    This made me smile. The iconic Nimbin Museum Fire survivor was meant to be destroyed but disappeared and was saved by a local plumber. The Kombi had not been seen since until it came out to greet our Konvoy as we passed. No small feat to get it there, so thank you Trout Plumbing.

    Thanks Lorraine for organising this again, good to see so many at Byron for the start of the cruise.
    The reception at Nimbin was great and would encourage people to get along next year for the 25th!

    Cheers
    Steve

    As long as you are there is all that matters.

    Excellent..
    It might drag out a few more guitar molesters.
    Very positive feedback from RPC on the evenings entertainment, fires and guaranteed same spot for next year.

    We have something in common, I was run up the rear by another Kombi while in the Konvoy a few years ago.
    Hopefully you can get yours fixed and join us next year.
