Today about 2:30 PM, a dump truck got badly stuck right near Lazy Croc.
The concrete land next to it was in process of being poured and therefore not driveable, and there was no alternative passage for carts, nor motorbikes.
A second dump truck arrived and pulled the stuck one out. Both trucks dumped their loads of hard core in the slurry, and a grader slid the stuff around into place.
All in all, for what was a major mess, it took only an hour to straight out.
Traffic was lined up both north and south.
One more adventure.
Motorists, please note that you should avoid the shoulders of puddles. Sometimes they look like a better elevation, but often they are like quicksand and down you go. Most of the puddles along the way are not terribly deep and you can safely drive right down the middle. The middle is firmer than the "shoulder" in most places.
