Hello Timely, ATS Readers, Writers,
Wow, hello again there..
I always knew that poor bloke was crazy. That video proves it. Sad to say, but I always figured his luck would run out someday. Poor bloke..
You are a nutter Timely..lol Crack me up! Heck the blue bottles are bad enough, they stain the beaches too.
Surfing with great whites, oh yeah..lol... NEVER! My mate used to do it all the time! He sorta quit surfing when his surfing partner got his kidney
ripped out by the surfboard fin.. Them things are razor sharp! Now he just makes them for sale. Hand made wooden veneer boards.. GORGEOUS! Sells them
down around the Gold Coast Surf shops. Besides him being over 60 kind of slowed him down a bit too.
I laughed nervously at some of the posts further down in the thread.. about huntsman spiders! HA! They give me the creeps too! Especially when they
surprise you.. There was one about the size of my palm, I was headed out the back door to go down the stairs to get some laundry..The screen door
closes a bit and there about 5 inches from my face is this huge bugger Huntsman!! Eating a good size spider and spitting chunks of it out! We meet
each others glare my 2 eyes to his 8 or ten, or however many they got, but I saw everyone of them staring at me!
Then the %^*$%* started shaking and vibrating like he was gonna jump on me!! Well, my arse chickened out!! LMAO! I ALMOST screamed like a girl.. but I
moved down the stairs like Fred Estaire man!
AH YES, the LEECHES!! Great friendly little buggers there too...Since I live in a rainforest, I have had a few pints removed by them already...ONE
trip without bushmans spray was enough to learn my lessons!! HOLY CRAP mate... you bleed forever after the damn things let go.. My wife had 4 on one
foot.. thought she was gonna need a transfusion after that trip. I TOLD HER we weren't dressed for the trip in the forest, but NOOOOooooo she had to
She LOVES bushmans spray now..lol.
Dang near lost one of my dogs to those pesky paralysis ticks too!! Fricking $500 vet bill... arggh.
My wife and I just LOVE the bushwalks, despite the critters you run into sometimes, gotta get her a camera too though...LOL. When I get the bucks to
do it.. We have taken some awesome photos together.
I gotta teach her to QUIT grabbing the vines for hand holds ...She always manages to shake some creepy thing down on me or her when she does it! And
even if she doesn't manage to shake something loose, you think something fell on you anyhow..One time she grabbed one and a BIG palm frond came down
right behind me!
Dang near left a brown streak in the trail..LMAO! I thought Yowie had my arse for sure for a nanosecond! Maybe it was one of them dropbears! HA!
Under the canopy, so dark the camera almost wont take a picture unless a shutter speed of 1 second or so is dialled in. Bright sunny day, but really
dark under it all. Werewolves and vampire territory.. spooky stuff.
WE saw some red legged pademelons this last outing. They are a little kangaroo looking critter that lives where there is lots of rocks. Cagey buggers,
HARD to get a picture of, but we finally got a partial picture of one.
Garth It will be in my next OZ update for folks. Along with a pretty big goanna lizard. And a Bower bird.
Great scary input to the thread.. just HAD to remind me didn't you all!! Argghhh.
