bugger...not my size
Here are a couple of photos I found in my camera which have a pre-rain camping area Friday and some soggy Saturday shots.
Great fun had by all despite the yuk weather again (3 years in a row now).
We had a couple of good run ins with the Natzi from Lani's as he drilled a hole in my brothers shelter support bar for him and let Ian (lowrider) weld up his completely sheared off rear trailing arm from his 61 splitty.
He is actually a very mis-understood bloke.
My Extended Set-up in the sun:
More in the sun:
It was the drivers side wheel that had problems - Ian managed to removed the wheel, take off the arm, weld it up and reassemble everything before dark starting from later afternoon. A great effort.
Pauls 3L Porche rocket bus:
Another good set-up
Some Soggy Sunday Photos:
Awesome air colled T3 bus - my favourite of the day:
Chucky's 71 low-light bus which was very popular:
Nice splitty with Fuchs:
The most "Novel Bus" Winner which was very detailed - great effort.
Scott - I would have to agree with you about the guy from Lanis. Not once did we get told to keep it down - and we partied on till very late each night. Even when I asked him to let our 2nd kombi in to unload when Scott arrived late on Saturday night and then go and park it back outside, he told me to keep it inside as there was some trouble with drunk kids out in the carpark. He had been warned earlier in the day that the kids were going to damage the cars parked outside with slingshots and try to get into campers eskies and pinch surfboards. He had been in touch with the police and had 3 blokes posted as security just in case - oh boy was he p'd off about it! They remember everyone and I think if you cause trouble, it bites you on the bum.
That's one hell of a camp set up on the T3 Scott.
Looks like you were planning a long term stay.
Nice 72 low-light
Mine & my bothers busses:
No Bul$$it....it s this big
With all the crap I have to bring along - we need all the space we can get.
Tents worked great in the howling wind and torrential rain - a very good test for furture adventures.
He told me to keep Beryl outside (early Friday morning) but ingnored the fact Beryl never really left the camping area except for the shopping, the Taree cruise and the Sunday display.
He did the same last year as well. Just a pain when the boom gate was closed - lots of jogging.
So who one the "Best T3 Single Cab" award????
Can that be a category for Old Bar 2011??
This one won best T3
Oh Mr Pascoe!!!
I seriously LOVE your work...yes I'll shout it.
I've had a quick look at the links....and I'm already blown away by your creativity & ability.
I'll most def keep an eye on your work.
Cheers and keep the Kombi pics coming, Christian.
On Sunday night the winds destroyed the tarp
And have to agree about the groundsman he turned a blind eye to our sons car being parked on our site
That Sunday night "breeze" took quite a few tarps with it - including my brothers and Ians shelter @ around 4:00am.
Lots of dangling ropes and poles the next morning.
Some late additions
Would have liked some pics of all the whole group to wet for me to achieve
It was great to meet some more Kombi people again!
We had a great time apart from when some one went through our tent on Sunday and pinched my daughters phone.
Getting ready for RTTS now.
Thats not good about the phone, we left our waco fridge plugged in with all our food. I wasn't sure it would be there when we got back, but lucky for us it was.
Its always a worry when you walk away from your camp what will be there when you get back.
We have stayed a many, many camp sites and left meat, beers, wine, butter, milk in the camp fridges, also we've often left cars open at camp sites and never had anything go missing.
Sometimes teenagers loose things and are embarrassed to tell their parents so they blame someone else for taking it - I'm not saying for sure that this is the case, but unless you saw someone take it, it is possible it has been lost.
