    Yep.
    If you're not there you don't get a say. Fair enough.

    Was speaking today to one of the original, and unnamed " Movers and Shakers" of the OCR (his name has a bit of a Scottish sounding). He's going to Adels - regardless of who else is going.
    That's good enough for me.

    That's it Adels Grove will be the 2020 OCR. I've spoken to them and it sounds great, the lady on the phone was very very accomodating. They will open up the fish and chip shop if we have the large group like we've had before. There is also 1)large camping area, 2) an area where tents are already erected, 3) Donga rooms etc etc. they are licenced and have meals. And they do tours. She is sending me some other info. So book it in the diary 2nd Saturday in August 2020. This is NOT an organised event you sort yourself out on how to get there and back and travel to your own ability. All the very best to all

    The pre Lorella get together at Adele’s was excellent.
    I’m looking forward to getting back there.

    I’m pretty sure by Adele’s Grove all the “Failures to proceed” had been sorted.
    From memory it was a radiator hose just outside Wentworth and a fuel pump at Mt Isa :D

    Oh hang on, I just remembered the leading link pivot bolt backing out in Walkers Crossing and I think a cracked frame on the way home (by which time we’d gone our separate ways)

    There's an idea. We could get him to do a egg & bacon roll run from Isa. Should still be warm by the time he arrives

    So let's say to have a say/vote where the next ride is -
    1) you need to be at the OCR
    2) you need to have riden there on some form of motorcycle(sidecar, solo, trike etc)
    3) you had to have carried your own gear.
    That's it. Just my thoughts.
    Remember this is not an organised ride, each person is responsible for their own.
