    Following on from the where did my bus come from thread it got me thinking, who was the first KC member or members that you met face to face.

    The first people we meet were Paul and Lynn (cornish) at a K C camp over at Currumbin.
    They went out of their way to make us feel welcome, it was just the start to the many members we met that weekend.

    I continue to say, buying Wilbur was the best thing we ever did.:D :D

    Apart from Big Dave and Dave (B4) whom I have known before KC started, I guess it would have to have been Tom and Ray, who we dont see on here that much nowadays.
    Then we had our first meet at KMart and met a few others.

    I think it might have been Rob (4 Hammers) on his way back from the Gold Coast to Tassie. This was it:

    Don was the first KC member I met in person, a happy smiling bloke with 2 big dogs and prayer flags strung across behind the seats. It was at Albion Park Rail and we were heading up to the Nationals at Fairfield last year. There was another couple there from Albion Park but I can't remember your names, sorry.
    The next people we met were Royce and Andrew and the kids, more very happy smiling people, what an introduction. Next we met heaps of KC people at the Nationals but unfortunately I was deaf as a post at that stage so conversations were extremely difficult.

    ditto, at the 2009 Nationals...

    Actually not quite correct. I know of at least one member here I first met in the late '80s but I guess the KC didn't exist then.

    First KC member I met was Michael Both, it was the day I bought my Kombi. I don't think he is on here any more tho.

    The next time I met anyone from the KC was on the Little Hampton run last year, drove into the Big W car park to 8 or so other kombi's. 74westy (Beck) was the first person to say Hi. We ended up with 17 kombi's that day and a couple of KC'ers in other cars.

    Pretty good first intro.
