Trip started a bit later than planned with a 10:50 departure from suburban Como. Some city traffic to contend with down Manning Rd, Leach Highway, Roe Highway through Midland, and then onto the Great Northern Highway. Past Bullsbrook and RAAF Pearce where some PC-9 trainers were in the skies. At Muchea turned into the Brand Highway for the trip to Geraldton.
The drive along the Brand Highway was pleasant, passing through Gingin, Regans Ford, with a stop for lunch at Ampol Roadhouse Cataby. A good seletion of roadhouse food with a delicious homemade steak and vegetable pie on the menu. Saw three 4WD
