    You all nearly lost me this morning. Was gardening and got bitten by a 5 foot Brown Snake. Killed the snake and raced to hospital with the dead snake to make sure I got the right Anti venom. Am ok and out of hospital now. Had a snake guy around and found 6 baby snakes that he took away.

    The thrills of living in Australia hey!!!

    Ooouuujj! That´s why I´d never go visit Rally Australia. Have heard so many stories about what to do and not to do when spectating, from friends who have been there years ago.
    Glad you´re ok. Suppose you have well trained routines for such happenings!

    FAWK! Fawk fawkin poinsonous snakes, man! Never been down ther but was in South Africa many years ago--in fact that was my last professional racing--and we got the big warning about Black Mambas, Green Mambas, Boomslangs and various other fawkin kill you on the spot delights.....and we're doing moto-cross so wallowing around in the dirt--on the edge of the bush...last day in Port Elizabeth one of the gardeners found just 2m from where we had been sleeping out a big fawkin whatever the fawk---

    Are those buggers tricky? Or were you stomping around in scubby bush to not see?

    My parents have Grass snakes at their house but luckily not dangerous unless you are a small frog or something like that.
    Also luckily for the snakes, we don't have a dog nowadays. When I was little we had a dachshund and while grass snakes are
    fast our dog managed to hunt and kill a grass snake.
    ...Funny how ev'rything was roses when we held on to the guns...
