Barkley Homestead

Well, this could be weird as I am typing this now Oct 18th 2013, pretty much nearly 2 years on from my trip. I stopped blogging online, as to why I am not sure. But today I decided I would finish my trip in my own words.

Lat time I blogged I was in Renner Springs in the NT. I woke up early with a little dusty hang over, however today was a short day I headed to the Barkley Homestead which is east of Threeways. once I turned off at Threeways I was heading east which meant getting close to the east coast.

There is just something about the Territory which I cannot put into words how are ease I am with the outback and the chilled life it can be.

I made it Barkley homestead got set up and was ready to relax for the rest of the afternoon and thought I might dip in the pool. HOLY MOLY THE POOL WAS COLD AS ICE, Quickly got out and was going to sit on my chair and watch the world go by when I could smell smoke. Then having a mini heart attack as i have never really been near a bush fire 50 m from and mind you the Barkely homestead has petrol station,
I ran out the front and its was wild they were back burning and the wind pick up and the fire  raced across the rd, lucky this time it was past the homestead.......

this resulted in a drinking session. I went back to vinny started having chats with the neighbours then heading inside to the homestead. UMMMM HELLO why was I know in there early the guy that was running the place, hottie, cuttie farmer boy. so I sat at the bar have a few cidars then an old mate sat down and starting buy me more cidars, after 3 cidars from him it was time to run,
