OK boys not long to go now and the weather is looking pretty average. But hey I guess we can blame the La Ninia crap or just a wetter year this summer.  ::) Anyway all the Vic guys are sorted.
Now bring some boots for maybe a bit of a hike up the mountain. Whilst it might be a bit damp I will throw in a footy and cricket bat to help keep us amused for the 2 days up there since there isn't really enough Zeds to do a car display on the Oval this year. Also pack some beer or alcohol and munchies as they might be cheaper off the mountain if you are hard up for a buck or for convenience.
Oh and in usual fashion I thought I better blead my clutch pedal last night and 2.5 hours later still trying to get some pressure. Gave up since it's bloody hard to get to on my car. Last chance to fix tonight as out for tea Wednesday. Might have to take the header off to get to it. damn I hate doing things last minute. Normally don't but was woried since it had been playing up. Didn't want to get stranded anywhere. Otherwise could be in another car. Wifes V8 VY Crumbydore. Then Scott can have the last laugh on me. Ha Ha.
Either way we will see all you Canberrans at the Petrol Station no matter what it's name is. Ha

OK Vic people, I will be meeting John in Lilydale a 8.30, then we will be picking up Wes & Maggie in Yarck around 10.30am tomorrow morning and then catching up with the Balarat boys in Euroa BP at 11.00. Then onward and upward to the mystery petrol station to catch up with the ACT guys at 2.30ish. Give or take 30 mins. Sorry we can't be more precise but it's a 5hour trip and can't nail down an ETA. But phones and text should narrow it down at lunch time. Not long now. Drive safely all.  ;D

As for the honda he sold it to one of irene'S sons. so cant take that eather.

That's some bad luck Dingo. On the plus side they didn't take you car. Some prick did the same to my Zed 10 years ago.
Pretty damn wet here in Vic. Sulio and John a bit late. Hopefully we can leave by 9.15.

I met up with Chris and a few of the other guys from Canberra just as they were filling up and checking their tyre pressures at the Chisholm BP Service Station this morning.  It was fantastic to finally meet a couple of the people off the forums.

Have a safe trip guys, and I hope it doesn't rain too much.

Nah it was pulsar locks not 260z but thanks mate. I have the locks for the 260z somewhere they are probably in a tin with all the door stuff. Just gotta buy a new front end for my 260. Well the trip seems to be going well not big problems that's held us up.

Well Friday was a pretty good day. Weather was fine and warm. Drove to Jindabyn and up to charlets pass. This Sunday morning we have a lot of rain and a bit of wind. So could be a slow day. Would probably have gone home today but we have all paid up front for another night. So we will try to make the most of it.
Cheers

Wow what a weekend. Don't really wanna go home but it has to end at some stage. Thanks to everyone for making it such a good weekend. I loved jumping in on all the zeds. They are all awsome and fun to be in. Safe travels to everyone and have fun. The words of Huston seem to work well now. "good luck and Godspeed."

Thanks guys, the weather may have tried to dampen the spirit but to see a chain of Zeds snake along alpine way is always a worthy sight!

Nice shots there Simon. Yes had a great time despite a wet Saturday. Great drive through the Alpine Way. Hope you all had a good time as Sulio and I did. Next year we have Tassie and the year after that we might float the idea of going to Bright/Omeo way. But that will depend on the Sydney boys if they are keen to join in. I think Sulio will do up a Video that we can send out later on. Might have a viewing at the Jag Club in a few months time.
Cheers

Looking forward to seeing the video....if you would like a copy of the photos I took, PM me with you mail address and I'll burn them on to a CD for you. 

Omeo/Bright sounds good to me.  :)
