Last year when we travelled in those parts of the country where the most common 
vehicles seemed to be mining vehicles, we noticed a big difference.  When we 
waved, we had friendly waves back!
On all our other trips, we would be totally ignored and we assumed that there 
must have been instructions to ignore travellers who waved.
We wondered if there had been a change to improve public relations?

The conservation battle is never finally won; the development battle is.
