Baldina Creek in Red Banks Conservation Park?
Little way from Renmark though.
Correct. not to long a drive renmark
A Karri forest somewhere?
No visible geology.
Quite removed from karri belt.
Visible hydrology though....
Thinking of good piggin locations.
Blackwood River near Nannup ?
Vegetation looks a little Tas like?
Looks like very clear greeny water. No tannin, so maybe not SW WA or TAS. Lots of timber down, maybe near a reservoir? Dog, so not a Nat Park?
What about those ones near Melbourne in state forest, Thompson river?
Not a bad guess, does look a little low flow upper Styx'ish.... but it's not.
Looks like, because it is. Nothafagus c. in the background with emergent eucalypts, big wood in the river mostly E. delegatensis. That combination should rule out a few possible locations.
Collingwood River ?
Team Bears need a dog like that to carry chainsaw tools,file,chain& bar oil and two stroke.And a section in pack for iPad too.
When we run out of something like fluids Bears just "say fetch it VB "gesturing with hand movement to their mouths.
He does carry few things for us, handles the weight fine, up to around 10-12kg, just the bulk throws him a little, fitting through gaps and on rocks/cliffs etc. He's a pretty experienced tree / chainsaw campaigner too, taught him that chainsaws and tree's are dangerous when he was a pup by tying him to the trailer and scarfing a big dead jarrah to land 2m in front of him in the mud. Poor little bugger nearly dragged the trailer up the road, never had a problem with him getting in the drop again though.
Not so good with the beer though, probably would drink decent stuff, but imagine he'd treat VB with more disdain than lettuce....
He is not the only one who struggles with more than 12 kg.
Yeah I've been on some parts of The Styx that resemble that image.
Stonehaven Creek ? or closer to Frenchmans Cap- Ness Creek ?
Last multi-day walk, loaded the barrel up with his food for four days, his sleeping matt, our sleeping matts, the light and the stove and canister. On the way out, he got the rubbish as well. He didn't like the tent poles, as they tended to make annoying clicks with the canine gait.
Top handle on harness is good for hauling dog, or wet crossings.
Is none of the above mentioned Tassie Rivers.
How's the dog with the old Joe Blakes ?
Trusting your pup with your stove. Now that certainly is comradery. .
Are we in The Tarkine or Lemonthyme? Both have Delegatensis up highish
Pretty good. Is moderately interested, but wary, certainly doesn't lunge after them like some breeds. Am careful and can call him off or on, but also Tasmanian snakes are a fairly docile bunch of black slugs. Catch thin lizzies and goanna's fairly regularly and try to attach them to his nose to help him develop an aversion to reptiles.
Meeting an eastern brown or T-pan in the long grass would be a little different.
Not in the Tarkine, but the Lemonthyme is closer.
Hmm, somewhere in the Liffey, though it's mostly dry. Maybe jackeys Marsh or remnants on Lomond?
None of those either.
Fido needs a go pro.
No Go-Pro's in this family.
I come from the slide film tradition, if you want POV, it's done with an expensive SLR & fish-eye lens.
Alright, NW or NW Tassie? or somewhere in between?
Well, yes, in a way it's between NW Bay & NW Tassie. But really it's north.
Any raises on the Tassie river with lots of laterally laying gum top stringy bark logs suggesting a section of meandering, low energy flow?
the Weld, but I think its in the NE
Forth Falls Ck?
Liffey? did I already say that...
Can't recall, but neither of those.
Is it classified as a 'rivulet'?
No, I would say a major river, up there in the top six.
