    Well I'm off to the 'never never' to work

    Early next year i'll be off to Argyle diamond mine to drive trucks. Holy mother of god !!!! I just looked up where i'll be going. But I will take plenty of pictures to show you the real Australian outback. and yes the dump trucks in the pics is what I'll be driving . And when i'm there I'll begin studying for my safety ticket so I can get a cushy job indoors.

    That looks like fun.
    From the looks of those trucks, driving one IS an indoor job.

    Rather large aren't they ....would hate to be the mechanic. They'll get a bit of getting used to . I don't think I'll be on them straight away though. (well I hope not anyway, but I've heard stories of girls getting their license one day and then put into one of those the very next day the deep end i believe they call it) but the money is worth it ...some very very serious money.

    Good luck on the new job. You do have some remote and desolate parts of Oz. I rented a car in 2003 and drove from Darwin down south of Kakadu Park and some of that country reminded me of the U.S. southwest.

    Will you have to have cavity searches every day to make sure you're not smuggling out diamonds?
