We have both had “gurgly” tummies off and on over the last few days. Nothing debilitating but still not good. Barbara mentioned she had the same when we were at Mataranka. We are not sure if it is the water we have been drinking or a virus going around, so just to be sure we have decided to give all our water bottles a good clean and sterilise them with a baby bottle sterilizing treatment. We routinely wash the bottles out a couple of times a week so we are hoping this extra soak will remove any bacteria lurking in our bottles.
This afternoon Mark went and interviewed a young fellow he met outside Woolies on Friday afternoon whilst I was doing the shopping. He is a young Defence Indigenous Development Program (DIDP) recruit with Norforce. Norforce or the North-West Mobile Force is one of the Australian Army’s three Regional Force Surveillance Units responsible for the surveillance and reconnaissance of the remote areas of northern Australia. A number of years ago we did some work for Norforce and heard about the then plans for the DIDP program so we thought this would be a good opportunity to find out what impact the program is having on the ground.
