|When I lived up your way Vince I'd leave a light on and do the rounds of the house a few times a night, put the toads in a ice cream container and freeze them.|
That container was dropped by a few different people looking for a treat.
But the thing that made me jump the most was walking into a Golden Orb web while doing the rounds. To feel the lump of a spider on the side of your face as you walk into her web is a real bowel mover.
They are quite a large spider whose web strand per diameter is apparently stronger than steel.
I'd occasionally see a Koala Bear though.
|I've been known to up stumps and break camp at the sight of a leech.|
Just don't like the sight of all that blood, and not even knowing I was losing it.
|I camp in the bear woods often and alone, no matter how heavy is my pack, I always find room to take my "Bear kit".|
I have had some experiences with bears around my tent in the past, so I consider my precautions not too extreme.
All the best Watchmaker
