“You have never met any one of these people in real life?”
People who frequent the desert? No, maybe one or two, counting you! One of my former co-workers used to go rock climbing every year, but I don’t really know where he’d go to do that.
I take it you are in Australia? Do you really have bears there? A bear in the desert, that’s really too much.
How about the kangeroos, can/do they hurt people in real life? I assume they wouldn’t actually eat one. Of course, you’ve got the dingoes, we know about them! I guess they are cousins to our coyotes.
