‘She ain’t nothing but a gold digger’

Meekatharra

Well I’m back up on site now *sigh*. While I love the job the long swings can make it quite difficult, particularly when the night shifts arrive. That being said I will keep this post quite short tonight, a little bit weary after the 12 hours shift and to be honest I really should be sleeping. It may not mean much to some out there but I have been trying to get the work vehicles tinted to reduce glare and keep some of the heat out. I found that I was getting sunburnt even when sitting in the car. Up in Meekatharra the heat is something you can’t escape too easily. I’ve petitioned to the big bosses for something to be done as I felt this was a bit of a hazard. Most people retreat to the car because it’s cool, there’s no relief if it’s 45 degrees in there as well. Something was finally done about it ‘yay!’ and in the spirit of helping out the local boys I want to shout out to the fellas at Tint My Windows Perth. They flew up to site, bringing all their gear with them. Took the heat head on and drank just as well as the rest of us. Good on you boys! Continue reading “‘She ain’t nothing but a gold digger’”

Kick Off

Helping out

So we have had an interesting few days. I was getting some solar panels installed on my house the other week and got talking to the boys about websites etc. One of the blokes has a son who is learning about rocks at school and asked if we would be interested in heading out and showing the kids our collection. We got in contact with the school and with the referral from the father we were allowed to educate the class about geology. As promised I said I would shout out the boys at Perth Solar Power Installations as a thank you. There work and service were also fantastic so can’t go wrong there. Continue reading “Kick Off”
