Oh god dammit I wish I knew this club was going to exist earlier. I would have taken pictures of shit I've found wandering in the woods and stuff. Unfortunately I rarely do that anymore.
So for now I'm gonna post old pictures from when I went to Australia.
I went with a group of students on some school thing, which I guess isn't super important, but me and 3 other kids sorta formed our own group and did shit on our own that wasn't a part of the schedule of things to do. We would go off wandering whenever we had time and stuff.
For a couple days we went and stayed on a farm in the middle of nowhere, fucking forest for miles and miles, it was incredible. When we first got there, the bus driver bet us all $100 that nobody could catch a wild kangaroo. Of course everyone was excited as shit to go out and try to catch a kangaroo, but it wasn't long before everyone realized that just was not gonna happen.
While we were out wandering the woods looking for kangaroos, we had to climb through a few barbed wire fences, and on one of them, there was a dead beetle that got stabbed in the head by the wire. I'm not sure if it was flying really fast and just hit the wrong spot or if some kid was out there playing with it, but it was amusing. I know I have a picture of it somewhere but I can't find it right now.
Anyway, we kept chasing down kangaroos and of course not getting anywhere near them cause they are fast mother fuckers. Right when we were about to give up and head back, I saw a kangaroo hiding in a small bunch of tree and bushes. We got did our best to surround it so it couldn't run away as easily, and made sort of a triangle around it, since one lame ass friend decided not to join us. But we got up to it, and I guess it realized it was fucked and just sorta laid down. It was making a sort of panicked clicking noise, and looked ready to fuck us up, though, so we stood around it for a while trying to decide what to do.
If you've never seen a kangaroo up close, which we hadn't until then, their legs are definitely not the scariest part of them. They have giant fucking claws. Eventually my friend Michael got brave enough to try to tie it up with our jackets, which actually worked out perfectly.
So, we carried it about 2/3rds of the way back to camp before we gave up because it was too heavy, and set it down. Michael and Megan (the other friend), stayed with it just to make sure nothing happened, and I ran back to the farm and got the leader people to come back and check it out.
After they were all done being amazed, we untied it and let it go, and then we collected our $100.
I'm the one with the stupid look on my face.
