By around 10.30am we were all eager to get on the road and cruise to our first destination - Glenrowan. Some of the entrants chose to have lunch at the “Golden Arches” while others chose to fuel up and head off to our next destination – Ettamogah Pub - for a more substantial meal.
While at Glenrowan one of our LGC members, Ron and Cheryl Mills, suffered a major problem with their diff, which lead to their F100 having to be towed to Albury for repairs.
After a short shop at Ettamogah Pub most cruisers left for our next destination and overnight stay at their own pace, arriving at Gundagai around 4pm. This gave us all time to have a bit of a look around - Deb and I checked out the historic railway station and wooden railway bridge and also the amazing site of a very bumpy wooden overlaid with bitumen road across the Murrumbigee flood plain. We then freshened up and cruised around town before heading out for dinner with entertainment provided by a roving magician. For a cost of $20 we thought the “all you could eat” buffet and tricks and slight of hand acts provided by the magician was excellent value for money. We hope that all who attended enjoyed the evening as much as we did.
Thursday morning saw us all gathered at the Dog on the Tucker Box for a 10am start. With all the cruisers ready to go in glorious sunshine, the long stream of cars hit the road for the final leg of our cruise. Rod Hadfield lead the way for the first 15 minutes until the roadworks were behind us and the highway opened up to its normal two lanes. At this point it was time to pass Rod who was getting along at 80kph and pick up the pace. All the cruisers kept pretty much together and the line of chrome and brightly coloured cars snaked its way along the highway. It was a spectacular sight to see. The line of cars stayed together all the way to registration at the Goulburn Showgrounds.
I would like to thank all those who joined Deb and I and other Lets go Cruisin' members on our cruise to the 18th ASRF Street Rod Nationals. Collectively, we raised $800 which will be donated to charity.
Look out for details of the next Chainsaw Bob Cruise - this time to the Easter 2007 ASRF Island State Street Rod Nationals in Hobart. The journey commences on Sunday, 16 March 2007 with an evening cruise - this time over the water to Devonport.
