A lifestyle change from science in a city to a rural block.

Sandbags on fence to dry. After Australia Day flash flooding around Woolgoolga when we couldn't make and deliver sandbags fast enough we have a cunning plan to pre-make them and store them in a shipping container in Woolgoolga. Untreated sandbags only last a couple of weeks once filled with sand so these have been treated in copper sulphate solution.
More drying sandbags.
We have a new sandbagging machine on a trailer - so big it won't fit into our main shed and we need to build a ramp in order to get sand in the top. This is the start of the ramp, it will have a bay for sand behind it.
I have also joined the Halfway Creek Rural Fire Service Brigade.
