    Hi everyone. Hi to all i knew in the past. :) Haven't been around for quite a while. Life has its twists and turns, Driving a Hilux ute these days and using a camper trailer. We Still have Bonny but shes a rusting hulk these days in my driveway. Unregistered and will need some work. Money i just don't have. Not completely out of the kombi interest. Still dream of that late bay DC. Ah well. Hopefully one day it will happen. Cheers all. Just thought i would drop in. :)

    Blast from the past.
    Squirt the Kombi cavities with fish oil or lanolin to help control the cancer.

    Welcome back. I always wonder where you got to when anything at the abbey comes up from your medieval reenactment photos.

    Hey guys thanks for the welcome. To be honest the bus was rusting away quicker than i could save the money to sort it. If it was all smicko then i would be driving it and camping in it. However. We do what can at the time. a friend sold me a spare ute and its been great so far. I haven't done the reenacting for 2 seasons but will make an effort to sort it this year. i am still in a club and will still be an archer. Had shoulder issues for a while though. they have pretty much cleared up.
