The Mighty Minis of Sri lanka turned up a few hours early for International Moke Day having a twighlight run on the day before but still a lot of nice Mokes and supporting cast of Minis turned out. View their day out on their website
This was our first IMD in Belgium, but certainly not the last ! We're lucky enough to have many minifriends within driving range, and gathered 3 mokes and a schmitt (the French, short "moke") PLUS 4 mini pick-ups as well. Reason for this is the 50th anniversary of the pick-up-model, so the pups were also invited to share the special moment.
We had a good day out we came across some very very heavy rain but we stilled carried on. The drive was fun but would be great in the dry, as seeing out of the windscreen at time was difficult.
Parked out side the Pub at Wollombi and had a bit of a look around.When we got back to the pub it was quite full so Smokey as I decided to travel to Cessnock for Lunch before heading home.
With other plans having fallen through, we decided to go it solo today. The weather was impossibly bleak, pouring rain and miserable, but we made the most of IMD anyway. We did a round trip of around 130kms, travelling from the Coast over 2 mountain ranges, through picturesque Kangaroo Valley and onto Fitzroy Falls, and then back home again.
IMD started out a little chilly in Hobart but quickly turned into a sunny fine day (although there's still a bit of a nip in the air). We had one of our best turnouts with 10 Mokes, many of them coming along for the first time. We started off with a short run out of town, then headed into the foothills of Mt Wellington.
The tour with my family started at home with best late summer weather and we enjoyed driving all the small roads through the mountains.Maybe it was our last drive with beautiful weather before the winter comes and the Moke has to stay in the garage until next year.Best regards and a happy Moking season,
International Moke Day started in Adelaide with a meet up with the South Australian Moke Club to view the Bay to Birdwood while some others took a short cruise and visited some Moke works in progress. Reports and pictures by Dave and Pete. Still looking for images of the some of the other Mokes that watched the Bay in a Day.
Here i am on IMD 2011 with the event i was planning on cancelled due to wet weather, (we have had about 20mm here this morning) so I thought i might add a bit to the thread. i was a bit dissapointed that the day was cancelled because was going to meet a few forum members for the first time, Oh well that will happen in good time.
