    Met some good people there and Gladstone though.

    We lived in steed st up the hill 5 mins from the mall in Kin Kora,explored the place thoroughly. Furtherest north I went was Rocky,fark its hot up there. Biloela is like one of those places you see on national geographic in the sahara,its like a town plonked in the middle of absolutely nowhere. haha I remember jumping out of the car at 5 am in the morning in a tee shirt and its minus 4 in Bilo. Clear days but cold overnight in winter.
    Thanks Gerry. Just going up there for a few days. Just concerned about the possible overnight crime rate (due to the high unemployment). No major issues with rampaging criminal youth was there???
    Kin Kora was a nice area I remember.

    I spent very little time during the week in Gladdy respite residing there. I was always pushed for time and spent the weekends hanging out with my family. I did spend some time in the company of a guy who went to school in Gladdy,he reckons there was kids smoking heroin at lunchtime. I found the people nice and friendly to be honest. I cant tell you too much apart from the fact that the bottom fell out of the place before we got there,the rents were super cheap and theres no jobs.

    Rocked into Happyknackers (Gladstone) this arvo. Driving in past the "welcome to the city of Gladstone" sign there's a black Ford Ute parked by the side of the Dawson Highway. Three young fellas having a piss by the side of road. See where I get me class and culture from kunce lol.

    Fuck Gladstone has changed since the early 80s when I left as a kid. Back then there was nothing there, just tough honest hard workers. Now its like a Locality of a capital City, development everywhere.

    Probably, Roosters aren't really a working man's Team. Gladstone is built on Coal and other export industries

    Took a rental car with family and cats from Brissy to Gladstone,and drove the whole way without stopping until we got to tannum sands which is about 20 km south where we filled up the tank. Cost me 37 bucks for a 520+ km drive. It would cost much more driving that distance in NZ.
    It freaked me out a little driving through the sunshine coast after being in a small town with hardly any traffic to being on a highway with it almost bumper to bumper.
