Delivery 2
















 I don't understand how people can live in this part of the world.


Having said that, it's probably the wrong time of the year to be travelling south, and apparently this cold snap was unusual.

It's been bloody freezing, and when it wasn't freezing,it was wet. In Queensland, especially North Queensland, being outdoors in the rain can be pleasant, but here, it reminds me of the line in the poem -
"And if misery man could vex
There it beat on our bended necks"

Enough whingeing - this is supposed to be about the car.

The car's been great. In fact, the colder it became, the better it seemed to perform. The heater works very well.

The sun came out at Hay, and it looks like tomorrow will be sunny.

But today, the wind felt as if it had come straight from the Antarctic.

No wonder the Mexicans come up our way in Winter.

Hay is rather flat and boring. Last time I went through there, even the crows sitting on the fence lines looked bored out of their scones.

I drove a 20 year old car across the Nullarbor back around 1992. About 100km out of Sydney, it started to lose power. By the time we hit Campbelltown, it was running on 2.5 cylinders (out of 4). Required a complete engine rebuild - yes, the smoke managed to escape. It had no air, no power steering - no nothing. Air consisted of sticking an arm out the window. It was a very interesting trip.

May your Toyota be as boring and uninteresting as a Kevin Rudd speech.

Imagine how much colder it would be if we didn't have this global warming thingy

Didn't see any crows. They're intelligent birds and were sheltering somewhere out of the weather.

Global warming? Never happen - Bob Katter will outlaw it when he becomes PM.
