Are Col and Barb and Dave from Adelaide there?

Col & Barb are here, haven't seen Dave yet but there are so many mokes spread around at the moment
I may have missed him, what colour's his?

I don't know who designed the roads in Tassie but they have done a great job  ;D I think the longest straight
piece of road we have been on was about 800m, as we were coming off the West Coast Explorer there was  a
 T intersection sign with 400m warning and in that 400m I think there was about 10 corners, great for a moke
probably not fun in a Landcruiser towing a van!

Most of us are having a quiet day today in Strahan, just a drive along the beach this arvo, so you guys stuck at home
 aren't missing much, sorry, yes you are  ;D ;D Awesomeness awaits us.

Thanks Moe, Dave's Moke, not sure how you describe his colour, predominately dull Blue I think.
Happy Mokin

Col and Barb are, but there doesn't seem to be any Daves from SA on the list.

Okay some quick updates from today's events.

Just for something different, Danger Moke decides to break his front right corner today.



The good thing today was we were all standing together so everyone had a chance to get their hands dirty.

I'll leave the beach photos to Moe or HP.

Is that a special moke tool on the ground with Danger Moke?  :) ;)  My Dad used to use them. I think it was called a "pursuader".

Hi,

For Danger Moke it has had two new correct steering tie rod ends fitted(Sunday) after scrubbing out the front tyres, broke the rear left trailing arm(Monday), the rear right adjustable strut bolt and bent the extension(Monday) and snapped the front right top ball joint(Tuesday).

And he has gone from "What do I do with these" when handed some spanners on Monday to fitting new donuts and standard trumpets today for himself with some adult supervision while some of us went out to play, so well done. He is starting to line up what other things he can fix, like replacing the rusty rear sub frame he found while crawling around under there today.

Hi  :)
It's late and we have a pretty big day tomorrow.
But..... A day here in Strahan to wonder at will was fun  8)
The beach run was called for 1pm at MOKE central.
Then it was a 12k or so drive through road works and some really nice coastline till we hit Ocean Beach  8)





And the damage was....   

Was great fun driving on the beach today 8) 8) even when my carbie needle got stuck as I ... Well, .... May have turned a bit Sharpley, ( read... Handbrake assisted  ;) ).  Easy fixed with a bit of support from team Sahara dust.

Hi,
Day 5 saw us meet at Straun's MOKE Central at 8:30 am sharp.
Unfortunately, the skies decided to open up for a short burst of rain just when people were trying to pack their camp site up  ::).
But true to form, most made it still with a smile :)


We knew Tassie was going to throw some wild weather at us, and two groups were formed so we could get to Queenstown for fuel and stagger the Mokevasion on the petrol bowsers there.
Was only about 50k's, but headed up above sea level pretty quickly.

Once past Queenstown, the rise was fairly steep again and if the clouds hadn't descended on us, the view would have been pretty damn good.



But it did improve a bit ;)



A stop in at an artists centre called " The Wall " was great. This guy has hand sculptured wood into real works, replicating things like leather glove, coats, and many other things that look so real  8) 8).
Was excellent.

From here things warmed up, and the convoys were able to set a better pace ;D.



By the time we hit Hobart, the weather had cleared up somewhat, but getting 30 MOKE's through 5pm traffic in any City is very challenging.



Another great MOKE day  ;D

I went out to the caravan park and caught up briefly last night. everyone was in good spirits, though a bit tired. I think yesterday was a long day.



Today is a rest day and the weather is doing its best to confirm every mainlanders misconceptions about Tasmania. Its actually snowing on Mt Wellington and a freezing southerly is blowing. I suspect they will stay round Moke central, do some repairs and maybe some laundry. Its supposed to be better tomorrow and we're off to the Tasman Peninsula and Port Arthur.
