Some of my pages:
  • Find me! Some information about my location map showing my last check-in messages.
  • I worked at Newcrest's Telfer Gold Mine for 4 1/2 years and am back for another 12 months - flyin / flyout.  Here's some random Telfer pictures.
  • Here's a story about my trip to WA's Stirling Ranges in May 2002 (and revisited in Nov 2010)
  • Some tips for new bushwalkers.
  • Rebuilding a Trip 35 camera.
  • Some places I've been lucky enough to visit on business trips.
  • In 1996, my Dad had a quad bypass heart operation and due to complications we almost lost him. This story is his recollection of some of these events.

And here's a little about me:

Pretty much fully retired now.  Been back at Telfer for short term assignments as Senior Electrical Engineer during 2017 & 2018.
Did a small assignment for St Barbara Gold at Gwalia minesite.
