After a quiet night in Airlie Beach, the Oz bus took us to Kroombit cattle station. The evening's activities included learning how to use a whip, mechanical bull riding, and a number of party games which brought us a bit too up close and personal with each other. By 7am the next morning, I was on horseback, riding out to muster up goats. My horse, "Buffy", wasn't the liveliest of horses and didn't seem as groomed as I fantasize all horses should be groomed. (Carol and John's horses on the other hand...)
It was pretty amusing to round up goats for a bit, shouting "hey opp opp opp!" After we'd put them back in their pen, the group got together for a goat rodeo where we tried our hand at roping and branding (with a cold brand).
Later in the day we were dropped off in Hervey Bay where we found out that another cyclone was in the area of Fraser Island where I was supposed to be on a 4x4 Safari drive and camping trip. Needless to say, that was canceled and here I am in the Palace hostel waiting to take off to Rainbow beach tomorrow afternoon.
I bought a hat at Target. As I was at the register, I realized that the shorts, underwear, and t-shirt that I was wearing were all bought at Target. Gotta love
300th post... so what.
