    Hi guys,

    Thanks heaps for such a splendid day!! It was so good to meet all you fellow bus drivers. I must confess that that was only the second time I have seen that many buses together in one sitting so that, together with a spectacular waterfall and a leech sighting it was quite a day! Roger and I ambled home in good time. I wanted to make sure I wasn't going too fast (which is hard to do in the evening with dash lights that work very occassionally) so I had to use a lighter to make sure we kept to 90 or so.

    I thought I'd share some pics that I took before you upload yours Jane!

    Cheers,
    Ben

    Hey Ben, great photos - glad you put yours up- it might take a while for me to get around to doing ours as Tony is working the next couple of days and I don't like using his new camera- I'm so glad you enjoyed the day out with us and that you and Roger got home safely - love that you had to use a lighter to see your speedo - classic!



    The buses in order of photos are: Maggie - TassieDave and Big Ted - Tony and mine.

    The white transporter was Glen (he was in Eden too);Roger - putt,putt,putt;Milly - Modred and Pinkscrapbooker and Paul and Lynne's.

    The Purple beastie is the one from the UK - how committed is that - it's a Father/Son team traveling together.
