Yes, my daughter studied about OZ and she really wants to go so I promised her that I'll take her to OZ soon. Also my son keep telling me that when I take them to OZ he wants to listen to that song (we come from a land down under) or some thing like that and he wants to chase some kangaroos at the same time Also I want to try your famous cookies, Mike Hippert baked some for us and it was great, but Iím sure itíll taste better there (no offense Mike). So Iíll take you up on the offer and I will let you know when we will be there.
I think you mean ANZAC biscuits? 3-6" diameter and flat? Asking for "cookies" in OZ will probably get you blank looks. ANZAC Day is the 25th of April, so that would be the best time of year to get really good ANZAC biscuits. But my wife has a pretty good recipe if you want it.

The best wheeling in OZ in South east Queensland/Northern New South Wales (About the middle of the east coast). Further south (Victoria) there is lots of mud and not as many rocks.

If you drive up and down the highways your son will see a lot of roadkill Kangaroos, but they don't run when you try to chase them .

This is what I used. The last Girl friend liked making cookies.

The live ones will run (jump) if you try and chase them, but if you are in a truck they are just as likely to jump towards the truck rather than away from it - so it isn't advisable. Hitting a fully grown kangaroo is like hitting a moose or a deer.

Over the years I have had one collision and one very near miss in the 110 - in both cases the kangaroo/wallaby decided to be suicidal and jump towards the truck rather than away. Fortunately they usually seem to be scared away by the noise from the ISUZU tractor engine. And the IIA doesn't go fast enough to collide with kangaroos .
