Job application

Before I headed off to Darwin I sent my resume off to a mob in Orange who are looking for a senior technician. I should know by the end of this week if I got the job. Orange is about the size of Dubbo, a little less Country, and 5 degrees colder.

I'd have to join the local branch of WIRES if I want to keep rescuing. And I do.

Some road trip photos

Here are some of the photos I took early in the Road Trip, including 4 I tried to turn into a panorama of Spencer Gulf and Port Augusta. I have some panorama-stitching software now I'll have to try out.

All the photos of the trip will be going here. Watch that space.

Woomera Rocket Park photos

Woomera looks like the military plonked a heap of .mil-designed offices and accommodation in the middle of nowhere. Which is exactly what happened. And it has all the appeal of an army camp.

Right in the middle of town is the rocket park, where a heap of surplus planes, bombs and research rockets are mounted for display. All these things were used during the 60s and 70s, mostly by the RAF and RAAF, but there are some RN (Sea Slug ship to air) and RAN (Ikarus ship to ship) missiles.
