Good News for FOMO’s

Many times we’ve camped at Skipworth Reserve south of Jamieson in Victoria’s Upper Goulburn Valley but there has been no mobile phone service and the nearest communications was at a phone box outside the Kevington Pub, 4 kilometres away. Thinking back, the last time I used a phone box was probably at that very one back in 2014. And on several occasions I’ve driven 7 kilometres back to Jamieson township to publish a blog post via the ipad or phone.

Now thankfully mobile service is available part way up the valley, to the joy of Facebook tragics like Woody and more importantly, in the summer to keep track of bushfire emergency warnings on the Vic Emergency app.
