Hi, I have just been up to the tip of Cape York and found a NSW number plate in a creek crossing.

The first three letters are AOS. If it is yours then reply to me with the other three and we can organise to get it back to you. Otherwise I will hand it in to the RTA.

cheers.

That's very kind of you. Sure you didn't find the rest of the vehicle in that creek also ? :))))))))

I left Sydney 29th may.
Headed to weipa.
The worst section of road was between coen and musgrave. Lots of roadwork and quite slow travelling.

We took the bypass road. No hassles. Only my second trip up the cape, but from my travelling partners, they thought the roads were a dream, best they have ever seen. But that may have been because we were quite early and they have not yet been destroyed by many many vehicles!!!

When we called into morten (????) station, just over the wenlock river, they told us we were only the 14th group to call in. So we were quite early in the season.

The only thing I would comment on is the lack of consideration of other drivers whilst passing.

Seems that now the roads are better, vehicles are better, air conditioned etc, that no-one gives much consideration to anyone else when passing any more.

The roads are good so people driver quicker.
Cars are good so people drive quicker.
Cars are air conditioned so people don't have to breathe in the dust.
Cars are more powerful so people tow their trailers (camper or boat).

Because we were so early we passed hardly anyone on our way up. When we were returning we passed more cars towing trailers in one day that the total of vehicles for the whole trip. I think we passed maybe 35 to 40 vehicles, 20 + with trailers.

Problem was that everyone is stuck in thier own little world of their car and thinking nothing but.... get to the cape.

NOT ONE OF THE TRAILER TOWING VEHICLES WE PASSED SLOWED DOWN.

Now they might be fine in their A/C cabin, with the stone guard on the trailer, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE POOR BUGGER YOU JUST WENT PAST AT 80 OR 100KPH???

Has everyone forgotten about stones being thrown up by tyres? No one has any consideration about "the other bloke" anymore. When passing other vehicles on dirt roads, please slow down. It minimises busted windscreens, chipped vehicles and faces full of dust.

Other than that I had a great trip.

sdr00y,

I know that it will be many years before you go back up there anyway : - )

By then, with the gas pipeline going through, it will most likely be tarred road all the way to The Tip = No rocks being thrown up !!

That's an even worse scenerio !!!!!!!!
