Sign of the times

Saw a couple of good ones today. "Skin Cancer Clinic. Get it before it gets you." Nothing like a good scare tactic to drum up business!
The second sign had me daydreaming for a while. It was a highway sign, with the distance to various destinations; Esk, Toowoomba, Roma, and Darwin - 3437km. Made me just want to keep driving. Darwin is one place I've always wanted to visit but I'd never considered a road trip before. For the next ten minutes I was calculating distances, time required (most of the trip would be through the swirling void known as The Outback)and cost. Then reality came crashing back down, as it does.
Dream on.
