A small convoy of two Minors and two caravans getting ready to leave (Tuesday 31st) and taking a couple of days to arrive in Albury by Thur. 2nd. Its no that far from here but as the co-pilots have agreed to tow the vans we do not need to rush the ladies .We will spend one day/night in Gundagai as it is my families home town.
As I said arrive Thursday and personaly I am ready to go, but still doing a bit on the car.
See you there. Eye Rolls

G'day

Plan A is to leave Portarlington AM on the 2nd arriving Albury in the PM.
Last time I went up the Hume to Albury it was on the way to Port Macquarie and was about a four hour trip unfortunately the body has suffered in the interim so now will take a little longer. But looking forward to the run.

cheers
Graham

We're leaving from just outside Canberra about 10 am Thursday, so we might see a few on the road!

Stopping for lunch at the Dog on the Tucker Box service centre outside Gundagai.

Safe travel, everyone!

G'day

Morrx is in the drive at Portarlington ready and waiting for blast off.
Unfortunately the driver is in Hospital in Geelong where he is likely to remain for Easter.
Not quite what I had hoped for but we do not always get what we want.

I hope everyone has a great Easter at Albury.
Safe trip there and back.

Cheers
Graham

We arrived home yesterday taking three days down two home. God bless the ladies that drove the Caravans.
My car performed exceeding well and a couple of fuel checks against the Ford Territory's tripmeter showed I was doing 6 liters a hundred.
It used no oil and it did not even cough once.
Lost wipers on the Bright run but it was just a fuse, and I got a little water in the headlights coming up the Hume H'way on Tuesday.
All in all for me a great Rally.
Thanks to all at the AWMMCC.

Car details A series 1160cc Twin Su,s ,balanced, extractors. reground cam.12G295 head.9.9 to 1, MG Midget box,3.9 diff
