Someday I will get down there.

So you learnt how to take the piss, not to put dibs on yourself, laugh at danger and real meaning of free speech.

Here's a condensed joke that should bring back memories:

Two swagmen (hobo's) are walking along an outback road when they come upon an animal carcus. They spend about two minutes looking at it and move on. Later that night while waiting for the billy to boil, one of them says to the other "that donkey must have been hit by a road train". His cobber looks at him in suprise and says "that wasn't a donkey it was a horse". They both pause to think and then bed in for the night.

The following morning the one of them rises to find the other gone. He finds a note next to his bed roll, which reads:- " I leaving, there's too much bloody arguing in this camp!"

I could always take the piss but was never very good at giving it back. While I love jokes and can laugh at myself, I don't retain them often so I usually have to resort to what I know about the person.

The craziest time I had was when I was biking (bicycle) up a mining road (gravel) that was built on the side of some hills. This ausie pulls up in a Landcruiser pickup and asks if I wanted a lift. So I thow the bike in the back and hop in.

We start heading up the road that has about a 50 foot drop off the left side. I'm not sure how fast he was going but at every curve the a$$ end of the truck was kicked out. Were talking, drinking (he had offered me a beer and how could I refuse), and then he starts rolling up some local smoking product.

I will never forget the image of this guy, beer on the dash, both wrists on the top of the steering wheel, his hands rolling a joint, all while he was drifting around a corner where one little mistake would have sent us down a 50 foot hill. Gotta love it.

Danger.......bah!!! Bring it on.

Wow! Thanks for reminding me of the second most important reason I live where I do. We have a 1600 sf home (too big for me), 2200 sf barn, five nicely fenced horse pastures, an 80' x 150" horse arena, 2500 square foot shop and some other various outbuildings. Very secluded at the end of a private road and two sides are bordered by a 25k acre state forest. No Wal-Mart across the street for me ever and all of it has been built in the last few years. Oh yeah, we have maybe $150k invested in it.
