Lol, I need my own private island. I'm actually willingly homeless at the moment from today. I would rather be homeless than live with others because they annoy me. I'm sleeping at the dock tonight. The good thing is I got a full-time job so I got an income. I got some sea soap so I will just jump in the water later and have a wash. Still a couple months of summer so I'm happy to sleep under the stars or in the back of the wagon.

I might go find a campsite tommorow after work. In the meantime I will try find a unit to rent.

The only person who does not annoy me is my Mother. She understands and knows me so she leaves me alone. Cannot say the same about my Dad, or any family member, or anyone I have ever lived with, girlfriends, friends, flatmates, whoever.

The only one who does not say things to annoy me and does not annoy me is my Mother. Even if she wants to discuss an issue she might have with me she always has the perfect words, very good and what she's says without offense, she is not annoying.

I'm a very calm person and don't like conflict but some people can make me crack, and my flip out is always just walking away, I would rather be peaceful and just leave and just walk away.

I found a camp ground. Right on the water so I can sit on my camp chair next to my tent and fish after work and there is no annoying people. I'm going to try another dock as well, it's perfect location and I have heard stories from that dock, and everytime I go past for years no one is ever there so it must be a good spot. It's quite funny because I always had the two docks I fished and knew that one but just never ever went there so now I'm going to test it.

My fishing bussy does not lie the dock so he's posts all my fish on FB and location and now everyone goes there, he even makes up stories to make himself look good from the dock. The other week a couple different people said " someone got a nice amberjack here the other day", yea it was me, but I never said anything. You tell someone a spot over time it just gets busy. It's like scollops and abalone, as soon as someone knows the spot, they tell a friend, someone says something then there is none left.

I this dock is only good for high tide and full of poles and oysters so I can see I will just get busted off but worth a challenge, but there is room to take it off the dock. I will scan the area.

Camping is going good, I'm saving costs by going back to the stone age and hand washing all my clothes then hanging them over my small one man tent to dry. I'm not paying for machines. I'm enjoying the stone age. It's great. I should go fishing off the beach later in the evening and catch dinner.

kiwidan and jasonc

Are you guys from New Zealand?
No,I live in Florida,we imported Australian pines as windbreakers.those are illegal to plant .they were used to stop wind ,they do reduce wind but also take over lawns and are invasive ,my old photos will have them ,they are useful for me to locate old groves or in some cases subdivisions .

I live near a river ,can town is a community of workers built around a fish processing center that was there until the late 1880s,it was razed by p.p.Cobb who bought the old cannery and made it a general store who also processed fish,can town had a rail to the river ,it was there quite recently that was used to move fresh catch to your boat in cans or recieve them,it also received goods and sold it that way to trade ,also one of three,Dawson's,ketching trading boat ,all three did the same .only p.p. Cobb remains.the Stuart feed,and general store is what became after ketching gave his boat to his nephew ,a.b.micheal .that still stands

Australia and New Zealand do have a good friendship and we get along well. The friendship is tight that no visa is needed for each to live and work in each other's county. If a new zelander wants to live and work in Australia for life they can and vice versa, obviously there is still a boarder and security, like people can be denied entry for criminal history and deported.
