Vehicular Jaunts, Part 2 — 2 Comments

  1. and there’s me bitchin’ about having to drive today from Norwich to Luton Airport (a right fucking dump btw, best avoided)inorder to collect Crippled Son who has been off in Serbia shooting weapons.

    [BTW for the travelling smokers among us, I got an email from him the other night: “You’d fucking love Serbia, Dad. Everyone smokes EVERYWHERE!”]

    Nis, I am so nicking your ‘glow worm’ description of the awesome, legendary, lumen count of those VW bilux! Better much than my ‘could have held my lighter outta window of my polo’ quip.

    You are lucky, I’m told, to have experienced Australia when it was still populated by women who glowed and men who plundered and not metrosexuals who think tossing a tofu burger on the barby the height of daring. Hell those Kenworth drivers were probably even allowed to smoke in their cabs….

    • Hell those Kenworth drivers were probably even allowed to smoke in their cabs….

      Heh! I have wondered a few times what the situation is on that front, funnily enough. Because I’m sure that Aus being Aus as she is these days will have laws banning smoking in cabs. But at the same time, I can’t imagine an interstate trucker agreeing to forgo his fags while driving for hours at a time. It would be interesting to hear from an Australian who knows about it.

      Mind you, back in the ’70s, it was probably a vastly different industry, barely regulated at all, really. I bet it’s regulated to buggery now.
