Well in the Aussie outback so-called reality shows I've seen so far (Outback gold mining and Outback trucking) ... a lot of the Outback roads are at least way more level (albeit covered in thick clay/mud at times) than where we've traveled in Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, and Nevada. We also carry a satellite communication device with us cuz the good old Internet is indeed not available everywhere in the U.S..

As far as traveling "fast" on washboard roads in the Outback -> that's probably due to vehicles carrying on business out there and time is money. Here in the U.S. - other than maybe out in the gas well fields where we have explored in our MH - it's mostly folks out there recreating, so they're not ripping it up on our remote washboarded road surfaces. Moseying along when out and about in the U.S. so as to enjoy the views and not destroy one's non-expedition RV ... so far still works well.

Your comments are based on TV shows about Australia [emoticon] Then you give dangerous in formation on how to drive in Australia.

Add 1500-2000 miles of dirt roads. No Road Trains in the US, yes you can see texting drivers as well if the Internet connection can be found. The fact that people have died on these roads because they became lost, makes it somewhat more challenging than US Roads


I’m not in the USA except when I visit there.

Have only been to the Rockies in Canada, the sluice Lake , name escapes me with the New Zealand like turquoise water, womans name...Lake Louise
