Racking Up the Air Miles

I was up in Darwin, Northern Territory for work this whole last week and head a really excellent time. I learned quite a lot and was frankly spoiled by our gracious hosts. I hope to get back up there soon because I think I only saw the tip of the iceberg, and there is a whole lot more to see. But I expect it won’t be for awhile thanks to COVID-19.

Anyway, this is a photo of one the machinegun crews from 1 Brigade, Australian Army putting on a demonstration for us. They were highly professional and very impressive folks.

World-travelling adventurer with a dry wit and a taste for single malt whisky. Spent my entire adult life in uniform and most of that as an infantryman--with all the accompanying ailments one would expect from such a lifestyle. Looking forward to the day when I can dedicate myself to writing full time, cutting firewood, and pursuing the elusive white tail.
