Bushman files - #3 The Blue Mountains
- by Tony Charky-
Once arrived at the Blue
Mountains, everyone told me to go to the tree sisters.
What shall i do with 3 sisters? A threesome would already
be too much for me, a foursome would just kill this
Lucky for me, I found out that the tree sisters are
just mountains - three peaks from where you have a nice
overlook over a blue-green canyon. When you are on top
of a canyon you obviously want to know what's down there,
and the perfect way to find out was on a 3 days horse
With me I had eight Canadian babes (first three sisters
and now eight chicks - this really started to look like
a survival trip). I Haven't been on horse's back for
20 years, so after a day and a half the dingos could
follow my the track of my bloody butt! But I ain't complaining,
cuz in the evening by the campfire my Canadian harem
took care of me like a real sultan.
At the end of the horseride
I decided to walk back to the hostel along the "six
footh track" - a three day walk including a 180
meter hanging brigde and a two hour climb in natural
steps to finally get back out of the canyon. Starting
to loose some weight here.
Later, 15 hours on a bus brougt me to see a "flying
doctors"-base at Brooken Hill, a small mining town
in the middle of nowhere. It never got boring, cuz you
had a lot of wildlife to see. There were thousands and
thousands of kangaroes, mostly "greys" but also the
occasional "big red". Pfff... Man, they are BIG.
All them roes are weird and
they seem to get a kick outta jumping towards oncoming
headlights. Allthough our busdriver did his outmost
to avoid them, some of them ended under the bus with
a big bang making the busdriver shaking his head and
whisper "Sorry matey, too bad".
With exception of the flying doctors, there was nothing
to see here. It is pretty much a ghosttown that only
comes alive during the weekends when the miners returns
to town. So, leaving here I go on to the Menindee Lakes
and Darling river where I spent some of the best times
of my entire trip.
But more about that next time!!
