New member from Resolute

Unread postby Ozimo on Sat Feb 07, 2009 11:46 am

Yes, you read that right, born in Resolute in the old NWT, now called Nunavut. I was an rv delivery driver for several years, while I lived in Wyoming for 30 summers. My Dad operated a crop farm there. Inherited the farm, sold it twice and went to delivering ships for a living. Now in Oz and travelling the outback with my crew and a Unimog Expedition camper. Glad to be here instead of affinity forums.

Well, it's tomorrow afternoon here. We left sunny Cairns driving to Darwin - where it's cooler and rainy this coming week. Some of our crew flew to Alice Springs in a small private plane and will be meeting up in Darwin on Wednesday. The drive so far has been boring.

Would I EVER love to travel in your area but the lack of camping on the way makes it difficult. Welcome aboard and DO send pictures. / Skip

I assume you meant Nunavut? Camping there is easy - but you need a canoe or boat - just pull into shore anywhere, pop up the tent and catch a few fish for dinner. You might need to bring a propane stove, cuz wood is kinda scare above 75N

We're back on board our ship headed to the Galapagos. Can't say the Oz trip was all that interesting - I'd been there before. The fires interrupted most of it. A mutual friend of the family got us set up with a Barramundi fishing trip out of Darwin and that proved to be the best part of it. These fish averaged 12kg and are voracious eaters. The aborigines build dams in the rainy season, and when the waters recede they are trapped. Some Queensland impoundments have fish in excess of one metre long and 25kg. Resembles the American Snook, in size and table fare.
