We have come to realize that Murphy’s Law does actually exist, especially whilst travelling on narrow roads. What am I talking about you might ask?
Murphy’s Law - If anything can go wrong, it will.
Here is an example, you are towing a caravan on a narrow road in the distance coming towards you is a wide load, road train and its not slowing down for anything. Part of the road ahead is narrow bridge. The rest of the road is empty in both directions.
Both you and the road train will pass on the narrow bridge, not just before it, not just after it. No right on the bridge! We have noticed this law in action many many times especially in the outback, leaving Fred mumbling to himself “what are the odds” There was one car on the road ahead and no other car other than ours in either directions but two emu’s decided to cross the road just as both cars were passing!!!! Somehow they slipped between us and the oncoming car as we both braked with a screech. They could have crossed the road at any other second than just the moment we were passing!
So here is a couple of tips to take on your next road trip:-
A knowledge of Murphy's Law is no help in any situation.
If you apply Murphy's Law, it will no longer be applicable.
We are here in Bowen for a couple of nights and then moving on to Airlie Beach. We will be meeting up with my brother and sister-in-law at Airlie Beach.
Today we are wearing shorts and Tshirts but I have a feeling rain is on the way, which again is an example of Murphy’s law as it was sunny and warm up here the whole time we were away in Melbourne.
