    We (the lovely Karen and I, Rob) have a couple of nights booked at Wreck Rock campsite in Deepwater Nat. park on the coast north of Bundaberg with the intention of celebrating Karens birthday on 4th july!

    I have been restoring "Bertie" 82 aircooled so it will be a good testrun from Gold Coast...wish us luck!
