Er, you spend a lot of time on jets, don't you? Do you know how many 
*days* it takes to get from Adelaide to Darwin on a train? (-: Yes, we 
still get honourable tourist ask cabbie to please take him to Sydney

Simply drive Onno Benschop's (http://itmaze.com.au/) rig 
(http://www.cantech.net.au/plug/2003-06/msg00218.html) onto a flatcar, 
hook up a cable end of problem. (-: Oh, and need to get Optus aboard as 
a sponsor. :-)
