Another year has passed. And it has got me stuck in Australian Outback mining town Mt Isa, because my carengine just died 300km from here in the middle of the half-desert sort of thing. My birthday also started 7 hours before usual because of time difference and it sort of makes you age faster if you think about it.

I also learned this week that small pyramid shaped rocks and tyres dont go together verywell (twice) and colliding with kangaroos is really easy thing to achieve. It has been interesting week.

Who cares or is interested enough can look pictures at www.wolkar.blogspot.com and if you happen to undersand estonian you will do even better.

Hi Ugrik, I'm a guy who lives in cairns, about 2hours drive I think from the hottest place in australia (where you are) and I was just wondering... I've always been fascinated with beautifully crafted blades, I want to make them for a living but have no means to get started. Would you be interested in teaching me and maybe going into business??? I have an ability to learn fast as I am a thinker. Anyway, if you're interested let me know by message or something, I'll check back here and on your page every now and then. Thanks.

Stephen Michael Hawton

Hehei

Im allways looking forward to meeting new people around the world. We just fixed our car and probably will start driving to Townsville soon. Cairns and surroundings have been in our travelplans from the beginning but everithing got turned upside down by the dead engine.

Ok cool, well let me know when you get to cairns or the tablelands, (moving soon not sure where to yet) and tell me how long you're staying, I'd love to see how you work at least if not go into business with you one day maybe.

Stephen.

In my home we get -30 in most winters. Record is -43.5. We are amazed that the swimmingpools are all closed.

Wow, I would never be able to live in a place like that (granted I grew up in tropical countries).

You just need proper clothing and our houses are also much more suitable for the climate ;)

Thanx! Most of it is really enjoyable. The engine breakdown is one of the few drops of tar in the honeypot.

uhu,
I guess calling a tow-truck won't do you much good out there, so good luck with that

Actually people here are very helpful and towed us to next gas station which was luckily just 40 kilometers away and our friends picked us up from there and towed the rest of the 300km. :P
