Started driving to Surfers from Melbourne last week and got to Shepparton to go up the Newel, was closed. So quick phone call to the Grey nomad parents and was told straight up the coast.
Awesome run until bout 450kms out then hit roadworks, 60-80ks for 250km. Was mid morning when i hit it . Still was an 18hr run.
Had a brain wave for the return trip and hit the road works at bout 1 am. Was a little tired and forgot to turn the cruise off thru the road works, was set at 97kmh. Once thru that damn cruise got stuck on 140kmh all the way back to Seymour. Only prob was the fuzz kept hiding behind trees and pulling me over hahaha.
Anyway 3 fines i know of so far, did the run in 15 hrs 9 mins.
Once those roadworks are complete , the newels a goat track to me
