80s baby too. Grew up on farms playing outside from dawn til dusk, fanging around the farm on push bikes no helmets. Fell off into a coil of barbed wire one day. Got chased by the bull.
Playing/swimming in & around the irrigation channels.
Rode on back of ute/truck/tractor trailer unrestrained.
Licked bowl/beaters regularly regardless of raw egg content (I let my daughter do this).
Rode the 2ks to the school bus stop (from age of 8 this was on narrow country roads with trucks). We just had to be vigilant & yelled at each other "truck, get off the road!" whenever one came along.
Went playing/walking/riding in the scrub by the creek/river unsupervised.
Played hide & seek at night in the yard.
