    What a great day, (as always)! :)

    Good to catch with all the usual KC suspects, and always a pleasure to meet new ones I've not met before.

    The weather turned it on, (as per my original prediction), even though looking at synoptics on Thurs - Fri, it even had me doubting.

    The maiden long voyage for the SC was faultless, even though the winds heading South West from Berry to home, were close to cyclonic!! Not even going to look at the fuel consumption on the way home, as the T3 aerodynamics of a "house brick", were very obvious with such strong head and cross winds..:eek:

    Thanks for the honest comments, and the more than kind ones I got about the "backyard makeover" of the SC.

    I took some random pics, wandering around, but can't upload them at the moment with my ongoing Telstra issues....o_O

    I trust everyone made it home without incident, and with headlights...;)

    Glad to hear it was "a great day" - you're excused Grant re the pics knowing the issues you're encountering.
    So what were the others doing in regards to taking and posting pictures :rolleyes:o_O:p

    Some of the T3's at berry today. I left Gosford in heavy rain and lightning but was fine at berry for my annual sunburned face :)

    Looks like an awesome day.

    Spewing it was this weekend as I wanted to go.

    Looks like some nice buses there too - particularly the T3's.

    After leaving Berry I saw a Bay Poptop camper stopped on the side of the road 5kms north of Nowra.

    So I pulled up behind with hazard lights on to see if they needed assistance. (Yes, this T3 driver not only waves to all other Kombi's, we also stop to see if we can offer any help....:p)

    Turns out that intense wind I mentioned earlier, has broken the hold downs, and frame, and decided to become a pop top whilst driving.:eek:

    The driver, (not a KC member I think), was in the processs of tying the roof down from the inside. As he was only 6kms from home, and seemed to have it under control, we then continued our journey home.

    Had a great "Blast" again, fun company on Saturday and Sunday with Nils / Jane and Pru the food hound :) And many thanks to Phill (Syncro), Phil (as in lucky) and of course mister weatherman himself, Gantus for services rendered.

    Sorry People, no pics this time.

    Weather held out and ended up being a really beautiful day even once the wind kicked in. We got in a bit late and missed a few people but got to see plenty of great looking rides, only served to increase my need/want to replace the bus more. Great to see Mark & Sue and at the last minute a quick hello with Grant.

    Fabulous day out for us...just a little potter up the coast. Bob is in pieces so we were window shopping how he could look. Loved the samba that's "as is" with all original bits and no thought to make it new again...kinda like that philosophy but Bob is beyond that. There is literally no front floor and lots of rear cab missing. Kids enjoyed seeing eeyore the beetle and have requested we get one (yes we will but it'll be yellow) didnt take too many photos, but what a brilliant show!!
