I went into the bush with Alastair to record some data from the rig.
I brought my special Rite in the Rain book even though it is definitely not raining (and hasn’t for a couple months)…I like to be prepared ;)
One of the drill helpers emerged from the greenery with his machete and a sizable bunch of bananas on his shoulders.
I don’t make my way into the forest very often and although it probably feels like his own backyard to Alastair it still feels a very mysterious place to me.
Once we finished collecting the drill data, Alastair had some core loaded into the vehicle to bring down to camp and the drill helpers gave the Land Rover a much-needed push to get going up the hill.
With a parting gift in hand, a little bunch of bananas broken off the stalk :)
