Rain, gravel road, mix well with car and trailer

After three glorious days camping at the Breakaways on the Hyden/Norseman road, last night it poured with rain , the result was the road became almost impassible, and officially closed to traffic, apart from us poor sods travelling out. Nearly got hit by an apollo camper towing a car trailer, he slid into the gutter and nearly rolled coming out alongside me. Three motorcyclists had an impossible ride out, one rider losing his bike in the mud, us slip sliding on some of the most slippery mud I have ever found. Average speed just 60 K,s and hour for 80 kilometres.

Gangsters and Muggers

I am starting to lose faith , and find myself surrounded by muggers. Recently I went on a trip and wanted to look at some old rusty harpoon and was confronted with a 39 dollar fee for the priviledge, eighty bucks for the wife and I . And a local river trip they wanted 85 bucks a head, man, I didnt want to take the boat home with me. I dont believe the going rates for stuff like that. Tourism , you want tourism? lift your game muggers! This country would prosper if it wasnt so bloody greedy. The other day I wanted some oil and a filter for my car, I found a filter in the local hardware, 62 bucks they wanted! Not even a genuine spare but a aftermarket one. Again 62 bucks! I went onto ebay and bought a pack of four filters for my vehicle for 41 bucks freight included! Buy local? Dont be daft, what a shame. Seems like its the “Norm”
everyone so hungry for a profit that in the end people just get jacked off with them and go Ebay. Sad indictment Australia. Want to prosper? Ned Kelly didnt win either!
