Re: Home amongst the gum trees!

I know what you're saying bret! Even if it was 60 years ago! They told us we could sell roo meat to a refrigerated truck that would turn up at the spot in Queensland on a certain day. We sat there for 3 days in 35C heat and eventually left the whole stinking mess behind a tree!

These bloody things were all over the place! Give us Kiwis an earthquake or volcanic eruption but don't let us near snakes and other bitey things!
