Truck vs Not a Truck

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Seeing as youre an aussy you would struggle to imagine the fact you can drive 30 minutes down the road and have everyone speak with different dialects
Depending upon which bit, he might struggle to drive 30 minutes and find anyone to talk to who wasn't* called skippy.
(I've got relatives in western oz who live 30k apart and haven't spoken to each other in forty years)






*buggrit. is there an autocorrect for poorly aimed digits?

Isn't that that monstrosity labelled Austarlian truck is actually a road train? I would not say an articulated anything is a truck. its an artic ( short for articulated vehicle). A truck is a vehicle without a hinge in the middle with a single load carrying platfrom behind it, covered or open that cannot be driven on a car license. If you can drive it on a car license it is probably not a truck or you would need a truck license.

At least one car manufacturer is advertising utes as trucks in Australia now. It's a bloody disgrace to all that is Australian. Oh, sorry, all that WAS AUSTRALIAN.
