Den Run you ask? Yes, the Den Run. Our nearest alcoholic beverage provider is about 40 something kilometres from here, which kinda sucks when the road is all chopped up during and after the Wet season. Well, by September at the latest, we won’t have to worry about washouts, or truck eating potholes, or bogs that breed those bog monster thingies from Labyrinth. We’re getting some of that new fangled ‘Bit-U-Min’. I took these pics back in May, during a rare break in the late season rains. I was the first vehicle bogged on the roadworks :). Not sure if I should be proud of that or not. This series of images were taken on the 25th of May 2014. They are just a personal historical record to remember days gone by. Days of 5 hour drives to Cooktown, 75km away. Days of waiting for the road to dry before venturing to the pub. Days of doing 30km/h or less because so many rocks had been exposed and to go any faster would doom your suspension to destruction.
I meant to post these pics a while ago, but you know how it goes. I’ll take some updates in the next couple days to compare progress since the rain stopped a few weeks back.
