    If we look at the stats for the past events over the years, a high percentage achieve the journey........... the higher failure rate tends to happen on the return journey. :(

    Just an observation........:rolleyes:

    But I really hope everyone get’s there and back safely, without incident. :)

    Quite sure Vera bumps up the percentage for non return journey. ;)
    On the bright side, we get our money’s worth with NRMA. :D
    Shame you won’t be at Mallacoota Grant.

    Gold coast was good. Broken down in the driveway of camp. So made it under VW power. But pushed to campsite under VW Fanatic power.

    That was on the way home! Alternator died - got as far as Grafton (I think) and then put on a flat bed and chauffeur driven home!

    Perhaps "Bus Go" as a new encouraging title:).
    None of this is helping my anxiety:(. I've done PPPPP but I'm still stressing:( despite a trouble free run to Stanthorpe & Old Boy having a service recently. Fingers crossed that those we're travelling with will bring good Kombi Karma:D. Or tow us in:p.
    Cheers
