    Hi guys just came back from a holiday in Perth, great to see the stories and pictures of Old Bar. Melissa I am not the cursed one who brings the rain,I was not at Old Bar this year even though I would have liked to have gone even in the rain. Perth was sunny for the last two weeks.
    Anyway I was totally blown away when I bought the paper in Perth a major head line story plane hits ferris wheel in Old Bar, no mention of the Kombi's. You all still looked to have a fun time see some of you at the next event.

    I was the crazy bugger returning fire with the Klaxton horn and the red bus with the 3 spot lights. Good luck getting yours on the road.

    Cheers

    So after a week away we're back to "normal" !! A fantastic experience at Old Bar despite the atrocious conditions. We managed to stay dry - thank goodness for good seals in the camper - and tried to meet people between downpours.
    A Big Thanks to Lorraine & Judy for making us feel particularly welcome, as well as Mellissa,Bernie,Dave,Frank,Markus,Kai & Moe,Dave,'Liss, "Cornish" -(didn't catch your real name !!), Nathan & Christine,Justin & whomever we chatted to in the RSL.....Below are some pics from our run: Old Bar-Crescent Head-Bellingen/Dorrigo-Armidale-Glouster-Wangi & then home. Cheers, Mark

    Nice one mark. that point break looks awesome!

    I do have one question though. what was with the new jeeps, chery etc. parked where kombis usually parked? not to sound rude or anything but it seemed a tad odd. they could have at least used the jeeps to help the kombis out if they got bogged.

    Hey Kai - agree totally - it's not like anyone was really there to look at Jeeps :lol: or pick Chery...s :eek: I would have liked to have parked up with the rest of the KC crew, but there wasn't any room...& we were amongst the first to arrive !! Go figure. Cheers, mark

    Hey Liss, yeah weather was better, though still seemed to take the rain with us wherever we went - even poured in Armidale !!
    Racks made travelling so much easier & gave us more room inside too - you should get a set....;)
    Hope Daisy's set-backs are coming to an end. Cheers, Mark

    This year's Old Bar Kombifest was our first, and despite the weather, our enthusiasm is not dampened! See you next year.
