Skunk Cabbage
Though not in themselves palatable, skunk cabbage leaves had a zillion uses around the aboriginal kitchen. The unusually large leaves were ideal for lining and covering containers, lining steam pits, making fruit leather and sun drying seafood. Bears are known to bung themselves up by ingesting copious quantities of mud just prior to settling in for that long winter nap. Come springtime they seek out the laxative properties of skunk cabbage to -- stand back -- flush the system.

Playing around is always risky business but in the outback it is necessarily a seasonal affair. The grid below highlights in grey the seasons when activities in this book can be flirted with. Common sense would dictate that the duration of a season will vary year-to-year depending on about a gazillion factors like climate, snow pack, greenhouse gases, participants' abilities and conditioning. Whenever planning an excursion factor in current conditions rather than just blindly following the guidebook. Afterall, there is a big difference between visiting a mountain top in July and October. Plan for the worst-case scenario every time and you should be able to avoid serious trouble.
