When the Gunbarrel Road Construction Party's grader broke down in the middle of the desert, that meant a journey of 800 kilometres at three kilometres an hour - the longest towing operation ever in the history of Central Australia. 

The party hitched up their "train" and set off back along the road they had just built.

But while they were all set for a long and arduous journey, they did not think the ration truck would catch fire and melt. This had its disadvantages; but as Frank Quinn remarked, it was the best entertainment they'd had for a year.

It was just the start of a series of incidents which were to mark this journey out as one of the most eventful episodes in the team's experience.
