fishing trip minus the fish

October 27, 2008 at 8:55 am (random things) (, , )

an interestingly eventful weekend.  we treked to mt isa for the annual barra comp at lake moondara, no fish caught and plenty of bad luck including:

1) horrible car/truck crash on mt isa road on friday so the road was closed, had to detour via duchess, an extra 100km, mostly on dirt roads,

2) on friday night, hideous losers camped nearby who didn’t go to bed until sunrise on saturday and spent most of the night being total morons (loudly)

3) a friend of a friend reversing his car into another friend’s car, oops.

4) finding a wierd, drugged out old bloke in the lake at about 11pm (reckoned someone had slipped him some drugs and tried to drown him, claimed he was in the water for 4 hours – this bit might have been true as we had heard someone yelling out a few times but couldn’t see anyone and assumed it was the losers camped near us playing tricks on us!) – all sounded suss and her was super-dodgey.  cops still hadn’t come to get him 2 hours later so we drove him to the fishing comp weigh station and found the cops to hand him over

5) another friend got a bug in his ear at about 1am on Sunday which was biting him, he ended up in hospital.

So, all in all, seriously BAD luck, but we still had a ball, lots of laugh, plenty of beer and no fish caught (well, 2 catfish and 1 turtle but they don’t really count.
