    Ha ha - that's great! Love the hats!
    Maybe one day I'll make it to a Bus Stop...

    Where are you @Wayne murray ? Did you dress up?

    What about you @Quombi ? Taking all these photos, did anyone take one of you? (Dressed up?)

    Ahhh - that's great! I should've recognised you from the other photo, with your 'factory floor twin' kombis. You're with @Mr Beckstar , I assume, dressed up as...... Hawaii Five-O???

    Your outfits are all so good! I have realised that there is no point in me working out 'who is who' from these photos. I will never recognise you in real life based on these. :p:D

    Bus Stop never disappoints.
    A fun place surrounded by a diverse group of people. A few days out of the year where we can happily be ourselves and share the love of our Kombis.

    Our journey to and from was mostly trouble free. Drivers side window fell down making it a chilly trip down the mountain and poor little Gracie had to make a few pit stops with motion sickness but Vera did us proud climbing to over 1500m elevation and the kids were patient little travellers spending almost 8 hours on the road each way.

    Paul was so committed to this years trip that, as some of you know, did a 1200 km round trip just 2 days before departure to ensure Vera had all appropriate rego papers sorted.

    We arrived later than anticipated on the Friday evening but once again immediately felt such warmth as some of our favourite people (you know who you are) were there to greet us with our annual Kombi hugs. Also received a very special gift from a prominent KC lady which was most proudly displayed in front of Vera all weekend and will be at any future events.

    Enjoyed the scenic cruise on the Saturday and impressed that the photo shoot, after seeming an impossible task, was organised so well... nice job. Witnessed some very clever and funny costumes at the gala dinner and enjoyed the yummy meal. Had incredibly sore ribs from hilarious stories around the camps on Saturday night and pleased to be surrounded by our usual partying crew.

    Thanks to the Easter bunny who did a fantastic job on Sunday morning and we then had some family time at the beach where the kids had a ball! Unfortunately missed most of the Kombi races however, I did get to cruise in the GTI...Thanks heaps Alice and Woz and love that you have brought a new aspect to future races with your smashing attire!! Al will perhaps have more judging (and bribe taking) to do next year!

    A chill out day on the Monday, had a pleasant walk through the bush to town for lunch and were fortunate enough to avoid the ticks. Grateful to Melissa for organising and collecting pizza that evening, was yummy pizza too!

    Farewells always tough on the last day as is the drive back to reality but we were lucky enough for the first time to have a Kombi tail us home. Thanks Sam and Margie for the company and support.
    Never a dull drive through the mountains, fortunately missing a stubborn brumby who decided he would move when he was ready but also saw a couple of dingos (not Ernie) which I've never witnessed up in the bush before. More comfortable once down the mountain and a slow old cruise alongside Blowering Dam where you're almost guaranteed to meet a roo on the road around dusk when hundreds congregate for their evening drink. Concentration levels were high but made it back home to two very happy Labradors!

    Thanks to Karen and Pete for too many things to list. Thanks Melissa and Scott, Mark and Sue for all you do for our fam and all the crew camped near us who joined in the fun or just for the pleasant chats, Kombi related or not. Thanks Hayley for the top pics you take and share with us.
    Wonderful to catch up with everyone and a pleasure to meet more people whom we can now place with avatars.;)

    There were a few usual suspects very missed this year and here’s hoping you make it to Dubbo, it wasn’t the same without you.

    Just to relive the Bus Stop 2019, we have been tempted to call Scotty just so he can give us the Mallacoota intro on the guitar again! Wonder what he has lined up for Dubbo? Perhaps The Lion Sleeps Tonight would be fitting? The lion doesn’t get to bed too early, that’s for sure.:D:D:D:D
    Eye of the Tiger... Crocodile Rock...

    Love ya KCers. Thanks for another memorable BusStop!:cool:

    Chrissy, Paul, Gracie and Joseph :)
