3fb Central Coast day out....

Despite me being unable to attend due to other commitments. I did manage to become involved late on yesterday, even taking Henry out for a minor shakedown...
From the sounds of things it was an excellent day out, with a few of the guys enjoying the southern end of the coast.
One comment though - I really do have to curse Slothy.............(NOW I GOTTA go buy myself a FLASH unit)(ps Thanx HEAPS for the loan of ya goodies)

I thought some of the others would like the following......

Re: 3fb Central Coast day out....

Yes, t'was a great cruise. Sparkles, Strider, Dark Horse and myself met at Thronleigh Maccas at 2 PM. Well Darkie arrived just before 2:30 PM but that's considered on time for him.

We went north up the old Pacific Hwy and met AusXH at the end. Where exactly we went after that I'll let one of the others explain as I'm not sure of the area myself, but we visited Woy Woy, Patonga, Terrigal, The Entrance and finally the Wulos residence.

Some pics from the day:

One the way to Patonga we stopped at Staples Lookout (or Point - I can't remember).



An elated Sparkles and even more elated Darkie once the On button was found on the video camera!


Parked at the lookout.




At the Skillion at Terrigal.



I wanted to walk up there and have a look-see so Strider, XH and myself went for a hike while Sparkles had a PowerNap™ and waited for Darkie to rejoin us.


The view from the top.



Once we got back down we decided to walk around the headland along the rocks.


At The Entrance just as it was getting dark (and I don't mean the Dark in the pic either! ).




Sparkles departed from Terrigal so it was just the 4 of us left. After loitering at The Entrance for a bit we visited Wulos for a quick chat that ended up going for about 3 hours if not longer.

Re: 3fb Central Coast day out....

Well since I forgot to bring my camera I have no pics to add.

But since Slothman is a little hazy on the in-between details... After I met up with the crew, we stopped for a drink break at Woy Woy where your car gets bombarded by the perched pelicans . Took a picturesque run up Mt Ettalong towards Patonga before yet another drink/icecream break.

From there we puttered through Umina and Ettalong on the way to Terrigal where we sat down to eat a well deserved lunch/dinner. Note: fishcakes make no substitute for a good fish cocktale. NB: They roll down the grassy knoll quite well.

We then parted ways with Sparkles aka 'Tourist Sparkles', and played 'hide and go seek' with Dark to fill in the time... A quick stop-over at The Entrance which was brimming with life before heading off to Wulos's place.

Damn good way to spend an afternoon, thanks fellas.

Re: 3fb Central Coast day out....

I was only fractionally delayed by a fuel stop prior to meeting the assembled crowd at Thornleigh. Interesting run through the Old Pacific Highway with several sections freshly asphalted, which held greater appreciation of driving style more concerned with losing specks of paint.

Yes luckly I had my store of Meguiar's which was pulled out of the boot on a couple of occasions throughout the day. Pedals discrepancy on a certain XR6 with bird wastage problems on the other.

I joined company with Tourist Sparkles later when the other lads were up playing tourist up the top of The Skillion. We saw a very nice Shelby Cobra with an equally impressive engine note cruise past as well as providing some commentary for the cricket match that was happening at the time.

Nice of Wulos to let us drop by, thanks for letting us come over. Lots of Ford (and Holden) stuff was talked about. As seen, photos were taken of the two Venom AU's, ably demonstrating the SlothFlash which worked a treat.

The run home saw Slothy, Strider and I stopover at a Macca's by the F3 which was shut, but the Boston Markets section was still open and served superb cappuccino's. Formation driving was again practiced on the longer 3 lane sections before we parted our ways home.

Thanks to all the guys that turned up, looking forward to the next one.

Yeahs, they made a lovely sight, except for Striders which disintegrated due to the high launch velocity. It was tragic but the debris was quickly removed by the seagulls.

Yeahs, 2 large flat whites and a danish make for a great Stop Revivie Survive pick-me-up! :s6: Yummy...
