    Filmed at the Goolmangar General Store as we passed, what wasn't shown was just 50 mtrs the other way was the RBT/drug squad set up. The Policed pulled over every vehicle that wasn't a Kombi including our neighbour in the hilux.... We were all given the thumbs up and huge smiles.

    They know that by owning a kombi, you can't afford anything else! ;)

    Bloody missed it because my Kombi was playing up and wasn't prepared to risk driving up from Coffs Harbour.
    I hope it was a great day

    So many Kombis you cant even see Monty or Blue Bus.

    What a day, thank you to everyone who joined us. I hope you had as much fun as we did.

    As Jerome mentioned we are so lucky to have the camping space reserved at The Rainbow Power Company, such a generous offer year after year.

    Max Stone (probably should be stoned) stated 'the two dudes who ran in front of the KK as it rolled down Cullen Street was none other than Chibo, the founder of the HEMP OLYPMIX and Bob 'the Plantem' Hopkins, founder of the MardiGrass....'

    So we were among MardiGrass royalty.

    I have been told there were more people to cheer the Konvoy through than the reform Rally :eek:

    C'mon Jerome......:confused:
    If people - like me - don't use Facebook, we can't look at other's fb pics.
    All those links require a facebook login.
    Cheers,
    Mark
