Yup.

It is we who are spinning wildly as we careen recklessly about the Universe ( NASCAR style! ) at about 20,000 times the national speed limit in most countries.

Well going South across the St. Lawrence over the Seaway International Bridge there is the Akwesasne Indian Preserve 59, on Cornwall Island.

It looks pretty rural on Bing Maps.

Might provide some great settings for sunrise shots.

Sunrise shots in a foreign country.

Maybe even one of those time-lapse things like you showed us the other day

Pretty cool stuff.

So.

What kind of turbocharged diesel engine work takes you 'abroad'?

Ah, Wangaratta, its along the road, round a couple of bends and over a hill or two. Depends where you start from.
I would be starting here:

48.195 North

122.124 West.

Is there a freeway all the way? I swore off commercial air travel when it lost the magic and became rectal agony, sometime around the early 1990's. If I can't drive there, I'm probably not going.

Unless, of course, the air travel is on a private plane.

Then I might consider it.

As long as meals and a nice pillow are inclusive of the fare.

Maybe.

I agree. Why would I get up early if I can enjoy something like this around 4 pm with my afternoon tea (in early February)?
Very nice shot. Great balance of exposure over what can be a difficult combination between the indoors and the late afternoon sky.

But I don't have any kids.

So.

My dog maybe?



Wait.

She died about 7 years ago.

And she didn't leave me anything!

Well, except 15 fantastic years of loyal companionship.

I guess I could leave her everything. Have it buried out there by the big fir tree where I buried her. She always liked to lay there in the heat of the summer afternoons.

Nah.

The logistics just wouldn't work.

I mean, how could I bury the property where the grave is, when the grave is on the property?

Yeah, I know, details man.

Details.

Well, back to living like there won't be a tomorrow.

Slaving 70 hours a week building airplane wings so I can pay for this Rancho Costa Plenta even though I don't have anyone to leave to.

Maybe I'll just blow it all up.

By road you mean that big thing called the 'Hume Highway'?


Something like that. From where I am you drive a day to get to the Hume Highway.

Johnny Depp has a plane that has plenty of practice going from near your place to kind of near Wangaratta. Should be able to find its own way now.

- not from those co-ords!
In case you are incapable of understanding maps, all the dark blue on the map is water; very deep water, very wide water.
There are a number of ways to cross, but freeway is not one of them: fly, sail, or swim (but only if you are an optimist - an extreme optimist).


From Melbourne, to where you could fly (except for your extreme aversion) or sail there is a road called the Hume Freeway. It is freeway by name but not by nature: while major exits and entrances to the road are by conventional on ramps and off ramps, intersections with smaller roads are even more conventional intersections without grade separation. (One of my pet peeves! Grant rant over)
