    Possibly stupid question of the week - do you get them in the wild in SA?

    No crocs, no pythons, no paralysis ticks, no cane toads, no stingers...they're all up north. We get redback spiders (poisonous but mostly shy), huntsmen spiders (not poisonous but a bit scary looking), white tip spiders (squish 'em!), brown snakes and red bellied black snakes (also shy and best avoided), the very occasional blue ringed octopus, oh, and great white sharks!

    We do have really bad drivers, generally known at P-platers they even advertise with a giant P in their windows. Please be advised to be wary of them, make sure you give them plenty of room (best to have them infront of you instead of behind you as they seem to drive so closely behind you they want to get in the car with you) , also the same rules apply for anyone driving a Ute, very dangerous (mod's can I use the term "nutter's")

    As the parent of a P-plater who is one of the best drivers I know, I'd disagree with this post! The ones I find most dangerous are Mums in huge fourwheel drives (usually with one of those ridiculous 'my family' cartoons in the back :mad:- like anyone else cares how many pets they have or what hobbies their brats have! )who think because they are in something that's built like a tank, they can drive all over the other road users!

    I thought it was bloody funny Stevo ........ but after 21 odd years here praps you and I have got an Aussie sense of humour now ..............................

     

     

     

     

    we do have pythons in SA ..... Woma, Carpet and Stimsonii pythons (Stimsonii are beautiful and make great pets - I want one) ...... but we also have sting rays, those awful giant orange centipedes and a whole plethora of deadly snakes (a lot of which live in the sand dunes at all of the local beaches as well as in gardens, parks etc which is why you should never let your kids play in the dunes).

    Great! Will add sand dunes to my list of 'things to fear'; as for crocs of the not -scaly wear on your foot kind, we love them :) never have understood how the huge furry Ugg boot became a massive international Australian export though???

    I bought my OH some UGG boots and she loves them. In fact she wears them all the time as they are so comfy and warm.

     

    She will definitely still get the use out of them once we make it to Oz as the house are cool in the winter!

    Couldn't agree with you more Diane, unfortunately they're exactly like that in the UK too! Not that they ever go off road - no further than the school run/supermarket!

    Well I could not disagree more. You both must live in the wrong areas.

     

    Most four wheel drive owners I know are responsible and actually use them for the purpose they were designed at least some of the time.

     

    Please don't tar everyone with the same brush!!!!!!!!:skeptical::skeptical:

    The majority of drivers tailgate round here - sooooooooooo annoying! (perhaps its because I drive at the speed limit)

    I can understand if they were a UK invention perfect for here but I just never equate Aus beaches and sunshine with the need for big furry boots :D

    There are quite a few months each year when ugg boots might come in handy here!

    Good grief what have I started. It was mean't as a Joke (Aussie Joke) Tyke is right, I'm driving around on the roads between 6 - 8 hours a day and I've seen lots of bad driving from all kinds of ages, groups of people but the majority of people out their are responsible drivers who are just trying to get to their destination without bothering or upsetting any other road users....
