Default Sharkcaver's shitty tag along tours

Took a group of 4 others on the inaugural sharkcaver's shitty tag along tours trip over the weekend for 4 days.

What a blast, albeit rather cool over night.

The aim was to knock off a couple of troublesome caches, find some unknown to me indigenous art with the scant information to go on I had, visit an inactive underground mine and tour some places of days gone past.

We achieved most of our aims.

As it turns out, it turned into a pulling the piss out of sharkcaver event, in the veign of russell coight and I'm expecting a vid production to be made from that.

As I'm away again in a few days, I will have to come back to the post to fill you all in.

But for now, some teaser pics:

1. Indigenous art I have previously found
2. one of those troublesome caches
3. fire has started
4. an old station tank
5. tough country even for veteran wildlife

PS. 1553rl - I saw your name in the book at Mt Jackson

PPS - did I mention the Wheatbelt and Yilgarn are awesome at this time of year?

Nice photos and looks like a great trip - a good variety of places to explore.
I hope they've all banded together and ordered you a bunch of shirts embroidered with the name of your new venture as per the post title.
I'm sure it's exactly what they needed in these covid times, you merely gave them the opportunity to conjure up their own inner russell coight.
If you're lucky, you can accidentally add a little Harry Butler to the repertoire, then you'll be set.

Lol. good ole Harry. Will let the dude who set up all the props know about that....

There is an impromptu digeridoo session - I'm just waiting for someone to tell me I'm culturally unsensitive and racist what with all this BLM and political correctness atm....
never mind the fact I researched beforehand and went out to search an Aboriginal heritage site, so I could record it on film for preservation purposes.

That said, there was lots of belly laughs, great company and awesome sights. How could one go wrong. Screw you covid

Hi Shane, Mt Jackson, yes we were up around there too and "snap" check this pic out - does it look familiar? One of these days we'll end up in the same place at the same time !!!

Cheers

Sure does look slightly familiar. It's a big place, WA, but I'm sure I'll bump into you one of these days.

Sharkcaver love your trips around and your pictures. If this is a shitty tag along can't wait to see a trip that isn't shitty.
Regards Allan.

Thanks Allan. I hope tomorrow you can see how shitty it really was

trip advisor rating definitely 4.5, not the 1.2 they reckoned it was.
