Ran over a red-belly black snake this morning at cascades - I saw it going for me - You're lucky I'm still here to post this!

OK mate, where abouts was it, on the fire trail or on a section of single track somewhere?

If you ask me, just another good reason to stay away from the hills that are the Cascades.

You’re in luck. To my knowledge you don’t die from these snakes, just get sick. You’re most lucky that the National Parks and Wildlife don’t fine you for dangering our precious fauna! You mean horrible person Eye-wink

For more local info goto:

If I spell you're name wrong again I send you a case of Beer, Sorry Mate.

What do you mean? did it wrap around your leg?

I admit I too would then need fresh undies.
