Trip report

It was a marvellous day except for the rain. 

Five cars and owners assembled at The Gap for the drive up to Mt Glorious.  Lovely road as always aside from the roadworks that perpetually seem to beset that road.  A leisurely breakfast was had at the biker’s café.  A couple of extras joined us here for the run down to the Brisbane River Valley via the excellent Northbrook Parkway.  Mike and his son Rhys left us at this point but the rest of us continued along the rough but fun run along the Somerset Kilcoy Rd to a well needed toilet break in Kilcoy, where even further humans (Ray Williams and the Bastiaans) joined us for the eventual run into Caboolture to the Warplane Museum.

Waiting for us at the museum were Kerry and Geoff Milner.  The Museum was interesting though missing two aircraft featured on their webpage – MiG 17 and P51 Mustang – aircraft I was looking forward to seeing were missing in action! (Editor's note: turned out these were in the other museum next door - another $5, please!)

Despite a light rain at the Museum only one car owner was deterred (shame) and drove home.  The rest, 13 hardy and hungry souls, continued on to the Sylvan Seafood Café by the seagull infested seashore for fish and chips and other oceanic fare.  The food was yummy and the company excellent.

Due to the length of the drive home only the Triggells and I were caught by the rain, which was heavy and wet in nature.  Due to the presence of a roof on my car I didn’t give a damn.  The Triggells however unexpectedly avoided the need for a refreshing shower upon their return home.
