Be good if we can convoy down again Sim. I'll have Maree with me this trip and maybe Miles too, plus towing the trailer, but I think the Brunswick will keep up OK.

Across the western plains of NSW, Auto pilot on, 2 way tuned in and stereo playing the blues with good mates in the other vehicles. Sounds like a good trip to me.

Maybe we could 'blue' the trucks up for Beyond Blue for the trip.

I can't lock in yet but the convoy down interests me as well if I do, Sim and I convoyed down to the 10th (I go past his place anyway).

G'day Oscar and Leonie. Dubbo is direct in my path so no dramas picking you both up if you want a lift. The roof rack will be empty too so plenty of room for all your gear as well.

The Blue Convoy

G'day web wheelers. I'm thinking of giving my 'trol a dose of plastidip for the national meetup. Maybe a blue flame job? or maybe just blue up the wheels, or add blue wedding car type ribbons or maybe all of the above to raise awareness for beyond blue and the work that they do, and we are donating to, during the weekend? What do you think? Can we get a 'blue convoy to Pinnaroo from Brisbane?

I'm thinking of leaving on the Thursday the 24th of September with an overnight stop around Parkes/Forbes and doing the reverse on the Monday-Tuesday coming home. I'm looking at taking my camper trailer to this one for that additional comfort that official old farts require.

So let me know what you think.
