Don't they have cars in Esperance?
They haven't progressed past the horse drawn carriage yet.
Esperance's idea of traffic congestion is when two cars are waiting at the boomgates for a grain train to go through instead of one.
Actually 'traffic' here is when the whole town's inhabitants drive in their dual cabs to the newsagent on Saturday morning to buy the papers - there's just not enough roadside angle parking for 10,000 4WD utes to all park outside at once.
Or their dogs. Don't forget the dogs in the backs of the utes. And the sea of flanno shirts, blue Levis and the Blundstones or RM Williams if they are effluent.
Speaking of which, I hope you avoided it on your Thur (no toilet stop) ride!
Yes there was no effluent involved.
