Some days at work are better than others !

2 March 2011

Yesterday definitely falls into category: Best!
I was among  the lucky ones on our team who got to spend the day 4WD training.
Obviously the day started with the theory side...
but it wasn't long and we were off and learning some new skills...
There were definitely moments when we were out of our comfort zone..
but to be honest.... it was the most exhilarating day....
I think I shouted "That IS AWESOME!!" no less than a 100 times.

But....on a serious note...
it also gives us some knowledge and ability to access patients in outer remote locations..
the skills to choose where we can and cant get our vehicles.

Here are some iphone shots from the day...

Although these really don't show the full thrill of the day.....because its impossible to take the shots and be driving at the same time.

I also should mention the wonderful location for our training day.
Ian and I have long been saying we need to get out there.....and I cant believe we've left it this long....its on our doorstep...and its fantastic.

Here we are meeting up for the day at the Loveday Tavern on the property.

...a little up and over action....

...and yep....that was quite deep on the other side..

...some training in best way to get out of the bog...

water action = mud

and today....
I'm back to painting..
nowhere near as exciting as yesterday thats for sure.


  1. That does look like fun! ...Although I couldn't help but feeling sorry for you if you had to wash them afterwards ;)

  2. What a cool way to spend the day! I'd like to try that :) Not the vehicle washing bit though lol.

  3. Mardi that reminds of Christchurch when we were in the back of the Hagglund snow vehicle...remember me...scared stiff...and now here you are driving !!!!...OMG I am so very proud of you.....but I will be wary when we next visit and you say "Donna lets go for a drive"...with a sparkle in you eye.....luv ya

  4. Sounds like you all had so much fun Mardi! What a great way to spend the day!
