Espresso machine is "on" in Ballarat . All welcome .
.

Plenty of parking and "Bellett" spoken fluently .

AnneMarie and I were in Kilcoy last week - just our luck to pick 1 of probably only 2 or 3 weeks in the year when there was no Bellett activity in the area . Will have to try again in the future.

We left at seven this morning with a escort out of tow to make sure we left I think. With Dave c Gav and mr broom broom Bruno and the look on Daves face was priceless as we roared into the tunnel making as much noise as we could Broom Broom Bruno was pumped when he came up between us with is arm out the window yelling out wahoo, the guys behind us said it sounded good also as they made there own noises :roll: .

Yeah, and Waaaaahooooooo it was Greg. 'Ol Yella seemed to flatten out and grow 5 foot longer when you got on the hammer, AWESOME :o. Note we had to round up a little Hyundai or something mid tunnel. I can still see her head ducking and the arms coming off the steering wheel up to her ears as the Frog, "Ol yella, and Bluie thundered past......WHAT THE HELL....She nearly had a heart attack :lol: :lol:

So Dave C. Gav and myself peeled off for one last romp back down through the wet and slippery hills. It was hard to know where the intense happiness ended and the tears took over, but I 've been chocking ever since you all left :cry: :cry:

Some of many spesh moments to reflect on:

You really can't explain what it means to listen to the Holiday Camp rumbling with the sound of idling Belletts/Isuzus at sparrows fart.

You travellers are a well oiled and disciplined machine I can only admire hugely. I learnt how hard it was for Lizzie to sit in the Bellett let alone drive one at the moment. But you will get it fixed and be champing at the bit to drive one soon.

When something breaks (aka fuel pump), everyone comes running with 50 alternatives to get it running again in 10 minutes :o :shock: Thankyou Chris and Josh, i owe you big time for a brand new shinny one :D

Also got the pleasure of fanging the Pat Crea during the clean up, and had a lack of fuel issue half way up South Rd. as Ross found out later and was stuck on empty. However, that was when i really did get passed by Granny on a mobility scooter :lol: :lol:

Great effort from my hommies, and so much fun together for the weekend.

As for everyone who was there, it was as if I had known you for ever but in reallity only for a minute of my life, which I just wanted to continue......... :cry: ............FOR EVER !!

Quick honor roll:

Sticky, you and Donkey are exeptional and have grown special in my heart this weekend.

Greg, Lizzie, Mum and the well oiled Moller family machine, love you guys dearly.

Mattie, you are a quiet and unassuming dimond of a bloke,

Gricey and your darl wife.......I will get in the back door one day and drink all your beer before you get home :lol: :lol:

Terry, Davo, Gary, amazing characters in my books.

Gav, my sides are still splitting between tears (drops)

And everyone else I've missed you all have a spech place in my heart.

Safe journey home, and may the Isuzu fun brigade continue.

Signing off, B.B.B. (Broom Broom Bruno :lol: )

Great that these Bellett/117/Florian (and also Prince ) enthusiasts were able to make time to call in for a coffee and chin wag on their way home from the Nations. Thanks, we really enjoyed the visit.

The road trippers split today as we are all have times to be home. Russ and Dave heading for north QLD to be honest the weather is $h17. I have never experienced wind so strong in my life. The only time I felt rain sting my face this much is when we try to water ski in the rain. But ol yella, mildred and donky are parked up outside a log cabin and we are nice and warm ;) and laughed at the weather as we looked at all we could and had a pig out at a bakery. Sticky is lighting the fire even though the reverse cycle is set at 21 :)

Sticky now has the fire going, and very cosy. Great Ocean road has been spectacular, and lucky enough to have the sun out at most spots. :)

And then there were 3....

The Great Ocean Road has been awesome so far, 2 3rds left to see and a helicopter flight over for me (maybe)
For tonight however we are toasty warm in front of the fire, bellies full and drinks in hand.
There are bunnies outside hopping around and Donkey has been put out to pasture for the night.

Now THIS is road tripping :D
