If it looks like a stinging tree then it probably is a stinging tree. Trust your judgment and don’t touch it to confirm suspicions.

Hahaha. Nearly.
Thankfully we managed to get to familiar track that didn't need navigating before this realization came about. Headlights lasted just to the car too. Just a long day. Lol. It's always an adventure.

Don't take tactical utility belts bush bashing and expect everything to be there at the end.

Don't take anything scrub-bashing and expect it all to be there at the end. Including yourself.

Don't take tactical utility belts bush at all, unless you're, er, tactical?

I have learnt not to stand with my head close to my childs, while trying to point out a possums eyes in a headtorch if that child happens to be holding a stock fashioned into a spear and is prone to forgetting it is in their hands whilst swatting at bugs. My impaled eye is still watering.
