I am pissed off for several reasons: (1) Something in my personal life I’m not going to write about further; (2) My air mattress was punctured by a double-G (an evil seed pod designed to inflict damage to anything that dares come in contact with it); and (3) it’s bloody hot. I am not normally pissed off at nature but while I am angry at (1) and (2), I may as well be angry about (3) too. I explored Hamersley Gorge in the morning and the ghost town of Wittenoom in the afternoon. I am camped in the bush now. Great! Just as I wrote that last sentence I was given a fourth thing to be angry about: my headlight batteries just died. I’m very much looking forward to waking up to a new day tomorrow.
