After 275K of faithful service the injectors decided to chack themselves . So we are still waiting for parts from where ever . The travel on foot in 48.9C is not fun at all .  lts all part of travel  , if you cant afford to do it then stay home , watch it all on Foxtel , & shut up

MOTORISTS are advised of changed traffic conditions on the Oxley Highway between Toms Creek and 85 kilometres west of Wauchope due to extreme heatwave conditions.

Walcha Council will use water from the Yarrowitch River in water carts to cool the bitumen pavement which is currently melting due to the extreme heat.

Drove past this occurring on Friday on this very same road. I asked the wife why she thought they were doing this as the road looked fine to me. Was stinking hot though at 34C  ::)

How do they think roads out our way and beyond have survived over the years with 40C+ temps
