Wishful thinking?

I wouldn't mind being there too.

Can I can along? My bags aren't emptied yet.

You bet! Just bring your art gear. You can buy sarongs and t-shirts in town.

Pick me up at the airport? I'll be the one trailing pencils and paper scraps. I hope I can find a sarong in colors suitable for field work.

(Hey, fix my previous typo, will you? I hate looking incompetent more than I have to.)

I'll be there! (Actually, I've got a friend coming over in late July to do some field work out west of Cairns. I'm still trying to decide whether I fly up or drive up. One way takes 4 hours, the other fours days.)

Hmm. Don't think I can edit posts. Be fun, though. Could lead to all sorts of mischief ...

I suppose one can't edit posts. B&B is set up so comments get cleared through me before they get posted, but I've never tried to edit one. (I thought mischief was the point.)

So what's the late July research topic in Cairns? From my end of the planet, field work in late July sounds excruciating unless one is above treeline. Probably not the case there! (sigh) Can you see the green glow of envy from where you are?

We're looking at snails on the limestone beyond the western edge of the Tablelands. A bit of ecology. A bit of natural history. And a bit of sight-seeing too, I hope. It's been years since I've been to the Chillagoe - Mungana region, so I'm really looking forward to it.

July is warm rather than hot in that part of the world. Dry too. (Well, normally. Last time I was up north in August, it was teeming.)

Green glow of envy is good. I can bask in it!
