    Good idea, Hawk-eye! Download and watch it when you can sit, relax and enjoy it. Itís got some mellow music in it to help with the relaxation side of it.

    Hi there BillyBob58! It sure is a beautiful place, especially the top part of the island. I really enjoyed to first half of day two and was more than surprised at how nice it was. Thanks for commenting!

    And that sand, yeah. It'll eat your feet if you're not careful. I like sandals, since they allow that to drain out as much as possible. Helps to prevent those blisters, but it's not a magic cure for certain.

    Thanks for sharing!
    Iíd like Florida, itís nice and warm there too, the name even sounds warm. Yes, Iíve got a bit to learn about walking on sand, I donít plan on doing it much, so it doesn't really matter too much. Cooler temperatures and shorter distances are two things Iíll remember for next time. Youíre welcome for the share, FLRider!

    ***I'm letting this one load so I can watch it in HD. I always look forward to your videos.

    I like the way you think, FireInMyBones! There are a lot of wide open spaces in the video and HD is the best way to view them. After it uploaded, I had a bit of a flip through it and I was surprised at how much of the detail is lost when viewing at 360 - 480 is a bit better. Thatís the spirit, donít let a bit of sand and heat stop you, it might slow you down a bit, but that gives you more time to enjoy the mirages. Iím pleased you thought it was worth watching, the last thing I want to do is waste peopleís time! Thanks for taking the time to enjoy it and thanks for your comments, FireInMyBones!

    On the Telegraph Trak I liked the Dr.Seuss looking palms...
    Were there any other people at the lighthouse? Once on the Telegraph seems like total solitude for you.
    What about bugs? I missed it if you said anything about them.

    Your assessment on body condition VERY SMART.
    Dogs eye dead horse???? I'd like to borrow that vernacular, just have to figure out where to use it!
    'Plenty of room to swing a cat' HA! Too funny
    Near the end, you're walking down the beach-what's in the brown bag? Boots? Souvenirs from the resort? Dont keep secrets from us Brucie
    Wonder how they can afford to run the boat with only 3 paying passengers?
    You're right I rarely know what day it is when I'm off cycle.
    Brucie as ALWAYS love your vids! They take me--literally to a different world--where I can ALMOST relax~there is always the possibility of a serpent!
    Hello there MedicineMan, hope you are well! Come to think of it, someone with a good camera and who knew how to use it could have taken some fantastic photos. Tell the curious minds that Iím using the Suntactics, sCharger-5. Itís pretty heavy, but if you give it full sun, it works as good as a lap top. It weighs 246 grams or 8.67 ounces. Itís made in the USA and its made to last! http://www.suntactics.com/ Tea tree oil is good stuff, stinks though. There was one fairly strange dude who walked past while I was doing a bit of filming at the lighthouse, but that was it. I was expecting a crowd, but got it pretty much to myself, which suited me just fine. The bugs werenít to bad, I didnít have to use spray and I donít think I had to cover up in the morning and evening. I got a few mozzie bits here and there, but nothing to worry about. Thanks for the tape link, that looks pretty good! If you came to AU and you asked for a dogs eye and or dead horse no one would know what youíre on about. Itís one of those old sayings that no one uses and most have never heard of Ė probably just as well. You might be able to use the dead horse part, just for a bit of fun. Youíd have to explain that dead horse means sauce and sauce means ketchup. I know, because when I was in the US in 1986, I kept asking for sauce and always had to correct myself and say oh, ah, ketchup! It was good fun! It really freakedíem out when I asked for egg on a pizza... ďEgg on a pizza, oowwww!Ē lol Well, if you really must know what was in the brown bag, and you must, you must! It was just some junk food leftovers I got from the resort the day before in preparation for a major pig-out session when I got back to camp. The campground I was in had no bins, so I was taking it to where there where bins (big stinky bins). I was expecting to see more than my fair share of snakes, but all I saw was one flattened lizard and one running lizard. Thanks for your comments and questions, MedicineMan!

