Hi Everyone
Happy International Moke Day from Magnetic Island.
Great day here but not many Mokes out and about.

Hi,

and did you get out in your Moke today?

I spent the morning being followed by Chippy Dave around the hills north of Melbourne, visited an English style cricket ground, again, that is up for sale apparently before ditching him in Kinglake and going down to the MOA IMD event at Fonzies.

I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.


Cujo. 1999 - 2016

Hi,
I drove Guliver to work and unceremoniously drowned him at the car wash on the way home  :)

A happy IMD to everyone  ;D

Mokes rule , no matter what you do when your spending time with them  8)

Cheers everyone.

Six Mokes from SMOG (Sydney Moke Owners Group ) met at the VC Partridge Rest Area at Menangle on Saturday for a 9:00 am departure to meet up with Queen Bee and Peter l from Canberra

Who had driven up to meet us at Trappers Bakery Goulburn
                                           
                                     for the return trip to Queanbeyan                                                                                                                                                   

   
where we were spending the weekend to join in on IMD 2019 on the Sunday hosted by forum member Queen Bee                                             
                                   And then on to 2019 Floriade for a walk around                 
                                         
after which we all gathered for dinner at Jerrabomberra and met up with the Baldocks who had travelled down from Gunnedah for the weekend events.
Setting off from Jerrabomberra after a quick breakfast and photo shoot                                            
we headed towards the south of the ACT, Namadgi National Park and Tidbinbilla National Park, stopping for morning tea at the Gibraltar falls   
                                       we then set off to the Canberra Space Centre 

where we were joined by Peter L from Canberra and then we were on our way again to Cotter Dam for a sausage sizzle    ( without butter)

cooked by Queen Bee’s husband and son who had arrived earlier to get the food going and a few more stories were told and then onto    The National Arboretum which gave us an amazing view over Canberra

Then it was off to our last stop at Mount Ainslie where we were met by Max de Oliver in his blue Moke ute

and we all had another chat and said our goodbyes before the group set out for Sydney. And another terrific Moking weekend had! Thank you to everyone who took part, it was a great weekend and a special thank you to Queen Bee and her helpers for all their organising to make it a special event.
By the time I had returned home I had travelled 1190 Klms over the weekend and it was well worth the effort thank you all.
