    Well, we should have been gathering at Lani’s for the Old Bar Beach Festival, long weekend…..
    Frickn’ Covid stuffed it up for us….but I know more than a couple of us are “getting in the mood” as a tribute to this awesome kombi event.
    So, as in recognition of this awesome long weekend, post a pic of your bus that would’ve been there.
    :cool:
    Cheers,
    Mark

    We should be there right now, catching up with friends.
    I would have driven Little Red up, Scott would have driven Spotty and my son would have bought up Josie. spotty.jpg little red.jpg josie.jpg

    The kids are so disappointed they are sulking in the shed. I tried to cheer them up by telling them we have booked and paid in full for next year

    EDIT: My first attendance of Old Bar, was in 2008. Stayed at Tallwoods, at Hallidays Point, and then convoyed into Old Bar behind Melissa, driving her blue twin slider T3. :)

    This image is for the following year…….:oops:

    Never stayed overnight there. Just day trips. First was in 2009 when I drove down to Thornleigh to pick up the convoy then dropped off at Heatherbrae then up to Old Bar on the day. Park up at the Hawkesbury heavy vehicle stop in 2009.

    'fraid so...

    EXIF time stamp 3/10/2009 9:19:42 (give or take a minute or so camera clock error). I don't set the camera for daylight saving so 10:19:42 on the day.

    PS. Seems the edit function is broken (maybe part of yesterday's database issue). I thus correct my previous post. Daylight saving started on the 4/10 so it was 9:19:42 (give or take a minute of so camera clock error)

    Not that we have done the Festival, we are normally doing a sailing regatta this weekend but we camped at Lani’s on our way to Melany.
    We were one of only ten camps in the whole camping ground after the big wet !
