My postie is leaving on 1st July and headed north to CY. He's a bit worried about the track after all its recent problems.
Has anyone heard from anyone up that way at all ? What is the main drag like, rough or just a nightmare ?
I havent been game to tell him the details of the grog restrictions yet. I'll get him to ring up and find out for himself :))))))))
Had to explain that the 5 ton limit on the Weipa road didn't mean that you had to have a 5 ton truck to get through !
