How a 1500km trip can be mistaken for a 61km trip is beyond me? :laughing6:

I'm not even going to go there Kim.

My blonde girlfriend would string me up.

Actually come to think of it, I have no problems with her stringing me up...it sounds like a lot of fun! :cherry:

I have a friend who had to deliver a machine to a client in Melbourne,he took 13 hours to drive from Canberra to Melbourne.
He entered into his GPS the destination in Melbourne and left just after daylight however as he was approaching Wallan in Victoria the sun was getting low on the horizon it was then he realised that the GPS had included Points of Interest on the route needless to say he didn't make the delivery that day.

On the way from Canberra to Nowra, gps guided me through Braidwood and I drove 50km of unpaved road because the navigation was inadvertently set on the "shortest route". I realised that only few days later after it dragged me through the farm roads around Bowral on the way back to Syd.
If the road from Braidwood to Nerriga did not have the sign of the roadworks next 10km, I'd probably return. Bumpers suffered the most.

But driving from Nerriga to Nowra was a well worth the earlier trouble.
60km of deserted well-paved well-cambered curvy road that stretches the speed limit to its prima facie maximum well over the double the freeway limits.
Mind you, I never broke the speed limit (set by the engine management).
