    5:00am I accepted a ride from airport to Halls Head albeit my pax was a set of keys. Easy job I thought, no pax to entertain, no traffic, surely able to get a ride back to Perth in the early morning rush.
    How wrong could I be. Mandurah was a ghost town even at 8:00am requiring an empty ride back to civilisation.
    Never again. Mandurah (and Rockingham for that matter) are now “no go” zones for me.
    Any other “no go” zones?

    I did one to San Remo from the city a few weeks back, at around $85 and did not pick anyone up on my return leg until I got to Cockburn. Still, $77 is not bad at around $35 an hour!!!

    Coming back empty or partially empty from a long distance trip is always going to be a problem, but sometimes 50% of something plus increased dead kms and dead time are acceptable if there's not much going on elsewhere and you have tbe time to do it.
    I usually regret accepting those.
