Jul 27, 2013 - A Drive Around the Tablelands

Driving out of the caravan park the sun has decided to show up. Oh well luck of the Irish. We are heading to Lake Eacham, Blue is hoping to get some fishing in. Lots of traffic on the road today. We had one holdup at roadworks otherwise smooth sailing. Well mostly one idiot that tried to do us in. Overtaking while towing a van in an unsafe spot even the truckie was shocked. Had an early lunch stop at...

Jan 22, 2005 - Nephew Nathen and Uncle Brian

Standing on the street in Cairnes in the morning there are three types of vehicles you can observe on the road. The small tour bus picking up 8 people. THe medium tour bus picking up 20 people and the large tour buses picking up 50 people. Each bus has the tour company name on the side and wild pictures advertising their offerings. These buses pick up tourists from their hotels/hostels and take them on varying degrees of adventures. The level of adventure is usually inversely related to the size of the bus. We generally hung out on the 20...
