At first we were a little uncertain about staying (just couldn't find the right site) then we found a perfect one and had a great night stay. The road in felt worse than the return journey but not overly crazy. Really annoys me with the idiots who want to fly along even though it's 60kph. Good news is on our way out, the graders were out making a smooth ride.
