    Aha!

    I drove past this following a greenlane years ago and I always meant to come back and visit it - looks like it was an interesting explore, thanks for posting mate.

    Did you get there via the scenic route? :-)
    He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand; And I said, "Listen! I've traveled every road in this here land!"

    great find here, that cherry picker bought back memories as i drove one the same for about 5 years, they were either a Dodge, or a Renault, think the 2 companies had some sort of a partnership or something.
    The vans had air brakes, sliding windows that rattled like mad ! and very noisy to drive, ultra heavy streering too , bloody awful things.
    I agree with the mad max comments too, very atmospheric.
