Safe to say, I think, that a few of us from the Monarchs MCC will be doing this again.

A couple of questions...

Hi Scrap-heapers,
Noting that all adventure bikes are welcome:
- are non-scrapheap riders/bikes able to register & fund raise?
- what is the actual destination at 'Back 'o' Burke'?

You can absolutely register and raise funds, even if your not riding a scraper.
The more people helping out with raising money the better.
The final destination is at Cameroo Camel Station, http://www.comeroo.com/

Had so much fun last year that the wife and kids are coming this time.

Hey all,

I reckon Pezz and Old Dog could share a trailer, one with a couch and fridge on it, their wives and kids could be in the car, no need for the bikes, they don't seem to ride them far . I seem to be able to get to these destinations, but never get the Scare Chair all the way home, well attempt number 4 might just see me achieve the utimate goal of getting there and back in one piece!

I've retrieved my outfit after our crash following SAR3 and the damage isn't too bad, mostly straight but will need a new body (have been told NOT to carry passengers this time, I don't know why) so I'm looking for a few bits of Landrover Series 3 if anyone has one lying about somewhere in the Hunter area?

Thanks for getting this off the ground again Pezz, I'm looking forward to it.

Regards,

Joe & Co
