Day 5 - On the road

Hills, Hills, Hills and more Hills

sunny 40 °C

The hills coming out of Adelaide are insane, but the scenery OMG...Breath taking, especialy driving right between 2 cliffs, make's you feel alive. The car's transmission NO LIKE it though. Over heated again, like going up darling ranges. So we are on Princess Hwy, Melbourne bound. We will make it there by about 9pm i think. It's a beautiful day, hot and sunny. The down fall to these hills are you ears hurt, every now and again they pop and everything is super loud. Like when in an aeroplane. I have a few more pictures that we have taken along the way, and i will post them tomorrow sometime. So the plan is to leave Melbourne monday morning, then make it to Airlie beach in 2 days. Then the job hunting begins. Still keeping fingers crossed about the job that Shane heard back from before we left.

If U can make it from Melbourne to Airlie Beach in two days, U deserve a medal... the only way u will make it in that time frame would be to drive 24/7.... its about 11 hours from brisbane to airlie... cant see u getting out of Melliebourne through NSW in one day.... unless your beast has wings....

Yeah I was looking at that just before, trying to map out the way that we are going...3 days more like it...we managed to do 1040 kms the yesterday, but mind you we were buggered by the time we finished. And that was in about 13 hours i think it was! if it was only 2000kms instead of 2500 i recon we could have just scraped it in 2 days, but the extra 500kms add's alot in the long run!
