Notes to self

  • Never drive on Good Friday. Did it in 1989 going up the mountains and should have learnt my lesson then
  • Never drive the 5km between <3> and the F3. Find some other route.

    So traffic was fine until we hit the Pacific Highway, then it took nearly an hour and a half to get to the Hawkesbury River. Then it was fine again.

    We stopped in Newcastle to visit Stu's Grandma and Aunty Estelle. Then stopped at KFC for a late lunch.

    Then it was back to back to heavy traffic after Karuah. But unlike the ridiculousness of the highway in Sydney where it continually switches between two and three lanes, providing lots of opportunities for low-life pushins to ruin traffic flows for everyone else, they'd closed the overtaking lanes completely. So it was slow, but not at all frustrating because noone was pushing in and slowing everyone else down. Was thinking of writing to the RTA to thank them heh.

    So we're in Port now, had Chinese takeaway for dinner, and watched 10 Things I Hate About You.

    The Elders Real Estate Agent computer in Port Macquarie was having some problems. We giggled.
