    Chippy - if you are trying to post, look further down at the empty box and type a message there. I think you are just clicking on the "Reply" button in the bottom right corner

    Hi Chippy, thanks I have put you down on the official list. I cannot guarantee camping at the Rainbow Power Company for Sunday night, the Konvoy is very lucky to be offered this area for the Saturday. I have never stayed as I live at Nimbin but others may be able to enlighten you further. I'm sure there will be alternate camping if required.

    See you Saturday

    Don't know about the rest of you but I am getting pretty excited, the Village is buzzing and the preparations are in full swing.

    As Stu said only two sleeps, I still have three Kombis to wash :eek: At least I managed to get two down the servo and fuelled up no.3 is so tightly parked in the garage I'm not even attempting to move him out!

    Andy decided he wants flags on our Kombis so luckily Nimbin has a tiny Habby shop and it had some fabric I can use. So it's off to the sewing room for a few hours now........there's always tomorrow to wash the Kombis.

    I'll be there..... Could you leave a few kombis along the route (like breadcrumbs) and I will find you all!

    Just got home from town and it is buzzing, I have never seen so many in town on the Friday of MardiGrass. Ticket sales are right up and it shows. I have not been able to get a parking space in town for three days.
    So lucky to have the Rainbow Power Company for camping as already the side streets are full of tents.
    I reckon it's going to be a great day tomorrow.
    Thank you in advance to all those attending.

    Kombi lovers, here it is!!! The 2016 Konvoy arriving in Nimbin for the Mardi-Grass.

    Thanks to Allan Morris, Lorraine & Andy for organising another exciting event. Many thanks to the R.P.C for allowing the Kombi's to camp in their compound.

    To anybody wondering whether you should go, next year for sure!!!

    This clip really captures the atmoshphere from street level, the Kombi's receiving the rockstar reception!

    :)

    Thanks Jase that was wonderful, we had 48 kombis and one beetle I believe (haven't counted them myself)

    Next year MardiGrass turns 25 so hopefully we have a good turnout again.

    Thank you to everyone who joined us, it was fantastic.
