After Horse Riding, Wild Goat Wrestling, Clay Pigoen Shooting, Mechanical Bull Riding (Briefly) & A HUGE EXPLOSION!!...I am now in Airlie Beach ready to sail off around the Whitsunday Islands!!
My Last Day in Hervey Bay There isn't a great deal to do in Hervey Bay, It is where you go to do Fraiser Island so my last day wasn't mega exiting! I got to catch up with Mike, who I had travelled with from Sydney to Noosa, which was cool & watched the new Will Farell film 'Semi Pro'. That night Myself & all of my Fraiser Group got some food & stayed in the bar playing pool - had a Wicked night!!
Up early the next day to catch the bus to Kroombit for the Cattle Station! It took us 7hrs to get there, but it was well worth it! I made a new friend...my brave steed Chrissy (my horse for the day!). We spent loads of time mustering wild goats! ha! While we were waiting to get our horses, everyone was talking about the only white horse in the group, it was twice as big as the others and guess who got it...YESS ME! HA! My new pal! Being Zorro, I effortlessly controlled my horse!! When we had finished we drove over to the shooting range & rodeo ring! Shane, Damo & myself (The Scapegoats!..get it?) had to catch & wrestle a wild goat to the ground! I was given the task of wrestling it & so went in like I would with my opposite number while playing rugby! We did it in 21 seconds YESS!!
Next came the shooting & having never fired a gun in my life, I managed to hit 2 out of 5! Smashed the plates to pieces! Once we had all finished the bus driver gave the guy $10 to pay for the rig he was about to shoot & explode! I managed to bribe the driver with my own $10 & take the shot! $10 WELL SPENT!! as soon as i pulled the trigger there was a HUGE EXPLOSION & loads of flames! Clarkson, Hammond & May would have been proud! I am getting some caravans involevd next time!! Chuffed after blowing something up I learned how to properly crack a whip! So watch out! We also got to ride a mechanical bull! At this stage we were all a few beers up, which would explain my pathetic attempt! I think I held out for 1 or 2 seconds!! It's harder than it looks!!
We had an early start this morning for out 10 hour bus ride!! we set off at 7.00 am & when we got here at 5pm I had loads of stuff to do, such as washing my stuff ready for tomorrow & buying a new bag & 2-tone shirt! HA!
Looking foreward to my next 2 nights on a boat!!
Love & Miss you all!!
