Apparently not.....This sh*t terrifies me. I drive for my job (usually several sites a day and country work). Rack up the kilometres and would be in strife without my licence. (Ie no job)
Pushing 120 on a country road to overtake sometimes. Be a bad time for a cop to see me.
Good luck without it. You can't do the 12 month 1 point thing? Is that still a thing?
Sunny is head up north in the first week of May.
By train to Sydney and Brisbane, then by road to Cairns.
Say, a week to Brisbane, two weeks to Cairns.
I‘m familiar with: the Hume to Sydney, Sydney, Central Coast, Port Macquarie, Byron, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and up to Gympie, Cairns/Port Douglas.
Anywhere in between, or up to Cairns from Gympie I’m not very familiar.
Does anyone have any recommendations re stops along the way?
Time is not the enemy here.
If you’re really interested, class, I will now explain why the ship ran aground in the Suez Canal. The weather conditions were poor with bad visibility - negligible importance as ships of this sort have incredibly hi accuracy/definition radar and GPS BUT strong winds, westerly gusting 40knots - a significant factor. The Bridge team, pilots and Captain, made a fateful decision to increase speed entering the canal from the regulation 8.6knots to over 13knots. Theoretically giving them greater power and steerage to counter the wind, BUT crucially introducing disastrous “Bank and Squat effect” . These are aspects of Hydrodynamics explained in Latin many moons ago by a fellow called Daniels Bernoulli. In simple terms it means that the faster you drive your ship in a restricted waterway, the shallower the water gets, as all sorts of crazy displacement and pressure wave things happen and your stern gets sucked towards the bank. I’m very interested in this professionally and have to be as I sail a big boxy unwieldy sailing barge, often in shallow, narrow channels at low tide in strong winds, sometimes with the added spice of big heavily laden ships coming in the opposite direction. The Ever Given was travelling close to the starboard bank but adjusted to counter the wind more towards the port bank. Contrary to what was initially reported there was then a big lull in the wind so this adjustment turned out to be an over compensation. However it was too late to counter this, the ship was too close to the port bank, in effectively much less water than it thought due to squat caused by speed, the bank effect sucked its stern into the bank and skewed the bow across to starboard where it breached the protective rock armour with its bulb and this is where we are. As you can see from one of the graphics the ship was doing 12.3 knots just before it hit so a lot of momentum to lift that big bow into the shore and this is the bigger problem — they seem to have freed the stern, getting the front floating again is the trickier bit. Thank you for sticking with this to the end class, you can have tomorrow off.
I used to have lectures in Fluid Mechanics for 2 hours on a Friday afternoon, after a 3 hour break.The Ever Given explanation as written for dummies (like Sunny).
