    Thanks for taking us on your trip. I always enjoy the sights you share.

    Well, if you aren't old, then I’m not either! That’s good news, I can do longer hikes, and, and, and other stuff too! Very exciting! You’re welcome for the take along, STinGa, but if I start feeling old again, I’ll have to leave you (the camera) on the side of a track somewhere. lol I won’t just leave you, I’ll wave goodbye!

    It sure is good to be back out and about! Just as well too, because I’ve got a list of about 28 walks I want to do. That’s too many walks to let life get in the way of them! Thanks for watching, Hawk-eye, it’s good to hear from you, I hope all is well!

    Yes, BlazeAway, mental note... more angles of hammy stuff – very important! I haven’t been talking about my hammock gear much in my videos. That little part on my set up was my half-bottomed attempt to start doing so. Just between you and me, I’ve already made another/next video, and I didn’t talk about my hammock at all, so I’ll have to make up for it in the video after that with lots of angles. Thanks for watching, BlazeAway! It’s good to see your trail name appearing here and there again!

    Hi there SkyPainter, it’s good to hear, or is that read, that you enjoyed the video, thanks for taking the time to let me know! I’ll have to get myself a GoPro 3D camera. Then the forest would look “supur,” as BlazeAway would say. I was thinking that those Skinks were a bit on the chubby side, but I didn’t want to say anything, in case I offended them – you know what Skinks are like! lol The last thing we need is Skinks protesting in the streets.

    Wellllll, he came on his way, and then a what do you know, I saw him last night on a TV show, he was a blowing it out, a really knock’en em dead, playing rock n rock music through the horn in his head...

    They were the days! I first heard that song on the first kind of record that came out (no, I didn’t buy it new, I’m not that old). It was the stiff, thick vinyl that broke, if you hit it on something hard. Now I’m feeling old again, I need another pep talk from, STinGa.


    Thanks for watching the video, lilprincess, and for the trip down little people eater lane!

    Yeah, the waterfalls are great and never seem to get old... if only they came with volume controls! I suppose the grand master creator can’t think of everything. I’m glad you like the video, Hototo, thanks for commenting too, that’s good!

    Hello, OutandBack! It’s good to hear from you and I’m pleased that you liked the trip report. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I like waterfalls! To me they are one of natures greatest creations, and no matter how many I see, I always look forward to seeing another one!

    What’s that, Mr.Shug! I can’t hear you, because I’m a bit deaf! I’ve been hiking near some waterfalls and they were MIGHTY LOUD! It would be good if I could turn the noise down a bit, especially when I’m trying to film them, or sleep near one. I might do a Google search for, “waterfall volume controllers.” You never know!

    If we were to do a hike, it would have to be to Section 13. There is something special about that place. We could chuck a yoni, or two, off the top of the hill.

    I think I’ve worked out the audio sync problem I’ve been having, so hopefully the next video will be spot on! Thanks for posting and for watching my latest video, Mr. Shug! Oh, and me not being able to watch two of your videos was caused by faulty/rotten wires in my phone line. I had it fixed a couple of days ago, so it should be good from now on. Phone is clearer and my internet is much faster.

    You’re welcome for the trek, Jcavenagh! Yes, day two of autumn it is, and the temps “feel” about the same during the day, but a bit cooler at night. The weather man says it will be about 18C at night over the next few days and 25C during the day. 64F and 77F Really good hiking weather. During the summer months the temps average 20, 68 to 23, 73 at night and 29, 84 to 32, 89 during the day, which to me is just right. In winter the temps get right down to average 12, 53 at night and 22, 71 during the day. We get about 5 days a year where the day temps stay below 20, 68 and that’s enough!

    Same here! I spend 98% of my time, here at Hammock Forums, watching and reading trip reports. I like to see other places hangers hike. I realize that I probably won’t ever get to hike in any of the places I see on the trip reports here, so the trip reports are the next best thing. Thanks for watching my report, Bama Man and thanks for your comments.

    An adventurous trek and a bit of stealthy camping. Looked like fun, Brucie.

    It was a fairly adventurous hike, mostly because of all the trees across the track. A couple of the tree crossings, I was head pointing up the hill, climbing across a tree that had its top pointing down the hill. When I looked up, I was looking down towards the bottom of the tree, which was up the hill – a bit weird! I didn’t bother to check, but I’d say it would have been very hard to see my hammock from the creek. A bit stealthy indeed!

    Another great trip report. I love watching your trip reports, there very entertaining.

    There sure is a lot of damage on that track. Could be a long time before the Parks service clear that track. Most of the Fraser Island Great Walk up my way has been closed for the past 2 and a half years for the same reason.

    The next video, you’ll get to see me trip on a mysterious something and then just after that, you'll get to see me roll my ankle. That will be a bit entertaining for a couple of seconds. lol

    I think so. It will be a big job to clear and fix that track, the greenies will need help to do it - trail care group, or something. The over full lakes on Fraser Island are a bit of a disaster for the greenies and for the Great Walk walkers. A sad state of affairs!

    Thanks for watching the video, Phillipsart, knowing that you watched it and enjoyed it makes make happy! About time you made another trip report.

    Theres a few trips planned in the next few months. Varying from overnight hikes to 3 week hikes.

    It has been a while since I done a trip report. That will change shortly.

    Wonderful video, wonder if they are going to fix up the area? It was a beautiful track, the waterfalls added a bit of excitement, but the views from the waterfalls were spectacular. Thanks for posting, looking forward to more.

    Another good one! Thanks for sharing.

    BTW - you are not "old". A lot of folks here remember 1967... or at least snippets! ;-)

    Every time I watch a BrucieVid I feel like I've gotten on the plane and flown west 12K miles.
    Vines start up and grow down the tree-never thought of it that way-thanks!
    Zig-zag trails-we call them switch-backs.
    Blow down king you are and of course I'm thinking a serpent hiding in each one. Blow downs change their significance when you've got a pack on your back and when they repeat with no end in site they take their toll.
    Land Mullet then Elvis-coincidence?
    Noisy water througout! I've love it, only thing besides zephyrs (noisy high wind) that drowns Poof's snoring.
    That last water curtain you walked behind, did air temp drop dramatically between the 'curtain' and the rock face? I'm betting it had too with such a huge heat sink. I was just bown away by the shot at 28:53 through said curtain.
    OK OK OK I'm challenged with finding a waterfall somewhere I can walk behind!
    Did you sell your hammock? Camp on this trip? Just teasing Brucie
    WE can tell you just love to be in the bush. Thanks for sharing.
    Oh, it took me three days to watch all of this one....in the future a suggestion to you and me, break it up in 10 min installments, makes it easier to pace on.

    VIDEO: The Whole Place Is Falling Apart

    Thank you, Brucie for another fantastic video! Excellent cinematography and the sound was superb, especially on those remote shots!

    The scenery was gorgeous and you captured it perfectly. That would be a favorite hike for me as I love waterfalls. You need long pants and long sleeve shirts made of kelvar to combat those prickly vines.
