    Just thought I'd share a few pics of a property I mowed this week!

    Heres a view of the hole hill! The area under the track is where the other pics where taken.

    See the Kangaroos? ;)

    Make this the last one.

    Heres looking down the hill from not quite the top. All the grassy areas had to be mowed.

    Took 6hrs, the property total is 10acre but obviously not all was mowed. Couple of rainforest pockets, bush, dam, unmowable areas. Probably 7-8 acres mowed.

    Was very scary at times!

    Dang, you're lucky you didn't end up in that little billabong at the bottom of the hill!!!! That is some beautiful county, would love to see it firsthand some day. Good job!

    Except for the nude beaches, I don't miss Australia. Particularly after seeing a goliath bird-eating spider. Did love New Zealand though. Almost as many fellow bagpipers as back home. I know you lot despise the Kiwis. Some Maori went mad while I was there but apart from that we had a great time. Also when we got "snot-slingin' drunk" and ate kangaroo tail ( quite good,I remember) was fun. But you can keep the snakes and spiders and those little octopi as well as the monstrous crocs that kill everyone.

    Forget about the Hill. I want to know about that John Deere that mowers without a driver!
