Hey all.
This is how the Port Macquarie Australia Day meet went for me. I have refrained from posting 300+ photos :wink:

Rod and I cruised over to Grants joint so we could convoy up together. You know, so the ultra reliable Nimbus could assist in the event of certain Gemini failure.. :lol:

As most of you are aware, the Nimbus was the cause of a 5 or so hour hold-up, I smashed my clutch plate on the freeway :oops:
Image

A MASSIVE thanks to Grant, Gemicoupe (Nick), the bloke who had a spare one, and my mates Mike and Adam, who drove it out to us..
Before the unexplained (I dropped it in third and stood on it at 110) clutch disaster, I managed to hang out the window and squeeze off a few shots of the boys.
Image
Image

About the time we were supposed to be in Sydney, meeting up with the Seductive crew, 4am, we were still in Victoria..
Image

We finally pulled into the park around 8pm the next day.. :roll:
Image

Nice joint..
Image

Here's some shots from that night
Image

Ghost Tezz checks his car is locked!
Image

The next morning.
Image
Image
Image
I had to take one....
Image

We were eating some toast when the call came in that the Maccas breakfast crew had organized a meet! Trin and I boarded the Tezz mobile and headed down!
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Tezz reveals secret info!
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Then it was off for a cruise. Which didn't manage to stay in formation. (Melbournians can cruise!)However, seeing as this should become an annual event, it's something as a group we need to address.. :lol:
Anyway.. Sheepz is happy with deployment!
Image
Jonno and Jesus happily voicing their disregard for the seaside air quality!
Image
Image
Photographing the photographer!
Image
Then we stopped again..
Image
Image

Back up the road there was a nice spot to line 'em up..
Image
Some of the locals negotiated second story photos. Sadly, the shots were mostly obscured by palm trees and other landscaping paraphernalia!
Sorry Grant.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Then it was off again to burn around and check out the local coastline, which was tops.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

We were then led, by I can only assume, our fearless leader, whom I never met, to a carpark of uncanny exact size for our gathering.. :?:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

And then the camera battery went flat :roll:
We decided that although there were BBQ facilities where we were, they sucked. We headed back for lunch.
Image
Image
After lunch, the beers started flowing,(for me anyway), and I took less photos.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

The beers were still flowing,(for me anyway), so a game of totem tennis was in order. Which didn't work. My giant ball, teamed with the rock hard ground, proved no good...
Image

Anyway, by 10 or so, after catching 0 fish, a couple of drunken swims in the ocean, (for me anyway), this was the standard of photo..
Image


:lol:
Along with these
Image
Image

Well, that pretty well sums up Port. That so called drinking competition that brewed up in off topic, was unintentionally won by me. I just had some fun, and ended up drinking twice that of everybody else combined :wink:
Was a good night, made some good mates, talked some s*#t, and even backed up Lok in a fight he started and couldn't lose! :lol: :wink:
Thanks everyone who attended and made this meet a great one. It must become an annual event!





THEN, Trin and I headed for Canberry, where we were treated to an awsome car scene, great hospitality and a ton of fun! Cheers to Jonno, Destie, Pin, and Sheepy for taking us in..

Heres some shots..
Image
Image
Image

Desties machine..
Image
Image
Image

Huh! Jonno gets his car into the meet thread without actually getting it started! :lol: :lol:
Image
Image
Image
And one of the ute.. It's for sale you know.. :wink:
Image


Here is what happens when you have an awsome car, a great location and a bit of time. Micheal's car came up great!
Image
Image
Image

My favourite!
Image


These photos are the low quality versions. If you want the Hi-res version let me know. There are tons more too. These photos are free to use for whatever you like, so long as it doesn't incriminate me or the subject.

All you gem owners who didn't come should be jealous, we had a great time!

Greg

Thanks guys. Did I miss anyone's car, or forget part of the story? :D

Maybe I could work out how to RAR them all together or something and put the file somewhere it could be downloaded by others..?? Easier than CD's and post...

The file should be smaller than 500MB if the files are 2130x1400.. Only a few of Mike's car under the bridge look good at 4000x3000 odd.. Which is massive. Would print up into a poster well though!

Just got no idea where to send it though.. Any of you blokes net savvy enough to explain a way to do it?

Greg

if you dont want to do it as a torrent, then you can also use Rapidshare.
http://rapidshare.com/

it'll allow single files of upto 100mb. so you may need to rar it in 4 or 5 seperate archives, but once its loaded up, just put up the link and anyone can download it, you dont need to keep your computer on and seeding.
