Looks like a nice enough part of the world. It's very quiet in your cab.

Cheers,

mate that trip is just on 10,000 ks in 6 days as a two-up team in 5-6 hr shifts, I have no trouble focusing I do extra long miles in my Troopy Brisbane to Canberra in 13hrs straight through Brisbane Mt Isa in 18-19 hrs now worries. I carry 270 ltrs of fuel in my Troopy so I have around 2,000 klm range.The road train Has around the same range, but at 64 ltr per 100 ks it costs a bit every fill :D I love just follow the white line mate I listen to music or Audio books ect or just enjoy the passing scenery. After about 9,000,000 + ks it just comes naturally I guess :D :D

Hey Rat I love how when you stick a common person in the passenger seat, they remark at the end of the day, how the hell do you do this every day, I'm stuffed! :lol:
