    Saturday was more sightseeing that saw us take in a few wineries, the cider factory, the lavender farm, a christmas shop and a couple of second hand shops north of Stanthorpe before having a few drinks with the crew to celebrate Scallops birthday back at the caravan park

    Sunday, we were off again sightseeing to the south. got to see lots of interesting things including more wineries, chocolate shop, more second hand shops and Wallangarra station.

    Can't add much too what Inc has posted other than the County had a little moment in the main street. Backing out of a park, it failed to proceed so wound it back in on the starter. With a bit of help from the local RACQ, we found the rotor button needed a bit of a clean and we are all good. On a side note, the RACQ bloke is a Scottish gent that did some time with TVR and has a very good working knowledge of the little bent 8. .

    Over a relaxing coffee on Sunday morning we caught up with a local Landy nut, s3109lr. He (Steve) has a S3 hardtop project (and a few spares ).

    I kept a tally of fuel and Kms for the trip and from Bundy to Brissy, Brissy to Stanthorpe and then back home to Bundy, the County (88 V8 5 speed running 238/85-16) got 14.85 Lts/100Kms.

    Thanks to all that attended, quite a relaxing and enjoyable llooonngg weekend.
