Really enjoyed all the pics and stories Homey. Thanks.
Glad to hear you had such a good run over and back.

I realyy enjoyed the travelogue Homey. Next best thing to being there. I reckon you have now graduated to "Ace Reporter".
You know you are expected to do this on all your future trips now don't you?  ;)

Looks like a few landmarks have changed a bit since I drove the nullabor in 1980 in a Honda Civic hatchback.
Thanks again.  :)

So glad you got home safe and sound.  It was wonderful meeting you all even though it was waaaay too short.  I am really looking forward to the next Mokefest (or is it Moke Muster) in Tasmania and seeing everyone who came over West as well as some of the envious people who could not be there in person but kept up to date with events and travels on this forum.  Thank you to everyone who was involved especially Terry for co-ordinating the whole event and making it happen.  If anyone has a good picture or pictures of the IMD gathering at Midland then I would love it/them as I did not take any myself.  Big mistake :'(
See you all again soon I hope.  Bridget

Hi ALL, glad to hear that everyone made it back over this side. Thanks for all the informative posts, updates and pics great job and gave us a nice visual of the goings on. Nice to see familiar faces and new ones. I would have liked to be there to give 'Jack' a pat. Alas not to be maybe (hopefully) next time! Wilma is still sulking as am I. Really have to get busy working on her now..... don't want to miss out again. Cheers all and welcome home! Sue and 'Wilma'.
