Well that didn’t end well

Took a fall off the roof of my bus on Saturday, snapping my right humerus. They’ve had to fly me to Perth to get plates put in, so holed up at Fiona Stanley Hospital. Fly back to Victoria tomorrow.

Cheers guys, Bill, happened at the goldwire rest area. Wifey drove me to the hospital in Broome and they had me on the RFDS the next morning. I was cleaning my solar panels as they were filthy, there was a lot of twigs and crap between the panels so I slid off the ladder onto the roof to clear them out. Next minute I was on the deck, landed on a camping chair, might have broken my fall. At the virgin terminal now fly out at 09:45. Will be back once I’ve healed.

G’day lads, thanks for the words and the offers to help. Everything is ok at this stage, hardest part was my in laws trying to find where my wife left the cruiser at the airport. The people at the airport were fantastic in holding the keys for the cruiser and the bus until they were picked up. They can’t do much until the roads open again, both to Port Headland and then onto Newman. But there’s plenty of cold beer and food on board. I go and see a bone doctor in the city next week, make sure I’m healing properly. Going to be a boring convalescence. Brocko, I’ve done this task so many times, but this the first time I can think of where I’ve hopped off the ladder. Lesson has been learnt.

Hey there doc, don’t know how far the roads opening are, but look on the bright side, cats are home this week.

Well I’m bored out of my brain back home, sit around drinking beer and watching tv, which come to think of it, it’s kind of what I do on the road. Healing up ok, did have a slight infection but drugs sorted that out, see the doctor again next week, hopefully he has some positive news for me. If all is good we hope to be away again in June, bus is still in WA, so we need to go back to get that. All our bookings we had in WA and NT were all forfeited so we need to plot a new course.
