Has anyone else followed purely the geography of the Hayne allegations?

I read yesterday he was drinking in either Newcastle or somewhere on the Central Coast, took a taxi to the victims house in the Hunter Valley, asked the cab to wait, then following the incident got in the cab and asked to be taken to Sydney. Best case scenario that’s gotta be 3 and 1/2 hours worth of cab fare.
That would explain the ridiculous wage he was requesting before this all happened.

Yeah I can’t even fathom how much that’d be. Have to be over $1k I’d have thought.

The best case scenario I can fathom is about 215kms @1.88 (I think peak fare in Melbs is 1.98 and low peak is 1.80) plus the 20 minutes idle and flagfall and it’s just shy of $500 for about 3 hours.

One thing I miss about Sydney is a good storm....

Although today's one was maybe a bit overboard. That looks like all sorts of manic. And there was dust storms only a few weeks ago through much of NSW (not sure it hit Sydney?)

Grew up in the Blue Mountains just outside of Sydney. Has always been a pipe dream to move back there one day. Lived in Meadowbank near West Ryde for a couple of years. Could take a ferry from just outside my house to Circular Quay. Was a North Sydney fan and used to go to North Sydney Oval most weekends to watch the mighty Bears. **** the NRL.

Loved Luna Park growing up, especially a ride called the Rotor. A circular room which spun and the floor dropped leaving you stuck to the wall. Used to spend hours on that.



Saw many great acts at the Sydney Entertainment Centre including Culture Club, Eurythmics, Eurogliders and Duran Duran. Also attended a couple of wrestling events there and saw Andre the Giant, Junkyard Dog, the Iron Sheik, the Killer Bees and others.

Moved to Queensland when I was 19. Have been back to Sydney a few times for footy and Mardi Gras but it doesn't hold any great appeal to me apart from a sentimental desire to move back to the Blue Mountains.
The Blue Mountains are beautiful. Magical. I went there for the first time a few years ago and was blown away.

Did you ever see yowies there? I watched a documentary which said that yowies live the blue mountains.

I thought yowies were a myth but now am open to them existing. :eek:
