yeah it pissed down occasionally......

the cruise was alright, not a massive turnout but still enough!
we lost a couple of cars going towards the expressway, but they caught up eventually, it was alright till we got to victor then a couple of cars left......then i got petrol and then got lost cos the cruise went on a different route......then i went to the finish point after joining up with my mate in his ef xr6 and there was no one there!

so it was a bit weird for me but still a decent cruise

Good turnout, some nice cars there, for sure....

Glad it all went well, it rained intermittently at our ACT cruise too! Nothing like greasy roads tho, heh heh heh....

Cheers!

We gotta get something sorted 4 then next cruise so ppl arent getting split up all the time.
-fill up b4 the cruise.
-if ppl get stopped at lights the whole cruise should wait.
-if u r gonna go a diff way, make sure evry1 else is going 2
sunfin like that ya think?

Watch this space - soon we'll have new regulations that will apply to all our cruises, which will also factor in driver behaviour, etc.

Nice pics by the way. :s5

that sounds like u r going to make ff meets boring like all the other cruises in adelaide trav :)
Best thing about the ff cruises i have been on, is it is younger guys that dont mind seeing some1 going sideways or laying a bit of rubber-at the appropraite time of course.

This is something we'll have to discuss - but at any rate I have good reason to mention that this matter will have to be addressed in some way.
