Kelsie and I were very blest to be able to get out and about a bit this past few days. I can’t actually work full steam on my foot yet so we had a few extra days off scattered in my roster. It was time to get out and explore a bit more and be lazy about it to aid foot recovery: we took the troopy. I had a bit of help with the driving too as I’m not keen on clutch use yet. I was the co-pilot this whole adventure.

If you zoom in to the centre of this photo you will see Kelsie up a mountainside. She really thinks she’s a mountain goat. Absolutely no fear there and I stand down the bottom hoping she can get down cos I currently can’t get up at all.
This place is just an incredible story of upheaval. Lake Frome Lookout on the Station Backtrack. Where our communications come in, and the best lookout you can get to in a troopy. Of course you could pay for a better one on the Ridge Top Tour.Some fascinating trees have grown here in spite of the harsh conditions.
I have a great Troopy. I had a great time having a look around.
