Things to Remember

I had to make an emergency road-trip to the Western Desert over the past two days. It was a 1300kms (808miles) round trip. These are the things I already knew but was reminded of on that trip:
  1. The complete incredible wonderfulness of my parents and my sister Dette (well, she isn't actually my "sister" but she is closer and more important to me than just a best friend).
  2. Black coffee and licorice allsorts do not make a good breakfast.
  3. Overtaking 37m (121') road trains is made easier by long straight roads (see above) and sweet truck drivers.
  4. You can find incredible beauty anywhere...although it was easier to appreciate on the return trip while my precious love was back with me.
And one thing I didn't know till now:
  1. When you're alone and frightened the "Free Coffee for Driver" signs can make you feel like you are loved and supported by the whole of humanity (although I didn't avail myself of the offer....yuck!)

  1. Thank and ditto.
    Glad to hear you are back...Yes those coffee signs are a nice idea but I think you were right not to drink it as it is not as lovely as the sentiment behind the idea.
