Above left is a dry river bed that was right beside our roadhouse accommodation. It ran directly across the highway as well. As with most roads in the north, a road sign would warn drivers that a dip is ahead and possible flood way. It's too expensive to build up the roads and put in culverts or bridges everywhere where water could be only a few times during the year. Above right, is another post-mine camp ATCO trailer serving as a motel behind Kumarina Roadhouse.
Where else would a guy pee when the next town is 200 km away and no bush in sight?
