    Tambo chicken race!

    June 26, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    We went to the local pub “The Royal Carrangarra”! Where they run a chicken race every night. It was great fun! See the next photo on FB! They used a remote control car with a container with seed in it that the chickens chased! You then placed bets on the various chickens! Half the proceeds went to the winner the other half went to the Royal Flying Dr service.Read more

    The Big Merino - Blackall

    July 3, 1991 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    I know there is a "Big Merino" in NSW and that is really big, however we need to get some credit to the residents of Blackall. The Big Merino is part of the dedication residents have to sheep and also a memorial to Jackie Howe, apparently the best sheep shredder to ever walk the planet.

    The Big Merino is located at the northern end of town, on the Landsborough highway and next to the information centreRead more

    Tambo, Queensland

    August 30, 2014 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    The bus from Brisbane was 13 hours. A horrendous length in English terms, but in Australia, that'll only get you half way across one territory. And that was still half the length of one of the bus rides I took from Laos. It was bareable in the end none the less. I had my guitar with me on the coach to keep me occupied at the back, and a group of Canadian chicks joined in and travelled with me for half the journey. They were probably the last females my age I'd see for 2 months.

    I got the job offer after making some phone calls to the contacts Ryan had set me up with at my real estate job. The company was Usher Pastoral and they arranged for me to join a family out near Tambo on a ranch called Truno. I arrived early in the morning on my first day and got picked up at the local petrol station by a very Australian sounding man, Ronnie Haffey, who drove me, my heavy backpacks, and my Akubra cowboy hat to get settled in on the ranch.
