Just watched over 30 mokes set off for Stanley, will be joining them in a couple of days.  They caused quite a stir and a lot of interest, and yes! Dev was there!!

Plus one on that Adrian, although it appears we will have to, as despite quite a few of them being over there for several days now, we haven't seen any sign of any yet  ;)

Hear yeh, Hear Yeh!
I know what it is like to be sitting home wondering what has been happening, so I am here to help.

The morning started of quite nicely, we all met as planned ready to start our adventures for the day.
We had 31 in the car park for the briefing.



We managed a pleasant day touring without any startling news or gossip.

Now we are all quietly settled into little cabins or camping plots for a rather damp night.


Who told those Victorians, they could bring their weather with them? 

Happily parked for the night in Mokeville.



Over and out! Dev.

Sorry we missed you today Ratty, by the time we fuelled up, parked and chatted to a few people we were away :)  Will catch up soon enough though ;)
That's how well organised things are, timed to perfection 8)

Never fear Halfpints here  :P and after 3 attempts using my phone to give you all some visual candy failed, I'll try one more time ( if it drops outs you'll never know I tried though  ::) ).

We had 13 MOKE's marshal up and drive onto the S.o.T  8)


A good smooth sail, has to be the best one I've ever had ( is my first though  :D ).
Lots of giggles and banter as we headed to the open water.

MMD welcomed us all as we left the port in Devenport.
Travel packs were handed out and were great, a very detaileded itinerary was in there as well.
The team here have done an exceptional job  ;)

Our first briefing had 30 odd MOKE's there.


And then we were quickly off, heading towards Stanley.  8)

Good job Dev  ;) but I'm still posting as I typed it a few times ::)

Thanks guys. Not that I was trying to guilt you into anything  ;)

Appreciate the effort as I know it's hard to get organised to post photos while you're on a trip like that

Day 2 had us marshaled at Moke Central straight after our morning briefing.



Off to Smithton for fuel and some food for our lunches later on.
Next stop was Ann Beach.


The most amazing backdrop for lunch was the mouth of the Arthur River.



The run home was via Edith Creek. What ripper roads 8) 8)

A great days driving ;D ;D

The Nut is HP's favourite but the rest of us liked the temptation of going nuts on the beach.

Great update guys - brings back good memories of the Summer Road Trip.  We stayed at the same caravan park (unfortunately Moke-less)

Cheers Adrian

Day 3 saw us split into 2 drives  ;D
I can only speak for the road group I went with that took us gently from some amazing coastal scenes, up to over 700 mtrs above sea level within 60 k's of Cradle mountain  8) then across the top of some magic driving roads.
Let's back track a little  :)




Hellyers Gourge.


Always checking the MOKE behind  ;)


Then the run to the Reece Dam  8). Roads, runs, view, awsome  ;)


Seems I followed Ray a lot, but we all switched around heaps  ;D



Everyone had a big grin all day, really, everyone  ;D

Hopefully some others will add pics or stories from the 2 groups.

HP, having an absolute blast here  ;D ;D

Well it looks like I get to update you all on the Gravel route.

A LOT of fun was had and some really good views were there for us to enjoy. But the best thing was the roads, nice and well designed evenly flowing gravel roads, with an ever changing geography, hills, creeks and tourists.

Any trip is bound to have a few problems and on this run we were lucky to only have 2 break downs but for Danger Moke it wasn't so lucky as they were both on his Moke.



So I'll leave Andy to write a post and tell you what troubles he had.

Andrew looked like he was having fun in Dinky.



And we all got to ride the "Fat Man" ferry.



Another great day and really well organised and run by Rod and Mel

Looking forward to the next week of driving a play with all these great Mokers we have here.

Cheers

Dev
