 Driver climbs up on rig to quickly peer in at the cattle on each level in the three trailers before he has a spell in the roadhouse.
  If an animal is found 'sitting'' then there are means of getting it on its feet again.  If an animal is lying down it is a worse problem.
  The rump of one beast had rubbed raw against the side of the trailer. Noses or rumps, either seem jammed into a position and the cattle are transported hundreds of kilometers. Was said, for example, the cost is $37 per head from north west Qld to Roma sale yards.

 Phone Booth Project, Installation. Moree NSW Gallery.
  The pay phones are a happening place in the Western desert. They're always ringing out and there's often someone hanging around waiting... people had terrific tales, achievements, business, of keeping family together and of love and friendship, of loss and difficulty and the ongoing struggle to sustain their way of life.
  Western desert phone booths are part of a continuous history of communication for Martu people in the region, from waru (fire) to UHF and CB to the telephone line, and maybe one day mobile phone reception to bridge the distances.
  A video installation reveals this. Take a seat.

Telstra provides good connectivity in most place names, just out of town it fades away. A public phone is often found installed. Also the correct mobile hand set or correct settings seem essential.
