Lee Chenoweth


Life has been very interesting and exciting:

  • Near the Dartmouth Dam I have crawled onto a large tiger snake and had its head hovering just a few centimetres from my nose

  • I have been tracked by a large wolf while alone in Kazakhstan

  • In Uzbekistan I was captured by Islamic terrorists and later released without incident after sharing a sheep with them

  • At Benambra in the Australian Alps I have fallen over a cliff

  • Near General Santos in the southern Philippines I was targeted for a kidnapping but the kidnappers could not work out where my gun was (I did not have one)

  • In Kazakhstan I have watched a Soviet rocket launch into orbit

  • Near Boulia in Queensland had a fierce snake (desert taipan) between my feet while I cracked a rock next to its head

  • In Moscow I attended the Bolshoi Theatre with the Russian and Chinese leaders to see Swan Lake (the equivalent of a Royal Command Performance) performed by the Bolshoi Ballet

  • In northern Laos I sat on an unexploded bomb from the Vietnam War in a formal meeting with a village chief (many large bombs lined the central street through the village for use as seats)

  • I have undertaken successful industrial espionage over a new gold discovery in Queensland

  • I have been bitten on the top of my rubber boot by a large and angry brown snake, even though the ground was covered with snow and it should have been hibernating

  • I have eaten a meal in the same restaurant as Australia’s richest man at that time (Lang Hancock)

  • I was nearly shot in Laos when I blundered into a large opium crop ready for harvesting.

  1. Wow, that’s some interesting story Lee, I think its time for you to put your hand up and give all the blokes at OMNI and insight into your fascinating life story.
    Cheers
