Amazing pics !! :shock:
I've always thought that you blokes down under have so much more to be scared of while in a recreational mode then we people in the States. :D
It must make it a lot easier and faster to get into a pucker factor number 10 adrenaline fueled state of mind ! 8)

Ha! In the past, many houses had an outside "dunny", and poisonous redback spiders used to live in these little sheds. 40 odd years ago, we had a hit record, which began...
"There was a redback on the toilet seat when I was there last night,
I didn't see him in the dark, but boy, I feIt his bite."

The little buggers have a shiny body the size of a pea, and their bite is very painful, but not fatal, so we tend to ignore stuff like that as we grow up...

Come to South Australia.
We have lakes so big you can't see land from the middle.
And no croks, alli things or sharks.
The odd snake can be run over without them climbing on board.
And look a the lovely mooring at the caravan park whilst contemplating the next adventure :wink:

I've often thought that if I were to ever leave this Garden of Eden State of California to live anywhere in the world, I'd pick your continent. 8)
Even if I had to learn how to speak English all over again. :D
