Inspired by Poghe! :-)
1961 in northern Queensland.
"Shoot kangaroos" they told us, "1/6d a pound. Just wait at the road junction and a refrigerated truck will turn up , collect and pay you". We waited and waited and waited and finally left the stinking carcases behind some trees in the 35°C heat.

The people in the photos Gandalf?
Well I'm still here, the bearded one was ensnared by an English siren and lives in Norfolk, the other one is dead. And 'Turangi' the Landrover (means 'wanderer' in Maori)is lost and forgotten but a fond memory. :-)
