Back to the club this morning for breakfast where we had a garage sale of auction items which we won’t get time to auction. All monies to GIVIT, all stock cleared so a win-win all round.
We also handed over another one of our GIVIT donations to the local neighbourhood centre. Very well received and very much appreciated. Only simple items (vacuum cleaner, microwave, digital camera and hand knitted Beanies from the Mackay Northern Beachs Lions Club) but they are essential items and will make a huge difference in many peoples lives.
A few opal stalls set up at the start line. A couple of us picked up a piece or 3.
Lunch was another spread of homemade delicious dishes and sweets. The cooks in these small communities have the catering down pat. Variety, cost, taste, quantity…
Well the Road Boss Rally was never meant to be easy, and never will be! If anyone thought the tough stuff was over, RB certainly saved the best for last. What a day with a mixed bag of everything our entrants love. Sand, mud, creeks, rocks, hard to see and find tracks. This is what they come for and what inspires them to keep linin’ up year after year. The 2017 RBR has certainly delivered on its promise. The best part is, it’s not over yet. Still a very interesting day and a few challenges lie between here and the finish line in Tamworth tomorrow.
Boy, hasn’t the weather made a downward spiral. From warm balmy days to near sleet. Just like the rest of the rally though, we love everything that is thrown at us and we lap it up in jovial spirits.
Very busy day once again where the action and jobs at hand never stop. From the second we open our eyes early in the morning to the time they close eighteen hours later our minds are racing and fleeting around keeping everything on the road and running smoothly. Love every second of it. Just wish we had a few more seconds sometimes.
All the cars are now rolling into Boggabri under the cover of darkness and a healthy coat of mud. Smiles from ear to ear though. Big roaring fires are the order of the night as we get set to enjoy our final night out on the road.
Both cars of the The Jagman team caught up again this morning and it turns out they are now a three car team. In order to get the parts they needed, they bought a whole car. It is known as P753. (parts753)
Tamworth tomorrow where we cross the finish line and get to have our final farewell presentation dinner. Lots of laughs, memories to share and no doubt a little tear or two as we say goodbye for another year. We also get to announce what our 2017 total fundraising achievement is. Very exciting!
