Travelogue and Photograhs by Andy Nash

Friday - loaded up the Quarter Pounder, the Chev and the Small Fries trailer, had trouble with the trailer lights so didn't get away from Mt. Druitt until 11.30a.m. Saw Charlie Borg having lunch at BP Beresfield as we fuelled up. On to Coolongolook were Ann and I had lunch before arriving at Wauchope just before 5p.m.  Was directed where to unload everything by Kirby Maxwell before strolling into town for a great Chinese meal for Ann's birthday and then back to motel to thaw out as days were nice and sunny but nights were freezing.

040Saturday morning saw us having breakfast at the showground and checking out all the market stalls and a great  assortment of trucks and stationary engines. A grand parade at lunchtime saw the showground track full.  There was approx. 80 trucks in attendance.  
027Jeffsan's Republic and Chev was well received getting a few awards. The highlight of the parade was Northcoast Towing with their heavy duty Coronado under lift tow truck towing their Mack under lift tow truck towing the Freightliner supa tilt tray with an escort vehicle in front.
Saturday night we had dinner supplied by Phil Cassell before the auction started with a few great laughs.
Sunday we checked out from motel before having brekkie at showground then another parade at 11am. Following the parade everyone was packing up. We left at 1.30pm and drove straight home arriving at 6.30pm.  It was another great week end with some top people.
