This is a collection of my blog entries and experiences with flying, and learning to fly. Something I had been wanting to do for quite a while.
You can find all the pictures I've taken here, and read below for my experience.
Specifically, I have a page for my Trips to Oshkosh, the mecca for pilots

After Hamilton Island, our next Island was Fraser Island. Sadly there is no airport there, so we had to fly to Harvey Bay (very scenic flight), and then take a bus and a slow ferry, we got there eventually though.
After the nice flights, we took the slow ferry to Fraser Island:
After dinner, we went for a night walk ranger led tour:
Around our eco hotel rooms, there was quite a bit of wildlife: water monitor, snakes, loads of spiders, and birds:
The next morning, we went for a 4WD tour of the island in a big bus:
huge 4WD bus
fresh water lake
the roads are interesting, soft sand makes it more difficult to drive
sometimes it felt like we were on a boat :)
We finished with a nice fresh water stream emptying in the ocean:
We tried to go on a whale watching tour, but after 5H of rough sea, we didn't see a single one, which is super rare, so we got our money back although we sadly wasted a lot of time:
So, we went ona 4H walk in the afternoon. Sadly we spent most of our time dodging mosquitoes and didn't have much to show for it:
Jennifer got her dingo stick, but we saw no dingos
lots of snails as tide was getting lower
interesting green worms
Before long, on our walk back, we got our private sunset:
ah oui! :)
The next morning, we went to see the little soldeier crabs before heading out:
plenty of them
they make a pile of sand and hide under it, they're quite skilled
a army of them
I'm assming they get eaten by birds
Solider Crabs are really fun to watch, here's a video to show you:
And that was it for our last location, Fraser Island.
