It was my first experience to drive down south of New South Wales with some friends for a camping trip. It’s a three hour drive and everybody was so excited, as most of us were first timers except one who knew the place and the road leading to the caravan and camping site where we’re booked in. That was three years ago and it was summer time with top temps of 38 degrees centigrade down there.
We were five families dog tailing each other on the freeway, when one stops; we all stop and wait until we’re all on the pack again.
Of course good weather have more fun than when clouds hovers and then rain comes suddenly and baths the road, foggy at most blurring your vision which makes you unable to speed up, dulls out visibility ahead and every corner of the way.
I had a bad experience driving on bad weather before; heavy rain poured down the freeway while we were heading home from a three day camping from the north coast of New South Wales. We were at that time half way home when suddenly it rained so hard and all cars and trucks had to slow down, water splashes up like geysers as tyres hit the wet road. I can’t hardly see the car in front of me and most of the time I had to rely on its tail lights at a lesser speed than the required speed limit imposed on the road.
Indeed, and I believe that weather conditions in Sydney are unpredictable. But above all, I still consider long driving as the best, just always be prepared when hitting the road and condition yourself for the long hours, enjoy and relax, drive safely as well.
