I think I made a passing comment in another thread somewhere that I was off to a Meeting with my 'local' Moke Club, the South Australian Moke Club (SAMC), for an outing and a formal Club Meeting.
The trip all up for me was a little broken up due to that dreaded four letter word - work.
I went over to SA on the 13th October, attended the Munn Run up through the Adelaide Hills on the 16th then had to fly home for work that evening.
I finally got a window on the 25th November to go back, finish (or try to!) some un-finished Moke business, then start my trip home, only for the return trip, A good mate, Garry came and joined me, picking him up from Adelaide Airport on the 30th October. We had a leisurely, though hot (36 - 40 degrees) trip back home.
I'm not that great at writing up the running commentary, so for the most part here, I'll let the photos do the talking.
Just on Sun-up on the first day out, along the boring Hume Highway, sitting easy, on Cruise Control
