Thumb We're in Bluff!

Today we left Balfour for the start line in Bluff. 8 Tractors left at 10:30.




We had our first breakdown at 10:53... (loose wheel nuts.. easily sorted)



We drove 115k's at roughly 25 kph... on the straights we got up to about 30-ish. (woohoo!)



The weather was great. (I think we all got a bit burned on the way down...)


Pilot vehicle (1923 Dennis)




Trish



Maria



Rob



Robin



Noel



Peter



Lorraine



And tail end charlie (Maurice) Towing the 'Love shack'



We're staying in the camping ground, (actually the camping ground was full, so we stayed in the park next to the camping ground) we pitched our tent, and watched the other tractors roll in. At 6:00pm we had the drivers breifing and discussed the plan for tommorow and went over the trek rules for the road.



There's supposed to be 35 tractors leaving from Bluff tommorrow, I think we have about 25 here tonight.
