time, but there were plenty of the regular annoying ones. The mosquitoes weren't too bad either, we had a couple in the morning and in the evening, but definitely not as bad as during our last trip.

Thank you! Those bush rises are beautiful, and it's so peaceful out there as well. The nearest town is over 200km away, so it's nice and quiet out there.
