  • Trimming the hedgerow

    An 8 day, 1800Km solo trek through the Wheatbelt and Western Goldfields.

    Some exciting news to hand:

    My first article on geotouring will be published in WA's premier 4wd magazine: Western 4W Driver, issue #113. Published in December. Go grab yourself a copy.

    And come on down to the Perth 4WD and Adventure show where I take the stage at the fourbie forum at 1130am on both the Saturday and Sunday where I will discuss finding treasure in the bush. If you pass by, come say g'day.

    Here's the first instalment of the trip:

    Trimming hedgerow !

    Sorry mate but would you do a video your presentation please, 11.30pm is way past bedtime in my senior years !!

    Assume you would be on at 11.30AM . Damn typo's

    Well done on the publishing gig and great video too.

    Cheers, Peter

      I thought the title 'Trimming the Hedgerow' was a family friendly way of mentioning that you'd had a Brazilian

        ooops, I work daily with 24 hour time, but it confuses most people so I revert back to a 12hr clock for the masses. Obviously, the 12 hr clock confuses me too

        1130am is correct.

        GB, there is hedge trimming coming in part III and a Brazillian coming in part II - me jocks needed a wash.

          Another great video. Very interesting wall formation around the rocks to channel the water into the tank. You certainly had your fair share of flies on the trip. Regards Duncan

            The engineering on those rocks is fantastic hey. Lots of rocks here have that to channel water for storage.

              Looking at the tank from the drone view, it is massive indeed. The roof looks rather sad though. Was there any useable water in the tank? I imagine that with all those holes and the sunlight getting in, the water may be less than potable.

                  A couple of us were there on Sunday! Water not potable but sign says it is used for agric - spray water etc. the wall is complete and clearly maintained. It was a “susso” unemployment project in the late 1930s.

                    The trip continues. Starting off with the inaugural Sharkcaver guided tour and ending up at a very special spot, one I haven't been to in 8 years.

                      Fantastic video Shane. The drone gives us a better idea as to what type of country you are in. great work.

                        Thanks mate, i appreciate that

                        Flying the drone on this trip was a challenge due to 1. excessive wind (you can see it blow in the drone shots, particularly in part III yet to be published) and 2. inexperience.

                        Now, back to that god damn polishing

                              Ouch indeed! Hope the pinstriping polished out OK. The resolution of the drone camera is outstanding. Good work all round.
