bush bashing
 n.Note: According to the Macquarie Dictionary, “bash” is an Australian term for a cross-country trip. «Inspector Andrew Humberstone, in charge of the search, said Mr Meyer was a highly experienced bushwalker and was equipped with food, water, a mobile phone and GPS equipment when he set off. But Mr Meyer was known to hike off set tracks, he said. “He was known to go bush bashing, as they call it, through the scrub with his GPS, so it’s quite likely he’s somewhere off track at the moment.”» —“Hopes fading for missing bushwalker” The West Australian (Perth, Australia) Mar. 26, 2008.
