I would think the biggest problem with driving to cons down under would
the traffic on the open highway. I saw a documentary the other night on
that seemed to indicate a great deal of 'offensive driving' by large
numbers of people with the *strangest* taste in clothing and makeup... I
mean, mohawks in a convertible? That's no way to promote personal

But if you can catch it, I reccommend it to anyone interested in
culture and tourism. Had Mel Gibson as the 'man on the scene' reporter.
Can't quite recall the title.... The Road..something or other.
