I can’t believe I finally made it to Melbourne. I never thought I’d get here, after everything I had to go through on the road from Sydney. So, it kind of feels like I’m being chased by the rabid rabbits, because they’ve now invaded New South Wales as well. I’m glad I’m on this road trip, because I can stay one step ahead of them. Maybe by the time I’m done with this job, I’ll be able to head back home and the rabbits will have already been dealt with. That would be nice!
When I get back, I’ll be selling my ute toolbox in the Melbourne area, because I’ve found that I like ute canopies much more. They’re just more effective at keeping equipment secure and safe from the elements. I’ve got to keep this under tray tool box while I make the massive drive toward the capital, but I’m keen to get rid of it as soon as I return to the (hopefully) rabbit-free Victoria.
Don’t get me wrong, I can see the appeal of tapered under tray tool boxes, but they’re just not for me. I’ve got large and heavy equipment to deliver with this job, and it’s better to have the weight distributed all over the back of the ute, rather than just underneath it. The ute felt really awkward to drive.
I know that all of my loyal readers are dying to know how I am possibly writing all these blog posts without any internet access or a phone, and it’s starting to seem like I’m avoiding the question. I take great offense to that, as I am most certainly not avoiding that question. I don’t understand the comparisons between me and politicians, seamlessly avoiding confronting questions through long sentences that make the audience forget what the point was entirely, so I can promise you, right here and right now, that I would never do that to you. I love my loyal readers too much to do that. You’re all fantastic, and I just want you to know that.
