    Well just saw my rifles and such sent off and now back in the terminal awaiting my flight to brisbane then onto Cairns ( 1 hr to brisbane and then 2 1/2 hrs to Cairns)

    about 10 tomorrow morning i start a 600 + mile cross country excursion with a gallon water bag my flinter some tools and a swag

    gotta average about 80 miles a day and i'll be taking a detour in the middle to help a mate who's coming with me

    we are the two oldest contestants but in the betting stakes we are almost even favourites ( damn , no money on betting on myself!!!! )

    i'm gonna get some of this expensive airport hooch , get a bite ( the wood fired pizza smells great over yonder ) and wait for the plane ..

    Jack, do well. Be as safe as you can. Blessings on you. Be praying for you.

    Psalm 18
    31 For who is God, but the Lord?
    And who is a rock, except our God?—
    32 the God who equipped me with strength
    and made my way blameless.
    33 He made my feet like the feet of a deer
    and set me secure on the heights.

    34 He trains my hands for war,
    so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
    35 You have given me the shield of your salvation,
    and your right hand supported me,
    and your gentleness made me great.
    36 You gave a wide place for my steps under me,
    and my feet did not slip.
    37 I pursued my enemies and overtook them,
    and did not turn back till they were consumed.
    38 I thrust them through, so that they were not able to rise;
    they fell under my feet.
    39 For you equipped me with strength for the battle;
    you made those who rise against me sink under me.
    40 You made my enemies turn their backs to me,[e]
    and those who hated me I destroyed.

    Hmmmm, betting on the favorite....well I used to bet on almost anything years back, we'd even bet on coin flips, not now.

    Have a good time wherever you go. ;)
