We took a day trip though the “outback” and drove past this sheep station. How many acres of arid land like this would it take to support one sheep? How many acres do you need to make a living?
It looks like the primary crop is rocks. Trees? You gotta be kidding. And water? Maybe next year.
Yet with all these limitations, Australians were tough enough and smart enough and committed enough to build a nation that’s the envy of the world.
And they laughed while they did it.
