4 minute post

I'm in Gayndah. It's small. They have a grocery store, a petrol station, one school, two bars, and a bottle shop. And maybe a thousand residents. And lots of farms.

Picking mandarins is better than picking strawberries, and I can say that I haven't forgotten how to climb trees. We have big ladders, and one huge ladder for the tallest trees. Worked a long day the other day, and watched the sun set over the orchard from the top of one of the tall trees. That was kind of cool. I also get to drive the tractor and feed the cows some mandarins when we're done for the day.

There's no cell phone reception within 100 miles of here. Weird.
