Simon Lindsay was a road worker on State Highway 3 in New Zealand.
His blog – RestArea300 – was a classic. One of the best I’ve read
In the blogosphere, he was Doddery Old Fart. He died suddenly in May 2007
His blog’s offline now, but there are some pure gems tucked away in there.
Thanks to Chrissie, Alex and Jane for letting me share them
