Re the rain. If you did it in a 70s Kombi it would've been Bay Wetterer.
Not a fan of snakes either. You’d have to trip over/ stand on a tiger snake, corner or disturb them to make them angry, so if you keep alert, you’ll be OK.
There are more aggro snakes that don’t give you as much warning, and not the time to retreat.......
Facts from a local, Three types of snake in Tas. Copper Head, Tiger and White lipped snake. All poisonous, White lipped snake is tiny and you will rarely see it. Tiger and copper head can both be black (and no visible stripes) and also be red underneath.
Tigers are the nasty ones but most copper heads will run rather than bite. Make lots of noise as you go through the bush, they will avoid you.
Nearly everyone who gets bitten is trying to kill them. Back away slowly.
You'll be fine.
I was referring to the more aggro snakes of the mainland, not in Tassie.
Not poisonous, so safe to eat
No taipan or death adder ?
No need to be sorry, they still scare the bejesus out of you, and there are a lot of them. But not to the extent you need to be scared to get out of the car.
No,more snake talk please or I’m not getting out of this van again. I hate them but I always keep a look out for them.
So I shouldn't discuss how snakes seek shelter inside during heavy rain?
Been loafing around on Bruny Island past 3 days. Heading of tomoz to have look see on Mt Wellington. Then a few other things Cathy wants to see. Left home with a sore back and still in lots of pain. Only comfort is when lying down. Get out of work that way. Oh well, it will go away again when it’s ready. The joys of very heavy work when was younger.
Loved Bruny Is. the Cheese factory had an awesome menu and locally brewed ale as well....could’ve just stayed there
Mt Wellington is a nice loooong uphill climb for a kombi ! Pack a windbreaker, it can blow a gale up there !
Looks like the wife has just booked for a trekking holiday on Flinders Island
Should be interesting
Come on Brian. Snakes in SA. When we met first time at Princess Margaret Caves we were walking along a path and there was a snake warning sign, and right on cue there was a snake. Handy that it was signposted!
That was a snake warning sign....?
I always thought it meant , “winding road”.......
Sheesh, lots of big snakes in our travels then
I feel safe already.
Stay away from any tropical jungle in tassie Bwian.
