Recreational Facilities

At the Mt Keith Mine Village there is a lot of free recreational facilities available, which I am planning to use a fair bit.
I am hoping that I will be able to get fit by the time I get back.
The Free services include: Pool, Gym, Boxing Room, Cricket Pitch, Tennis Courts, and lots of other stuff.
I am really looking forward to heading up there. Posted by Picasa

The Bistro


The Bistro, also called the dry mess, is the Buffet food hall where all of the people have their Breakfast and dinner.
Because the Village is 12km south of the mine, Lunch is taken onto the site in the morning. Posted by Picasa

The Village Store at Mt Keith


This is the Mt Keith Village mine site store. It looks nice and tropical doesn't it.
I have been told that they sell almost everything, so that I will have all the luxuries, and even more, compared to when I am at home. Posted by Picasa

My New Home

My New Home
Originally uploaded by michaelwheatland.

This is what I will be living out of for the next few months.

We went down and purchased this extra large 90 litre backpack for my

trip to Western Australia.

I will be living at the mine for half of the time, but the other half

will consist of me trying to carry all of my belongings on my back.

My first backpacking experience! I am really looking forward to it. The

only things I am going to miss while I am over there is my dog, Jade,

but most of all my girlfriend, Ash.

I hope she can come over and visit me for a week. And I am sure that I

will be annoying her family by being on the phone all the time.

Well, I leave on the 3rd of December, and all is looking up. I am more

or less organised and I think I am going to be totally prepared when I

get over there. All except for a tent. I am going to need to buy one

from my first pay cheque.

Looking forward to it otherwise.
