Muaaahaha! Tens of thousands of acres to play with.

RoseDownsWabbit is looking after this cattle station for the next couple of weeks. This is just the driveway  and it’s 20km long. If the rains come it’s a matter of calling for a chopper in order to get out, something I’d prefer not to happen.

    You don’t want it to rain or you don’t want to get out or you don’t like choppers ?

      Is there still cattle alive after the nice warm and dry weather you had down under ?

      Want rain, but not right now.
      Don’t like choppers.
      Don’t want to waste the owner’s money on one.

    Elbow room!

      Aye. :grin: It gets harder and harder to cope with even small towns, Os.

        I live in big city, Seattle – and these people are sorry bunch of Obama loving Leftist trash… :twisted:

        THE SEATTLE SOVIET that “strangely” has construction projects going up all over town in the middle of the Great Recession. I say “strangely” because it’s not strange at all – Commie cities with Big Labor Unions are well taken care by Comrade Obama, who knows such places are always good for millions (or billions?) in Democommie presidential campaign funds.

        So I ignore them unless it’s really necessary to say a few words, like at a store.

        And so far they ignore me – except for the army of bums looking for handouts.

        Interesting that all the big cities on the West coast (Left coast) are solid Democommie, but have hordes of unwashed homeless.

          Ronbo, you know it’s really cold when Democrats have their hands in their own pockets.

            • Ronbo says:


              I think your remark about sums up the Democommie Party, which, btw, got something like 80% of the overall vote in last November’s presidential election, and 100% of the bum vote.

              This is why when I’m feeling nasty and the parasites ask me for money, I respond: “Hey, Bro, how’s that hope and change working for you?” :mrgreen:

    “Give me land, lots of land under starry skies…Don’t fence me in!”

    You think America has lots of wide open spaces in places like Texas or Alaska, but then there is Australia, a country about the same size with only 10% of our population, and most of that concentrated in cities like Melbourne.

    So if you like plenty of elbow room, Australia is the place to go!!!

    Hell of a long way to the shops when you run low on smokes and strong drink KG.

  5. KG says:

    That’s why the esky is crammed with smokes and strong drink, Mara. ;-)
    Not many visits, period Ronbo. Which is just fine.

      I envy you, soldier!

      As I told you before, in 1970 when my first enlistment with the U.S. Army had nearly ended, I was thinking about my next move…Re-up, or go out into the big wide world on my own.

      I was stationed at Arlington Hall Station, just across the bridge from Washington, D.C. – and because I heard good things about Australia from a buddy of mine who was stationed in Brisbane for two years as part of a long forgotten Military Intelligence mission with the Aussie Army – I took myself over to the Australian embassy to talk about immigration to Oz.

      As white Anglo-Saxon Yank defectors were quite popular in that era of more rational Australian immigration policy, the folks at the embassy were quite eager to sign me up and even offered me free transportation to Down Under if I were serious about Australian citizenship.

      So I took the forms back to my barracks at Arlington Hall and filled them all out. Then I made a big mistake. I called my mother and told her about my travel plans. Of course, mom went all emotional on me with things like, “I’ll never see you again! Australia is at the end of the earth! You’ll go there and marry an Australian girl and never come home again.”

      About a week later I signed up for another four years and shipped out to Augsburg, Germany and the Cold War in a cold country.

      Such is life.

        Mine was the mirror image of yours, Ronbo. After an exercise with the 82nd in Louisiana I was so taken with the place I wanted to stay.
        But there was this girl…….
        Worst mistake of my life, and I’ve made a few.
