    All that @LoudOne mentioned, I'm capable of. I fined trucking in Australia fascinating but I know for me it probably will never happen. I would be honored to go on a ride along if I ever vacationed there for a couple of weeks.
    Btw, since we are on the subject of road trains, I haven't seen @Ozdriver post for awhile. Really enjoy his videos.
     
    LoudOne Thanks this.

    If you look at my profile page, on information section, that's what I say clearly since day one "No matter what, I get the job done"

    Hey. Good to hear from you. Hope all is well. Did you ever find that pesky air leak you had before taking a break from social media?

    I found a small leak from the exhaust port of the brake treadle valve, changed the valve and that's improved it a bit, but there is still a leak. It leaks all the air over a few hours now. It used to hold air overnight so there's still a leak.
     
    bigguns and orcen Thank this.

    Well your welcome to come over and give it a go i reckon one taste of our rough roads and you'll be running for the hills back to the USA. I regularly drive the Bruce Highway between Mackay and Rockhampton which is also Australia's national highway number 1 it shakes you up and down and side ways so bad its actually dangerous wearing a seat belt once i'm out of the city i take mine off. the other day the boss got me to deliver a load of cattle lick just the other side of Sarina range using the old Marlborough Sarina road i seriously thought the truck was going to fall apart the vibrations from the road were so bad i could not safely drive at 100 kmph (60 mph). I'd like to hear from other drivers as to what they'd consider the worse roads they've driven on. On the positive side if you happen to get an overnight run or change over just running from Sydney to Melbourne on the Hume that is as smooth as.

    There's a section of road over the blue mountains. From back of penrith -lithgow Bells line of road. Singles only, have to use a shuttle to get the b trailer over. Man that is tight bumby and a real B!tch in places!
