    Hi All

    I have a dream- not as grand as the one of Martin Luther King but still one that I hope promotes goodwill.
    I received for xmas a nice little read " The VW Camper Van - A Biography"
    It is lighthearted interesting also also packed with Kombifacts.

    Lets see how many people around Australia we can get to read this book. The first person who replies , I will post it to on the basis you agree to do the same. At only 200 pages with pictures you should be able to read swiftly and pass on

    ok, first in first served, who wants it first?

    You're next. I think we should all pay the postage to forward it on and keep it going.
    Let's see how far it will go. I think everyone who receives it should print their forum name and location inside the book or on a bit of paper that circulates with it. :)

    To protect it as much as possible & if not thought of a padded post bag or bubble wrapped would be a good idea.

    I'd be interested in reading it also :cool:

    kombiwomble to KahunaKombi. The book would have travelled several thousand kilometres by then. I wish I could just deliver it by Kombi, what a trip that would be.

    Good idea Bert but a few dog ears, a dirty finger mark here and there all add to the fascination of the journey.;) Only kidding.

    I've seen this done with a camera loaded with a roll of film. Anyway you can send it on to me Grant. I was looking at purchasing but never got around to it. Besides no room on the bookshelf!

    Lorraine, yeah there will be those general usage marks just hope someone doesn't turn it on it's back and break it's back if you get what I mean.

    It'll be going north, south, north, south, north, north, south, south = you get it :confused:
