Hi all. Once again I have been encountering a noticeable decline in my health, so will be taking a ‘preventative break’ over the next week or so. There will be no posts until Saturday the 25th of September 2021 or thereabouts.

Two Week Break
It is once again time to have a bit of a break and this time I am aiming for a two-week break. I find it much better to be proactive when certain little signs begin to appear in my health than to wait for something more major to occur. So a little downtime and a little more sleep are what I require at the moment. So, I’ll be back in a couple of weeks.
Having a Health Break
Hi all. You may have noticed the decline in the number of posts recently. The reason for that decline has been ill health and I need to take a break for a week or two. So I’ll be back posting after a short recess. Thanks.
Website & Blog Changes
I have been busy making some very necessary changes to my websites, Blogs and other associated sites in recent days. Due to the prohibitive costs of web hosting, I have had to close my various websites and move operations across to various Facebook Pages – which of course has included much of my bushwalking, camping and wilderness sites. These changes will have an impact on this Blog also and these changes will become apparent over time.
You may have noticed some very minor changes here already, with the various links being updated and a small ‘About’ page added to the Blog.
What will also change here is that there will be more posts that will focus on my various adventures (bushwalking and camping, travels, etc) here in Australia, as I travel on day trips, take holidays, etc. There will also be more site specific posts linking back to the Facebook Page which is now my main website.
The main Facebook Page for Kevin’s Wilderness Journeys has a directory ‘note (Facebook’s term for a page hosted on Facebook),’ providing a means for finding all relevant links to further Facebook notes, other sites, etc, associated with Kevin’s Wilderness Journeys and my online presence.
I have also decided to archive the other Blog site associated with Kevin’s Wilderness Journeys – Kevin’s Wilderness and Travels. This is because the role this Blog played has now been superseded by the Facebook Page and the expanded use of this Blog.

Limited Posts During Personal Maintenance Time (Annual Leave/Holidays)
It’s that time of year when I take some time off for a variety of reasons and tasks – in short, it’s annual leave time. Yes, some much appreciated time off work. Last year I attempted a holiday and nearly died – diseased kidneys, blood poisoning, and internal bleeding – all a result of a kidney stone. What followed was months of illness, as that experience proved a catalyst for an old illness to make a renewed appearance also (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – CFS). Finally, in the last few weeks, I have been reasonably well and have been working at a frantic pace, trying to make up for lost time.
So now I hope to enjoy these next few weeks, do some traveling (including to the previous destination that I never arrived at due to falling ill on the way), get a bit of personal things done (yeah, including a host of medical stuff) and really, just to relax and have a break – an enjoyable break in fact.
So what does this mean for the Blogs? Well, I was going to continue to post in a haphazard manner over the next three weeks, but have since thought better of it and will not do so. So no new posts for the next three weeks – there may be some still to appear on one of the Blogs that I scheduled in advance, but you won’t hear much from me during this period. So enjoy the break from me, as I enjoy the break from everyday usual life.
No Posts This Week
I have been battling poor health now for months and I have reached the point of peak exhaustion (if that is a thing). I’ll be taking extended leave during May, along with a lengthy break from the Blogs, with the aim being that of taking the opportunity to recover and recharge the batteries. However, I also need an immediate break and so will not be posting to any of my Blogs this week. I have to try and get through work through April, in order to get through to May and my extended break. This may prove to be a very difficult task and even perhaps prove unattainable, yet that is the goal. Each day closer makes the remaining time that little bit easier to contend with. So, in short, there will be no posts for the remainder of this week and I will then start to bring the Blogs back ‘online’ again after that – at least until my extended break in May.
Silly Season Break
Just a quick post to let everyone know that this Blog will be on a break from now, over the silly season and should return early in the New Year. This isn’t so much because of Christmas and the New Year directly, but because my work schedule is so great and I won’t have the time to put in on the Blog during this period. I would have liked to keep up the posts, but it has become clear I just can’t keep it up at the moment – it is far too busy at work and with increasing staff shortages over the next couple of weeks, it will not get any easier.
Let me also take the opportunity to wish you all a happy and safe Christmas, and New Year period. Enjoy this time with family and friends.
More Time Away
I was posting a few Blogs and getting a few more ready when some bad news came through. Sadly I will be needing to take some more time away from the Blogs (immediately) – which is something completely unplanned and unexpected. This may be a lengthy break of two to three weeks. I’m afraid this is unavoidable and apologise for the time away from the Blog.
I’ll be taking a week off from the Blog (at this stage – may be longer) due to a resurgent CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). I have been battling this ‘outbreak’ for about 6 weeks and there has been very little improvement, so I need to take some ‘health time.’ Back when I can be.
Taking a Week Off
Hi readers 🙂 Just a quick note that I’m going to be taking a break from Blogging here for the next week or so. So I’ll be back soon enough. Thanks.
