    What a stunning spot for a church - who needs all the gilt and pomp? Lovely "service" Kel :)

    Thanks to each and every one of you that shared our home this weekend. It's always a pleasure to be able to invite our wonderful friends from KC.

    I have laughed so much and sung so much that I have almost lost my voice.:D

    After what was looking like being a very wet weekend the gods smiled on us and the weather was beautiful.:)

    The hymn before the sermon delivered by our 'reverand' Kelly was appropriatley called 'in a kombi' :)

    A special thanks to Julian, Kelly and Celia who went out of their way to pick Andy up from Brisbane airport.

    Curtis NEVER found his cookie, it will still be there next time...promise.

    Great pics, I might steal a few of them for our internet listing soon.

    I am sooooooo tired it's an early one for me tonight.

    THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE :heart:

    Coolio, Kel. I've just gotta do a bit of tidying up at the start and end, and I'll get it up on youtube. Will let y'all know.



    As usual Michelle has taken some stunning photos. I kinda wish I had an SLR at times like these but I don't, so my little Fuji has to make do. Also, I didn't take too many people shots - I think 'cause I spent too much time talking... I did however get a few snaps today though, so I'll pop up some of my faves.

    And all lined up at our stop for lunch (well, the first attempt at lunch anyway):

    I reckon Julian would like to be permanently bonded to Monty, Lorraine. :D What a lucky boy to be able to drive him....

    My wife and I had a great time for the short while we were there. What a great bunch of people!!! All of you are fantastic. Can't wait for my Kombi so I can quit drooling on yours!

    Kelly, I am a doctor of wood!!

    Lorraine, that 'convoy' shot has come out really well, hey. Don't mind pics of seeing the Kombis in action.

    And you're dead right, Kyra! :D I'm still grinning after being given that opportunity. Monty is an absolute dream to drive too. I think I have a bit of a boy crush... :eek:

    Looks like I'm going to have to make sure Monty is locked away each night;)

    He certainly is easier to drive than poor old Blue Bus who has returned to the mechanic again today :cry:

    We listed the house for sale today.....any takers? Will probably take a while to sell, anyone have any rellos in Sydney looking for a tree change?:D

    Ahhhh, the end of an era for KC and Camp Keen. Like I was saying to you though, usually a house takes about a month to settle once signed, so we've got a bit of time to organise a 'last hurrah' campover once the good news is announced. And you're right too Lorraine, it could take a while for it to sell. Which means we might still get a couple more campovers in yet!

    And I hope you get my bedroom back from the mechanics in a more timely fashion this time around.

    Ooooo, just had a thought - you're going to need people to help you drive your flock of Kombis up from Nimbin when you move, aren't you... ;)

    Brings back many fond memories of our trip up to your wonderful house! It was the company that made it wonderful so if you sell up and move into a flat (with a six car garage) we will have good times at your next wonderful property!

    Something tells me that your taste will lead you to something a little more special...but hey...you get the drift! ;)

    I agree with Sheriff It's not the house it's the people! (But that view is so fantastic!) Sorry to hear about Blue Bus. They are tough though and he will get over it.
