I just got a message from him saying he was at the halfway point and it had been a good drive.

He has some parts of mine he is bringing down so I have been keeping an eye on the roads.

Think he may be spending a night somewhere where it isn't raining.

I got stuck at the same point a couple of years ago on the DR, but the road to Banana was still open so I went that way.

The engineer just cleared the bridge for trucks and 4wd's once ses get here to man some stop-go signs. Should make it to Roma tonight, does anyone know someone with a spare bed I could crash on there for the night? I'm a cheapskate so would probably just sleep in the car failing a free bed.

More dammit!

Well I waited at the flooded creek for a few hrs, then they let through trucks and 4wd's so I went through... All good.

Then 60km from Roma, cough and splitter, car dies!!! It's 9.50pm and I only just checked into a motel in Roma... RACQ to inspect what's wrong in the morning.

I've been awake since 3am, tired and grumpy

No, just a creek that runs through town that flooded the worst two years ago.

Hahaha, don't worry, you'll get home, eventually

If you get out of Roma make sure you check the warrego at oakey.

So Ryan, if I was a betting man I'd say you were somewhere between Roma and Oakey ?, with nowhere to go, but please stay bloody safe.

My son was returning to work at Miles and couldn't get past Toowoomba today. Work called him and said it will be Thursday at the earliest he can get through so he returned to Brisbane.
