Relating to the "weather' thread, I posted  a pic of our camp in 'distress' Here's some more.

From the camp on Friday,just cracked the first beer. Got there on Friday to make a 3 nighter out it.


Carpet snake enjoying the sun.



Our friends the Quailes brought this hitchhiker with them. Wolf spider, I think. What I know is that it was over 4 inches across.

I hope the Quailes and their friend the wolf spider live a long way away from Sydney.....a long long long way away. I don't think we get those critters here.

Now we're talking ...... creepy crawlies, right up my ally as this is my main hobby (for over 40 years) used to breed tarantulas and true spiders as a side business, just have the adults now ... and we still have and breed pythons (one of which is an Australian species)

As hard as it can be to identify exact species from photos ....
the carpet Python is (or has) a coastal pattern. Scientific name is Morelia spilota (possibly sub-species"McDowelli" if your interested)

The spider is a "huntsman" (female) more than likely Delena cancerides tis a nasty bite you'll get from that, not so much the toxicity but from the mechanical damage and bacteria around the mouthparts getting into your system (ask me how i know)

Nice campsite by the way, just how i like them .... sparse!! :)

Those photos just make me want to throw a sleeping bag on the ground and spend the night.   
I don't know how you guys do it.  All we have to worry about is Rattlesnakes, bears and mountain lions.  Guess it's all in what you are used to.

Wasn't spare for long,alas. Plenty of punters turned up by Sat night. All were well behaved,even the dogs! No mindless "dush dush" music either.
Brought the cricket bat & had a hit & a giggle.

Nice to get out in Nature once in a while and remember we share the planet with all the rest. Lovely hills and trees at the camp.
