While we were busy loading up the eighties something mitsubishi ute for the trip ..
My cousin showed up... proceeded to ask what we were up to ' and that we explained....
After listening to our story and then questioning the density of the gray matter between my ears he offered us the use
of his F250 ... I explained that we were already towing a trailer and that towing a fuel tanker as well was out of the question, to that he replied ... It'll use less fuel than that "shitbox" your taking ... (had to cover Denis's ears after that one)
The F250 has an V8 International 7.3 litre powerstroke turbo deisel .and to my thinking it would use fuel faster than you could put it in.. But not so... If anything made that fruitless trip worthwhile it was that truck.
What's shut me up for the last couple of weeks is that I've been busy kicking myself. Not to be beaten by the rain at the Lake Gairdner we went of in search for the Lake with no Name . Working of memory alone ..
out the back of Bourke we went ,found what I thought was the write road and then travell the 35 kms to the end of the tarseal and "bingo" the lake.
Not so.... The tarseal did end at about 35kms problem was we were in quite dense bush, travelled another 5 or so kms up the road with Denis this time questioning the density of the Rock between my ears...
Gave up we did..
Once home ..Straight to 486 looking for the answer.
The tarseal ends twice and it was 35 miles not 35 kms....... Been kicking my own butt since
IT IS ALL A RACE AGAINST TIME.
TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE.
HOW FAST CAN YOU GO ?
