Read About It

midnight-oil-road-trip-09

I’ve never considered myself to be (what some call) ‘a man’s man’. This is due to a number of factors:

  1. I have limited sporting abilities, (I still remember my year 7 rugby trials where I got absolutely steam-rolled by a guy who was smaller than me)
  2. I am not that fussed about alcoholic beverages
  3. I don’t feel the urge to be ‘Wild at heart‘, whatever that means
  4. I play piano and write songs
  5. I still like confectionary

 

…but last Thursday, I climbed a few rungs up this ‘aussie male’ ladder. 

 

I did the following things in 24 hours with a good mate from Moore College, Geoff Thompson:

  1. A road trip. (yes it was to canberra, but it still counts)
  2. Stood 2nd row as Midnight Oil did a two hour reunion gig
  3. Camped out on Lake George on the way home. Falling asleep to the sound of  road-trains going nowhere.
  4. Drank (a) beer.
  5. Woke up and tried to shoot foxes, but had to settle for shooting coke cans on fence posts instead.

    Can we book you in as a speaker at the next men’s event? Your masculinity is truly inspiring.

  2. Love that photo of your with a gun, brother Luke!
