Nicholas Downs

June 9, 2010

Here’s a few pics I took this week on a supply run out to a place called Nicholas Downs. It’s a mine operated by PMI on the Balfour Downs cattle station north east of Newman.

Talawana Track

Talawana Track, goes east to....well, it goes east.


I shot some video on the way out there and will put up another post with more detail and possibly some of that video – when I’ve had time to put it all together.

Diversions Pt 2

April 4, 2010

Here it is : the embedded video of the footage I shot driving through Meekatharra. I have cut out a few minutes in the middle (where I was refuelling the truck) and trimmed the start and finish, otherwise, that’s it.

When time allows I will try to post a more professional looking clip with titles and using some other footage I have. At the moment though, time is a scarce commodity.

As Pretty As A Bride

March 1, 2010

Just had to post this pic I took a month or two ago using my iPhone. It was early morning not too far north of Meekatharra. I really wish I’d had my DSLR with me but it was one of those times when I had no intention of looking for shots-it was just there so I snapped it with what I had to hand.

The “Oh No” Light

February 27, 2010

This is the indicator light you don’t want to see in your mirror as you’re driving down the road towing a fridge/freezer trailer.
Basically : green means go / orange means get ready to stop (or “Oh no”) / flashing between the two or red means you’d better hope your destination isn’t too far up the road ‘cos your fridge has shut down and you’re in the shit!

Dusting Off The Cobwebs

February 25, 2010

Thought I’d better show some TLC towards my blog. It’s not that I’d forgotten about it – it’s just that I haven’t been able to find the time! So, to break the dry spell, I thought I would chuck a quick picture or two up here.
Swapping Trailers

First pic is me in the process of dropping one empty trailer before hooking onto my remaining two loaded trailers prior to unloading them at the Packsaddle Camp, Area C minesite.
Pub!

Second pic was taken in the main street of Meekatharra, Western Australia. I was heading north on a hot afternoon and saw the Pub in the distance and almost chucked it in for the day 😉
