I have just read another post about Pooncarrie not having fuel.
I was told earlier this month that the one and only servo in Bollon had shut it's doors as there was not enough turn over. That means there is no fuel between St George and Cunnamulla along the Balonne highway, which is about 300kms.

I hope this prevents someone from running low and relying on Bollon for a refil

Cheers Kev

The servo did themselves no favours as the were dearer than Cunnamulla and St George by a long way and even the locals avoided refueling there. The locals just bought bulk fuel from St George instead.

Sir Kev
Startrack KYF00050 Dated 12th May 2005. I hope the truck does not go by Bollon and run out of fuel.

Ian,
I pick the package up tomorrow from their depot. I missed the delivery by 10 mins and they wouldn't let my next door neighbour sign for it, for me LOL

Thanks Sir Kev
Ill keep my eye on that one in case they try and charge me for a second delivery as that little bit is dearer than the overall charge.

I had one delivery i WA where the driver drove past the house and didnt stop and told them that no one lived there because there was no curtains on the house in Cunnanurra.

I found out a month later when Perth Depot rang me and told me no one lived there so I rang the woman and she answered the phone. So Perth to Cunnanurra a second time not on my bill thankyou.
The poor husband was in trouble he was working away and it was a birthday present for his wife at home and she didnt know it was coming and he didnt know she didnt get it and wondered why the cold shoulder on the phone. Lucky he was working away.

I rang them after I had missed them and told them I would pick it up from the Depot on Monday.

Thanks again for donating the stuff for the St George Gathering.

Cheers Kev

Hi everyone,
That is a shame, we free camped there 2nd last week in April it was the most friendly little town with the most fantastic camping spot planned to stay one day but ended up staying 2 nights. one of the locals even came out and gave us a couple of buckeys of yabbies, we had a great time, hope to write a review for one of the camping magc as they really want people to camp and spend a few dollars
