Today began at 4:30am Adelaide time. Left my friends’ house at 5:15am, and drove the Magna wagon back to Ballarat.
It was great. Fuel consumption was reset in Adelaide and was at 11.7l/100km when I began the return trip. Down to 9.3 by the time I collected the trailer and Falcon from DCW’s (thanks for looking after them!).
Went and collected some Mercedes wheels from a champion bloke before heading home.
It was a slow but uneventful trip until I stopped to refuel at Holbrook.
Two Vietnamese blokes approached me with broken English, asking where I was going. Long story short, they had a crashed Mazda 3 and they needed to get back to Canberra.
After a bit of thought and some clarification of expectations, I unloaded the Magna off the trailer and loaded up the Mazda.
So they are driving the Magna back to Canberra and I have to work out how to dispose of a rooted 3 and how to collect my Magna back off them…
I recognise all of the risks here. I have covered myself on the speed camera risks, so really my only concern is if that steal or root the Magna, but I figure that the risk is bearable.
I have been actively trying to live the change I want to see in the world… will see if it bites me.
I am kind of wondering if it is reasonable to swap the crashed Mazda for the loan of the Magna, and then scrap it.
So yeah, it was a weird end to a big day!
