    We did that on honeymoon. Our crazy arse driver ‘Hank’ kept on pulling alongside these enormous gators and patting them on the bloody back. Claiming they were quite docile in the morning!! He was a bloody lunatic.

    We went to the Everglades on one of those airboats many moons ago, on an “organised “ trip, looking for gators without much luck, until the captain ( more the steerer ) thought it would be a good idea to pull up a soft shell crab out of a pot strategically placed for this purpose. Well a gator got a good whiff of the crab and rose out of the water like a f.....g salmon about two foot from the boat , turning the nine people on board to fear for their lives. Fun times.

    This year;
    80’s weekend in Skegness (Stag) Two weeks ago.
    Kilnwick Resort , for a long weekend that includes the wedding ( I’m Best Man, wish me luck)
    Dubrovnik in April
    Canada in August
    Turkey in October

    Have fun wherever and whenever you go .

    Must be the same. Those bloody boats ear defenders essential, though I wish at times he’d given out blindfolds as well.

    Dubrovnik is very nice. I’m sure you’ll enjoy that.

    Weird place

    Went from plastic safety of Disney to midnight in a swamp relying on the Clampetts’ rougher cousins...not a pair of shoes or a full set of teeth between them!

    Bloody hell , I remember they didn't wear shoes...any of them. It was like a scene from Huckleberry Finn. Nor where there much touristy buildings selling ****. Just ticket huts and gator wrestling pits.

    Totally bonkers.

    Probably looks like Disneyland now.

    I hope not.

    Memories eh ? Priceless

    We went on Billies swamp safari down in the Everglades, which was the Same airboat, find gators type of experience as everyone else, though they did maybe do a bit more education on it about gators and such like.
    They did say that normally a gator wouldn’t attack a human unless food was becoming scarce for whatever reason. There was a herd of hogs that spent all day in or at the waters edge, and the guide or whatever he was, said in his 10 years he has been there he has only known one of them to have been taken by a gator.
    On the way home we stopped at a petrol station, and while my mate filled the car up i had a little walk to stretch my legs over to a fence where i saw this.... Gator Sign.JPG

    Everything is big in the States. Imagine the size of the baguettes needed to accommodate these buggers when BBQ'd ! A bucket load each of mustard & ketchup too. They recommend Bud Lite to accompany.

    I'm already in holiday mode to be honest. On Thursday we are off to the Dominican Republic for a couple of weeks of all inclusive sun.

    We've also got Easter booked too with another fortnight in the Maldives.

    Very likely. I go coarse fishing on a small lake at a naturist campsite near Spilsby.
    80 is probably the average age :)
