Autotrail Rally at Classic Car Museum.

P1080059Looking rather impressive from the roof.

Recently we joined members of the New Zealand Autotrail Club for a rally at the Classic Car Museum in Hamilton.  The weather was very kind to us when we left home on Thursday afternoon heading for Taupo.  Arriving just before 7pm in torrential rain in Taupo we stopped in the centre of town to get some fish and chips before settling for the night overlooking the lake and Marina.

Up early next morning we topped up with water before heading to Hamilton in lovely sunny weather.  We had a stop to make in Cambridge to pick up some spare covers for our Duvalays.

I don't know how it happened but somehow Derek and I were selected to organise the next National Rally for Labour weekend. We have managed to secure a great site at the Levin AP& I Showground's so guess where we will be at Labour weekend?  We have offers of help so hopefully we will get the numbers that were at Hamilton.  Of the 200 New Zealand members nearly half are from Auckland or north of.  We will have to wait and see. Time will tell, fingers crossed.

And here was me thinking Derek spent some time in the army and would have learned how to avoid volunteering for ANYTHING!

Coerced is probably the right word Tom. Although we have volunteered and weekly drive the Health Shuttle from Levin to PN Hospital.
