My New Adventure....

You may have noticed the blog has been a little quiet the last week or so.  That is because I am now in the small country town of Roma.  I am out here working as a Warehouseman for a Mining Company out here. (No mining debate please).

This is SO outside of my comfort zone I don't know where to start.  I have always been a white collar office worker and now I am a blue collar Storesmen who rides a forklift and throws around large freight boxes and pallets of mining equipment. 

Oh my.  (As Uncle George would say).

Needless to say I am loving it.  It's hot.  It's filthy work.  The people are great.  I am FIFO (Fly In Fly Out) 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off.  Work starts at 6am (I am not thrilled about the 5am wake ups), and we work till 5:30pm.  The pay is good.  We have barbecue lunches on the weekend.  And Roma is a cute little town. 

So...........I am living a new adventure and I couldn't be happier.  I would never have thought I could do this and yet I got my Forklift License, I am here, and I am doing something that will provide good money now and in the future.

Life is good.

Here are a few pics of Roma for you to have a look at.

Hope you are all good!
