Gday Muzby,

That might not be a bad problem to have. I just need to get there first.

Must be still waiting for that truck to be pulled out of the Jardine River.

Greg - if it is any help I got back from the Cape about 4 weeks ago. Roads were all in pretty good nick with more and more bitumen sections appearing. There is even a 10km section of the Southern ByPass Rd that is now paved. You won't hit the dirt until just south of Laura where they are currently building a high level bridge......this, together with all the other roadworks going on up there, that the next time I'm up that way (usually go every 3 years) I'm likely to have bitumen all the way to Weipa.

Hi Patrol22,

Just the sort of info I was looking for. Was up there in 2005 and am off again next week.

Hi Ray,

Thanks, my newish suspension will get a good tryout then. I guessed that the roads would be a bit worked over by now.
