Moreton Island

Just returned from Moreton Island - headed over on the 28th - returned on the 2nd :-)

I know where was the club invitation - sorry this was not a club trip and I was actually invited so heck that's just what I did, mind you if planning to go around this time of year it's a good idea to book months ahead as I was unable to camp at the same spot as our friends all of the time I was there... sort of :-)

Anyway I had a good time and Narelle joined me on the 31st so we were able to celebrate new years together and with our friends and celebrate we did until the wee hours, sort of wondering what all the poor people were doing :-0

As for the island well I still much prefer Fraser as a camping destination and while I will return to Moreton it is not my favourite place...

The Troopy went quite well in the sand except for the last day when I got bogged heading into the Desert car park, this was not so bad as it was a simple matter of letting out more air from my tyres, what did sour the visit was a Tour Bus sliding sideways almost crushing me while letting my tyres down then hitting the rear end of the Troopy making a horrid mess of the paint work and panels - hopefully insurance will fix up all the damage but never good to have this happen!

Re: Moreton Island
Sounds like you had a good time Pete, any time away from work is a good time though.

Shame about the damage, your Insurance should cover it, I damaged my door sills (I now have rock sliders) last year and the Insurance fixed it up ok.
