F*ck that sh*t, with gratitude

A warning issued on the entry signs of the Wodi Wodi track near Stanwell Park in the Illawarra.

As soon as I moved to Australia I started to “go bush,” as they say. In other words, I went for hikes on the beaches and wooded trails along the Illawarra escarpment. I was especially curious about a trail that warned of a big black cat. I eventually made a plan to tackle the trail, but it was a terrible plan. I got lost, and I was totally unprepared.
