3FB/FF (NSW) Blue Mountains Run 30th August 2003
As one of the sidekicks of the 3Fb crew i thought i'd kickoff by organising a long awaited cruise for Saturday 30th of August.
The trek is up the Blue Mountains but with abit of a twist. I have decided to guide the group through some of the scenic sites and roads.
We'll start by gathering at the West bound Macca's on the M4 motorway at Eastern Creek. From there we'll head up the M4 to Mulgoa Road in Penrith and stop at the Nepean River bank, for photos etc.
Then we will proceed to the infamous old Bathurst Rd twisties with a manditory detour through Mitchell's Pass. We follow the hwy back up the mountains from Emuplains with a few detours of the highway on the way for some interesting driving.
At this stage i'm planning to have a stop at Wentworth falls lake for a stretch and then have our final stop and feed at the heart of the blue mountains 3 Sisters/Echo Point.
Just a small point to outline, these 3FB cruises are about socialising, having a laugh, eating and cruising with like minded people about Fords and cars. We do not care what one drives. So i encourage all of you to come along and socialise with fellow fordforum members if you have this day free.
