    Lucky Escape From Crocs Nest.

    A stockman has told how he spent a week up a tree in North Queensland as hungry crocs waited below.

    Maybe I shouldn't be finding humor in this-but I LOVE the message he inscribed.
    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?

    He was interviewed on our local news, he was quite a character, I too found his message amusing.

    I don't quite understand the last couple of words in the message after " can pass a"... does it say "footy twenty"?
    What is that?

    I don't speak the language (haha!) but I think what he is saying is that helicopters are flying so closely by him every day that he could pass a "footy" to the pilots of the copters--the blind pricks who don't see him, when he is so close!

    Don't have a CLUE what a "footy" is.

    Note to self: When hiking, pack more than two sandwiches.
    FUN... is a renewable resource!

    What a sense of humor he has! Hilarious. Scary to be trapped by the crocs. I think I would given up long before he did though.

    That's an incredible story--can't believe he managed to stay up there seven days--but I know those crocs in the Northern Territories are some of the most vicious in the world so I can understand the fear--good survival story--Maybe Discovery Channel will do a "I Shouldn't Be Alive" episode based on this
