Re: I have a newfound respect for all you Aussies...
Disregard what toadmc said.
Drop bears are all too real.
On arrival in this terrible beauty of a country I was warned about them.
And believe me, I listened.
The first time I walked through bush I looked up, all the time.
I tripped on a log, barked my shin; it hurt like.......
But not for one second did I stop looking up.
Because that's when they'll get you.
You've been warned.
Or become a tall story!
