Welcome to my home page.
This website reflects some of my many and varied interests. I have a
lot more interests than are in this site. As a result available time to
develop the site is limited. Consequently, the site is, and is likely to
remain for the foreseeable future, a work in progress. Expect to find
some things missing, but I hope you find some things here that are of
interest and/or are useful.
Blueprints is my section of the site dedicated to things engineering.
As a professional mechanical engineer with over 28 years (but who's
counting?) of experience, I've included some little engineering aids,
spreadsheets, CAD files and the like.
Visions contains some of my photographic images, particularly
landscapes and panoramas.
Out of this World is about astronomy and my developing interest in
astrophotography. I am a newbie to astrophotography so the images that
appear here are the highs on my learning curve!
Where and How? contains information and resources from over 25 years
in search and rescue, particularly land search, vertical rescue, map
reading and navigation, etc.
The Bushwalker's Guide to the Galaxy
is all about improvised navigation. Revised and expanded from my
original webpage, the BWGG is offer free to anyone who enjoys
the great outdoors in the interest of preventive search and
rescue. Learn how to find your way with less than a compass or
Random Thoughts is just that. Miscellaneous stuff that doesn't fit
anywhere else in my site particularly.
