Thank you to everyone who camped in the "special" area reserved for our group. It was lovely meeting the forum members, such a friendly and helpful bunch.

I am looking forward to attending other events and highly recommend joining this crew, they will welcome you with open arms.

I apologise for not formally saying good bye to you all early Sunday morning. The foul weather kept campers tucked up warmly inside…..

On my way home I took a break in Waihi where I grew up as a child. We lived in a railway house in the street where the historic train station is ( My dad worked for the railways when the line was still operating) . I parked the van at the station and then biked past our old house and continued along the newly opened Hauraki rail trail into Waikino - a mere 22km return trip. The last time I cycled the full trail, you had to catch a train for this section so I was pleased to relive some childhood memories. As kids we used to bike to Waikino taking short cuts no problem at all - with a packed lunch and no helmets!

It was great to see so many vans carrying bikes at the show. By far my favourite bike was Nutz 17 's little pink number, very cute!
I am very interested to know how Debbie and Andrew's future electric bike adventures pan out as well.
