    I was driving the Kombi out of our garage this morning to air it out after a pretty wet weekend away and spotted this python in our front garden. Pretty cool, it just laid there completely still for ages. BC3F22EA-B64E-4F83-BCBC-79D6852EFA6A.jpeg

    Tis a small eyed snake. Venomous but small mouth as well so not too challenging. Head is a lovely shiny black.

    I do admire all your admirable comments of the slithery species above.

    I seem to only get aggressive Eastern Browns in my garden, which I’m sorry....... are far from “lovely”. :(

    They really don’t play well, with pets or kids.

    Nothing better to do so thought i would see how new fridge works (how much power does it use while driving. well im pleased to say it works well and draws very little power .
    I do not have duel batteries and have been driving for 3 hrs .There is no sign of the crank batt struggling to start the bus.:) just been having lunch by the lake at Meningie

    @chris taylor
    What brand did you get?
    I bought an Eva Cool and really happy with it
    draws bugger all power
    I dont have "dual" batteries - but a 2nd battery
    I can get a sold 3 days camping without relying on plugging it into the car

    Well as i see it Alpal, lake Albert is part of the australian bush and a perfect place to stop and have lunch, and testing out the new fridge was a perfect excuse going there .
