Here in the USA there's a running joke that everything in Australia wants to kill you, both land and sea. Of particular concern to a motorcyclist of course are the variety of landborn nasties: Oz has the world's most venomous spiders, most venomous snakes, all kinds of venomous insects, 14 species of giant pythons, crocodiles the size of trucks, suicidal kangaroos and wallabies, and even the silly platypus has a poisonous heel spur that can kill a human with one strike. So how do I as a foreign rider know when it's safe to pitch my tent for the night when I'm exploring the bush? I know any Aussie could taunt me with a similar question about kodiak bears, grizzly bears, black bears, brown bears, wolves, wolverines, cougars, rattlesnakes, coral snakes, water moccasins, black widows, brown recluses, alligators, and psychopaths with a firearm fetish, but I'm being serious. If everything Down Under is vengeful against humanity how can I sleep soundly at night when I'm riding through the bush? How do I even know where it's safe to pitch a tent?
