Last night finished off with a small group of rallies sitting around a fire inside the pub with Roo Arcus giving us a one on one show. He is a man of many talents and has won a few more lifelong fans.
From Hyden we hit the road and wound our way to York for lunch via some of the best scenery and sites this part of W.A has to offer. The season has been very generous with rain fall and the country is looking spectacular.
Todays course was all built around our visit to York, a very characteristic and historic town with loads of charm. It also has a renown motor museum which is yet another highlight and talking point of our journey.
An afternoon then spent zigging and zagging through the back tracks and forests enroute to Chidlow. Once again, a stark change and contrast in country and scenery, making it the fourteenth straight day of something completely different.
Tomorrow brings the big bang, the Indian Ocean and the finish line. It is certainly going to be a day with the full spectrum and roller coaster of emotions.
All cars and crews are now in Chidlow for out last stop of the 2016 Super. Chidlow is known as “The Last Stop” due to its location on an old railway line, so it is a fitting place for our Last Stop before we get to the end of our line.
I would like to give a special shout out to all our friends who travelled with us on the first weeks RBR from Toowoomba to Port Macquarie. It was a special group with wonderful bonds and friendships formed. It also set the scene for the Super ‘mob’ to fall into and take it on from there. I can safely say, the people we have had on the road since starting in Toowoomba has been an absolutely amazing bunch of people. I have had the pleasure of moving many groups and events around over the past twenty years, and these have shone through and bonded like no other.
Although we don’t get any time to stop and check on how things are going out in the outside world, we are quite confident that we are creating quite a wave of interest and excitement. Plenty of feedback is filtering through, our web site and face book are cracking along and each day we are receiving brand new expressions of interest and enquiries to enter the 2017 RBR. From the feedback and vibrations we are feeling from the ground swell, I suspect 2017 is going to be……..BIG!
Thanks for watching and we trust you have enjoyed travelling along with us on our journey across Australia. We will do an update tomorrow just to let you know we have all arrived safely in Perth. Then in the next few days we will do a big final wrap up and post up a bunch of photos since leaving Kalgoorlie.
Regards – Road Boss
