Victorian High Country

Postby Blue Bravo » Thu May 08, 2008 10:48 pm

Well Mrs Bravo and I are back after our latest jaunt.
We headed south to Harrietville near Bright in Vic and prepared for the "Drive4Life" High Country Tour. Each vehicle is required to make a $1000 donation to the nominated charity. The organisers take no percentages relying on sponsorships top cover costs.
Met up with the tour group on a Sunday. There were eventually 85 vehicles on the tour divided into 10 groups. Each group had separate itineraries for each day and each group camped in a different spot each night.
A fabulous event really well run. Saw some magnificent scenery and camped in some magical spots. Did some serious 4 wheel driving with a fair bit of low range up and down hills and many creek crossings.
At the end of the week the organisers were able to make a $100,000 donation to the Northcott Society for purchase of specially built wheelchairs.
After that week we wandered through central victoria, the riverina and central west nsw for a couple of weeks.
Now back home and cleaning everything and planning for the next trip which is a big one to central australia then Perth.

Did anyone miss us :|

We missed you! ;) sounds like a good way to help get some wheelchairs.
