After a total of 32 cars
attended over the nine days we were down to the hard core (or stubborn)
last Eight. We had a lazy packup & cleaned the site gathering a bit
of rubbish & a little treasure, TJL doing the sacrificial burning
of someone’s favorite boxer shorts while luckily I decided take home a
pair of old Dunlop Volleys. Lucky I say as tucked inside where $200
worth of orthotic inserts! (I’m sure Michael has chewed Isaacs ear over
Time to split, Glen, Sharon & his tribe headed to Dargo & north
up the coast, John Alec & Maia had more time so were last seen
heading towards the Gatta while Raff, Matt & Paula & my crew
took the Tea Tree Range Track out over the top. Part way along we
found the huge tree that had delayed Darren the day before. If only he
had known about the little used detour over Mt Sarah it would have
saved him an hour on the chainsaw ;-)
Coming out at Myrtleford for lunch we were home mid arvo & hosted
Matt, Paula & the kids for one last night before they continued
their Victorian tour back up to the Goulburn River at Jamieson.
In conclusion we had a great New Years break up the High Country with
the LCOOL group. Caught up with lots of old friends & made plenty
more. We experienced the extremes of weather from thunderstorms to
minus 2 then 37 degrees just 3 days later at the Wongungarra.
Some highlights were the challenging driving at times, great views,
relaxing in the river, teamwork to get several dead cars going again, a
delicious smorgasbord & some dubious fines sessions around
the campfire, raising in total $300.05 which has gone to the Flying
Thanks Muddy for the LCOOL signage & Daz for co leading the trip
& organizing the sponsors for the Tshirts. Until next time.
And so endeth the trip - TJL not game to touch this pair of lime green
champions that have been left behind...
