I had ridden from Maryborough, through Rockhampton and
got to Alpha after last light. I had been advised at
Emerald that the locals did NOT drive of a night
because of 'Road Kill' I was enjoying myself and hadn´t seen
any so continued. In Alpha I was told in no uncertain
terms that I was an IDIOT to continue and I proved them
right. I did, however, build in a safegaurd by asking
a Road Train carrying Fuel if he wouldn´t mind me tagging
on his tail. He agreed and we were off.
The locals were right ... road kill every 100 metres
or less around Barcaldine. This would have to be probably
the worst stretch of road for this in Australia.
