Just what you don't want to hear from a recently repaired engine.

Are you heading straight to Sydney via the Sturt Highway?


If so give my old hometown (Balranald) a wave as you pass through, it's just as you cross the Murrumbidgee
and head on across the Hay Plains and onto Wagga or West Wylong, depending on which way you go.

Visiting family and will be home tomorrow!

Yes, did go though Balranald Peter. The Hay Plains are very "plain" aren't they; in fact much of the Stuart Highway is fairly boring.

The truckies hate going across that stretch of the Hwy Kevin, you either have a bad cross wind - a plague of grasshoppers - locusts or it is just plain bloody hot. In some places you even struggle to see a tree.


Is the Triton still making a racket up front?

So, one month after the breakdown I am finally home! I took the Triton straight to the local service centre where they are checking it over, including a strange rattling sound coming from the front of the engine.
