    G'day condo cruiser,

    it was very different to what we do over here,being homeless other than the truck and a motel when back in the yard also being under the eye of the company most of the time took away the enjoyment somewhat.
    i didn't get to see much other than loading docks and truck stops,if i did it again I'd do it different now I've seen what's what.
    all in all it was fun but not what I hoped it would be.

    The road trains mainly on run in the outback of Australia,bull bars are to save the trucks from kangaroos as the are suicidal most nights :)
    i wanted to see how you guys did it over there so I signed up and headed off,it was ok but my let down was not planning it well enough.... I'll know for next time.
