    Finally getting around to several mothballed, unfinished pieces.

    Great!

    I didn't mention it in the original post, but i'm also going to hopefully learn/improve some unicycling skills during the luckdown.

    Unicycling? That is definitely a skill :)

    I've started a new glass mosaic. I'm in the "loving this" stage, which will be followed by the "when will this ever end" stage. :D:p

    It's only for the more quirky PC members lol. I'm a ok unicyclist, but there's always more to learn. It takes time.

    I might as well learn to juggle now too.

    When you master juggling a chainsaw, a watermelon & a chicken on the tall unicycle, I'll come and watch. :D

    How many obscure little parks and hidden gem areas can I find and have my adventure picnics with the little one whilst keeping social distancing. SD hasnt been an issue really as we go places where there are barely any folks if any. We have had quite a few adventures around Sydney over the last few weeks.

    At the end of the day, life is but one big crazy adventure.

    I've been tearing around the streets of the Druitt. With not many cars on the road, due to the lock down, I can practice my cornering skills.

    You could probably do the standing ¼ mile along Kurrajong Ave without attracting any attention :D

    I saw that somebody broke the record driving from New York to Los Angeles (29 hours) - though likely to be broken shortly. What would be the equivalent from Mt Druitt?

    Perhaps Druie to Broken Hill, coz you can't cross state lines.

    The Druie to Anzac Bridge in peak hour will take about the same time. :eek:

    Aerial tissue is another one of my hobbies, except that the studio is now shut thanks to COVID-19 and I needed to have ankle surgery after a bad giraffe unicycle dismount. That was 6 weeks ago and the ankle still isn't so strong.

    One time a few years ago up in Newcastle I watched this gal do a great unicycling and juggling act - I actually think I might never pick up juggling though. FB_IMG_1586695018538.jpg

    I've done Druitt to Gold Coast in 11 hours, but that's with a stop at Nimbin. Could have done it quicker but when I got out of Nimbin I mistakenly started heading back to Sydney.
