Some time ago the Club decided to support the Explorers' Wells' Project as a worthwhile community engagement where results would be seen virtually instantly.

I urge Members to get behind the Project. Our first well 'refurb' trip can be seen here: http://www.adventures.net.au/explorers-wells-project/well-refurbishments/koorarawalyee-well

It was hard work, but good fun, nonetheless :)

How can you be looking forward to the next one?
You were working harder than most of us!

There is something truly satisfying about volunteering a couple of hard days yakka for posterity's benefit.  And the great company makes it enjoyable.  Oh...and I get out into the bush.  Why wouldn't I be looking forward to it!

Thanks everybody, for a fantastic weekend.  :)  I learn't a lot about my local environment.  A bit of 'hard work' didn't hurt me.  Bring on the next one.

Great trip report, Kim.

Take care out there.

Of course, that's right.

I forgot to include in my Trip Report that Graham got a staked boot!

While we were clearing Hunts Track he had a piece of mulga pierce his boot and his foot. Apart from the initial scream of surprise he didn't complain about it much but I think it was a 10mm puncture into the sole of his foot. Ouch!! And a boot that is not now waterproof. But, hey, cheaper than a staked tyre!  8)

Join us on our next well refurbishment project and you too can get an up close and personal, real live, genuine experience of what the pioneers had to deal with!
