Remember the "Flying Foxes" .
I still remember one when i was a kid but haven't seen one for years now. They were used to cross rivers especially in flood time. They operated on a pulley system...very practical

When trip to town took all day - a stay over night and all day home...I think I know who these two are - well him but can't recall the relationship.
This is my Uncle Pat (Flanagan) He was a bit of a larrikan when he was young and mum told me he and his friends used to hoon about on their horses much as young guys do with cars today - he was a wonderful old uncle and a bit wicked so we loved him a lot. He could still ride his horse right up till he had a stroke at about 75.
