    Thanks guys for showing me the friendship and fun of a Kombi event, even though it was raining and somebody decided to park their plane on the ferris wheel. I still had a good time. Looking forward to more events.:cool:

    god i get that all the time !

    the past few weeks have been cold and rainy and there is nothing worse than seing some good surf , and your all nice and warm in the car , but you have to muster up the courage to get out and put that bloody wet wettie on !

    not so bad once your in the water , but damn its hard to go from toasty warm to freezing cold !!! :lol:

    No way you wouse!!

    Friday and saturday were not to be missed. It was really just Sunday that sucked.

    Problem was it started raining heavily late Saturday night and just kept going meaning the field was a big lake before anyone woke up.

    Then the Sunday wind kicked in.

    Plus you missed the plane action.

    We hopefully wont get that again.

    hopefully :) no more plane crashes

    i would turn around and do it again

    2 weeks trying to get the motor running good for a 7.30 hour trip, to get there for one hour before deciding it was too wet id just go back home. less than half way breakingdown on the hway, had to fix the car in the poooooooring rain, no spare cloths to wear, get home late, over $400 on fuel and stuff....

    but atleast i got to take a vw this year.

    see you all next year ay!!!

    good one scotty*85,
    got to keep the dream alive...
    Pommy ian from the central coast driving his black an silver(no paint) 11 window splitty did a clutch on the way up.
    He pulled his motor out on the side of the road an replaced the clutch with a new one he had in the car.
    He wasnt going to let a simple thing like that stop him from getting there..

    Something occured to me today whilst thinking of Old Bar 2012, The VW Spectacular is on again a couple of weeks before hand :eek:

    Now the decision is which one to attend unfortunately doubt I can do both?
    Maybe I need to start a new thread with a Pole?

    Nath I would have thought since chris had such an awesome time at oldbar she would be jumping at the chance to attend 2 Kombi events within a couple of weeks of each other ;)

    She enjoyed Valla (I Think) But the wet really ruined it for Old Bar. She doesn't have to come though:p
    Plus its a money thing too

    You did well Bernie.

    Thanks again for saving my tarp. Otherwise it would be floating over New Zealand now.

    How is the front of your Bus. Took me a while to dry mine out. I might need to invest in some new door seals and window scrapers.

    Cheers,

    No problems. It took a little while to work out who owned the tarp!

    When I got home I pulled everything out of my buss and hosed it out to wash all that nasty salty water away :lol:

    Its now in the garage drying out :D
