In addition to those Roundupers (aka Cool Kids) who have posted that they are home safely, we have received texts or calls from the following who are safely home :
Newie
KMC
Mazy
Grammyjan (see the unfortunate Farkles post)
Shorty
Smokey (in record time, of course)
Mokercar
Mellow Yellow
VH-CAL
Pozza and TD0077

Several others advised they are taking a few days to get home, so we'll update this post if we receive further texts.

Mrs & Mr MMD have the green and yellow moke safely on the Spirit and enjoying a wine to reflect on the past 10 days.
Thanks to all our Moke family, especially Mrs & Mr SarahaDust for their selection of roads for the return trip and hospitality. Sorry we had to depart a day early due to urgent work meeting in Melbourne.
Thanks to the Tamworth group for another great event, looking forward to 2016.

A bit of a sad drive home from the boat tomorrow morning as it will be the last chance to drive Grumps in current setup as he becomes the donor of many parts for our new Moke under construction.

Looking to cathing up with all Moke family members in Tasmania next February/March.

Hi all the happy (sad) mokers who have had to pack up and leave Moke Central. Thanks to the organisers Newie (Steve), KMC (Greg) and The Mechanic (Michael) for planing a fun packed few days of driving. Thanks so much to my chauffeurs KMC, Shorty and VH Cal for dragging me and all my gear around the roads (I travel light....... sometimes..... really I do....) I had a fab time! I arrived home at Bundaberg today as I stayed at 2b's for a few days playing 'mokey things' in his shed. Amazing shed....... Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next moke event I can get to. Thanks again and Cheers everyone.

Hi KMC & fellow Mokers. Had a great time at the round once again. It was nice catching up with old friends again & some new ones. Sorry for the mokers who didn't make it , hope to see you at the next run. Had a good run back to Coffs although my horn fell off, well it was still hanging on by the wires. Making arrangements for Tassie now ,so hope to see a lot of you there. Happy moking .Dave G.

Hi,

made home this evening for anyone who was wondering. :)

That's one hell of a drive Mr T. did you drive straight through? How long did it take? Sorry we didn't catch up while you were in Queensland, maybe next time.

I did manage to catch up with TLP for a Pie and cake at Yalata on Tuesday, but couldn't manage the time to get away for the other I planned to visit due injury and game times. I left the GC on Sunday Morning around 8am and got home about 8pm Monday.

At least it shows you care. :)

Thats one big drive Terry.

Hi,

I found the places I needed to go and how to get there faster than the $5 Tomtom could, but it was handy to see that the Speedo is pretty accurate though.

I did find a few new roads to travel on and on one hot day I looked for any chance to pull off the road and go for a swim in the rivers which was fun. Found a Moke in the National Transport Museum at Inverell and that cinemas/live theatre is alive and well in some of the remote country towns.
