You know what really, really pi%#£> , oops, sorry, PISSES ME OFF. Planning a trip for years, the missus wants to go to Cairns, so I say, we'll make a good trip out of it. I've always wanted to see the dinosaur stampede. We do Cairns, BEAUTIFUL! Get to Winton, drop the van off at the back of the pub ( very nice publican ), head off towards the stampede. 5 k's on the dirt, had to turn around. The road is used by road trains as well. IT WAS SO BLOODY ROUGH. Hasn't been graded in a hundred years. We have a four wheel drive, I tried 100k's, I tried 80k's, I tried 20, 10, 5 k's was ridiculous to do 100 kilometres at. So cheesed off, I turned around, picked up the van and drove all the way back to Townsville. STEAMING I was. We had a 24 pack of plastic water bottles in the back. When we pulled the bottles out of the plastic, they looked as though I had rolled them around on sand paper. Unbelievable, why can't they run a grader over it a bit more often? Sorry, but I had to vent!!!!