    LOL! Oh now wait a minute, JayS, I think youíll find that sporting my best most stylish shirt and hat, I made the place look so good (head wobble)! Are you sure you where watching the right video! Youíd better take another look, this time be drunk, wear thick fogged up glasses, close one eye and squint the other. Thanks for commenting, JayS, I liked that!

    Hi ofuros! Yes, have hammock will hike. Hiking knowing that I have somewhere comfortable to sit, at camp, and even more comfortable to sleep, makes for a very happy Bruciehi5 hiker. The first part of the top of Mt Tempest I looked like I could do with a drink or ten. One of my tootsie toenails went black and still is now! Poor me! Thanks for commenting! Good hiking weather in Brissy at the moment.

    Looking forward to watching this one, tried watching with my iPad, but the Internet is not working to well on my iPad, managed to watch a few minutes, looking forward to watching the rest. My computer is currently tied up as I'm completing a trip report myself of the same duration, as soon my computer is free I'll be watching your video.

    Hopefully my video will be completed later tonight or tomorrow.

    Hello BlazeAway!

    Itís great to hear from you! I hope your shed is still coming along according to plan! When itís all finished, Iíd REALLY like to see a trip report called; ďCamp Blaze Coffee Sippin Supur Shed Front Porch Overnighter.Ē If you can somehow hang your hammock on the front of your new shed and make a video with you sipping your coffee, thatíd be great! Night swimming would be almost as good. Youíll avoid the sun that way, but the sharks might be a bit of a problem. Thanks for commenting and Iíll hear from you soon!

    Iím glad you found the video to be worth waiting for, Hawk-eye! Moreton Island is a nice place (a little bit to my surprise) and sharing it with you was my pleasure!

    It took me 38 minutes to say what you said in one sentence! lol Iíve got a book called, How to Say More With Less, maybe I should read it. Heat and workout is a very good way to sum up the hike, well put, Acer! Thanks for your sum up and for letting me know you enjoyed it.

    Truly fun....and sorta agonizing to watch your slog. I imagine them there blisters with sand in them and my feet sympathize with yours!
    Second hand coconut gave me a great giggle.
    Really interesting romp you had there and the decision to rest and not hike on was a good one. Smart.
    That shot of you waiting for the boat at the end was lonesome. Great moment.
    Hope those feet are healed.

    Had some spare time today and my computer is free after uploading a mammoth video to Youtube overnight. Grabbed a cup of hot chocolate, put my feet up and watched full screen in HD on my computer. Great trip report. I really love the perspective the GoPro Hero2 HD camera gives.

    I know how you felt with all those blisters, I used to suffer a lot from blisters till I finally found a pair of hiking shoes that fit me. Moreton Island looks beautiful. You'll love Fraser Island.

    Walking on the beach, I probably would have taken my shoes off and walked bare foot. Did you see any sea turtles?

    I've learnt a lot watching you with the GoPro camera and this trip report, I've ordered one of those tripods you showed me the other day, found a website selling them half the price what you paid for yours including delivery. Should be here within the week.

    My first trip report with my GoPro HD Hero2 is a bit bouncy in places, Your videos are so smooth. It certainly makes for a much smoother footage with the camera attached to a pole. The footage I've taken holding the camera are not bad, fairly smooth, the footage taken with the Headband supplied with my GoPro are to bouncy for my liking. The headband did come in handy with my last adventure climbing Mt Walsh twice over the weekend, got some great footage as I was climbing up. The headband is great for climbing but for walking not so great.

    Thanks for the great trip report, and yes I would love to walk along those beaches one day with my pack. I'll be taking my shoes of for those beach hikes in the future, especially if it's warm to hot temps, however if it's hot, sometimes you have no choose but to wear shoes on the hot sand. Many times I've burnt a layer or two of skin off under my feet, by walking in hot sand. Crocs sandals come in handy in those situations.

    Looking forward to your next trip report. Can't wait to see that one.
