The three staples of every lad in Melbourne in the 1950s were Vegemite, Vicks and meat pies. They would have combined them into the one application if it were possible.
As it was, the Vicks rub tended to go everywhere, so if you were applying it before making lunch, you would score a two out of three.
Vegemite, Vicks and lettuce sandwich anyone?

So, you put Vegemite and Vicks on meat pies? No wonder you Auzzies are so tough! Jeeesh!

Mike, don't eat the meat pies!!!!

Not being a Vegemite fan, does anyone know if Marmite works as well to ward off dangerous DropBears?
I am not sure that Marmite helps for Dropbears but it sure tastes better!
BTW there are differences (between Marmite and Vegemite) but to the uninitiated they can look identical.

If you want Marmite in Australia you will have to bring it with you - in the last year or so it has disappeared off the grocery shelves here in Oz.

And your croc is a real stand-up comic.

Ha,

Just been shooting 'stairway to the moon' tonight, just south of the Kimberley.

Chose a place called salty cove, long walk out through the tidal mudflats next to an estuary to set up the shot.

Must say I was thinking about the salties during the nice dark walk back to the shore after the shoot. Will bring a torch next time!

I've tried both (reluctantly) and recall both being equally awful. Is there any actual differences?

I would venture to say the risk of ingesting Vegemite far outweighs that of crocodile attack.  As between preventable catastrophes, not sure which I'd rather suffer.

Well why don't you experiment with both?

If you survive that experimentation, let us know how many limbs you come back with, ok?

Maybe you could try throwing your camera gear in first to see if the crocodile accepts expensive camera gear as a worthy sacrifice in place of human flesh...

Nothing wrong with Vegemite boys!

When I was seven down here in NZ my mum use to set me off to school armed with two vegemite and lettuce sandwiches  Cheesy

Them were the days.

I could pop over ditch to the land of Oz and make a couple for Michael and Kevin.   Wink

Dave, I was going to jump to the defence of our weather but that cold front that made a bit of a mess down there at St. Clair has just reached Christchurch.
So take me with you.
I'll bring the Vicks.

All I know is that I was watching Super15 Rugby on the weekend - was I glad that I was sitting in (relatively warm) Brisbane when watching the wind, weather, and rain in NZ.

Yes, well, we are a bit further south than you! However thanks to the Earthquake Commission I now have a heat pump. It's the first time I've been warm in a wooden house in winter.
Enjoy the sunny north! Here it's expected to hover around 0 degrees tonight. Let's call our weather "interesting".

We have had a few chilly nights, especially recently, but tonight in Brisbane the minimum will be above 10 oC.

Yeah guys, but Brisbane is about 2000 miles from the Kimberley trip location. The temp in Broome this week is supposed to range from 60F to 90F.
Meanwhile, it is going to be frosty in Tasmania tonight...

Nice picture but on a personal note I would keep the camera leveled to the horizon or do it in PSD or LR

But yet the verticals are vertical.

I'm more worried about the spelling of Cockatoo, Australia and Michael's.
