A skill I have always wanted to have thanks to Malcolm Douglas, about time I learned a new skill.
I did learn about a native pepper bush in the Vic alps last year and used some when cooking up some freshly caught trout just metres away, that was pretty cool.

We have a pepper vine in the rainforest up here but if ya eat to much of it ya end up sh@tting yaself!! :lol:
I've run tours around the cape for about twelve years and bushtucker/medicine is a little bit of a obsession with me I love to teach the punters and to learn more every chance I get!! :drinks:

Learning and teaching are two things a person should never stop doing.

I hope to get up north within the next couple years for a look around the bush for some hunting adventures.
