Tribulus terrestris (aka Caltrop/3 cornered Jack) 4-Jan-2010 At 3:17:29 PM The Keeper
Without a pic, I assume it the nasty little beast I encountered between Perth and Merredin - I rolled into a little community and went into a pub for something to eat and a brew - an old geezer remarked that I had a flat tire on my cart - I went out and checked and sure enough. Ended up fixing three flats in rapid succession and finally clued in when I stepped on one I had brought into my room inadvertently and which was sticking in the carpet. Apparently, when I pulled off the highway for a bivie or rest - the tires would roll over these dudes and that was it. They are quite nasty . I guess I need Kevlar inner tubes in the cart wheels for the next section. Hmm, aphrodisiac eh?
Maybe I should collect a bunch and I could use them with good effect in the Great Aussie Death Zone -southern Queen'sland. Wouldn't want the great insurgency petering out there.
