Day 1
We are finally off.  Shortened our holiday plans we are speed tripping to the Nats.
Not much to see or do.  Only 3 ways out of Townsville heading south.  We have seen it all.
Big trip today, ended up free camping at a mates place for the night.


Thanks Smiths Mechanical for giving the car the once over as usual

Day 2, had no internet reception. Dam Telstra in rural south west QLD. A lot more driving again. Found a wreck ute in a paddock stopped to take pics. Free camped on the side of the road under a tree. Will cross the border later today. Really looking forward to seeing all the old faces again.

You know it's been cancelled right? Sorry to be the bearer of sad tidings but you might not  get let across the border in to NSW.

Day 3
Last night camping.  Just crossed into the North of the State.
Can't wait for that Home style accommodation for the next 5 days. 

Found a nice roadside mound of dirt to camp beside

Another FC in a paddock.  Old bugger wouldn't sell any of the chrome or parts on the front floor.

Enjoying our honey moon, Haven't killed each other yet.
These long drives are becoming tedious.

We are going to take out longest distance travelled again.

I'll have a flat white with 2 sugars when we catch up at the Nats.
Looking forward to reading your dairy.

I should start thinking about starting mine one day 😁

For those of you that guessed what we were doing, well done.

Finally arrived at our Home Stay Accommodation.
Yep our place. 
We have been camping for 3 nights, moving around the back yard to get us in the spirit.
This would have been our 5th Nationals (ten years) and we donít want to miss a great weekend. (and our honeymoon)

We are having our own Nats at home. YOU CAN ALL PLAY ALONG, go to Facebook FE-FC Holden Enthusiast page

Starting with our usual catch up tonight.
Yep those that know us, its Port and Tim Tams around someoneís camp. Its going to be our Camp tonight.
We will post pics.  Anyone that wants to join in please do. Put Videos and pictures up all weekend.
All of you that do other things please put up what you usually do.

Follow the usual Nats set up.

Tonight,
All those that arrive early. 
Hamburgers somewhere in town.
Then Drinks all night.  Some of us till wee hours in the morning.
Friday
Cruise somewhere, followed by lunch.
Go home sleep, recover from last night.
Then meet and greet with our favourite Fish and Chips
Saturday
Another cruise to the show and shine.
Dinner somewhere nice.
Sunday
Big cruise followed by the Games day.
QUEENSLANDER
Presentation dinner and dress ups.
Monday
Car racing
Pyjama party to say goodbye for another 2 years.
Tuesday
Reluctantly head home.

Because we are all in lockdown, most of this needs to be in your back yard.  Because we usually spend quiet a bit of money on our holidays, we are going to get take away a few times to help boost the economy in Townsville.

If you are keen to follow or join us for the weekend, follow us on Facebook. FE-FC Holden Enthusiast
