    Do you ever?

    Get that feeling where the hills/bush/ocean is calling you? I have been feeling it really strong the last couple of days, a feeling where you NEED to get away into the wild. It's almost all consuming and can make concentrating on life in the meantime a real battle.

    Yep, I think NEED is exactly the right way to put it.

    Staring out the window at the mountains thinking "Why am I not up on that ridge right now?". Few things are more peaceful than some natural silence and mountain air..

    So long as all the balls I've got juggling at the moment land where I want them to, Friday night will be spent chasing roos, and Sunday up there looking for tahr. It is almost 'Lo-vember' after all.

    Quite a few variables in the equation, but I'm positive it'll work out one way or another
