An Isuzu driven by Michael Barsi had pulled up at the Bendemeer Rest Area in NSW. “I had blown a radiator hose and had to stop here to fix it,” he told Big Rigs.
With Barsi was his 16-year-old son Dominic.
“I have some gear on the Isuzu to take from Sydney to my property at Glen Innis. I bought the Isuzu 20 years ago second hand,” Barsi said.
He added that he likes stopping at the Murrundi Roadhouse because it has good food.
Barsi rates the worst road overall as the Hume Highway between Sydney and Melbourne.
“I think more rest areas are needed along the Hume but there are plenty along the New England Highway,” he said.
Barsi is of Hungarian descent and his wife of Greek heritage.
Later on I passed the Isuzu on the New England Highway and further along at Armidale saw it pull into the Connetic Roadhouse.
