Well guys,

I`ll see you all there. My first corowra! Finally was able to get the go ahead last week to head on down- damn university and there lazyness!

The hilux and i are heading down on friday morning from sydney (unfortunately MV less, -if you need a passenger for a trip, let me know!).

So look out for me, i'll be the young bloke with a g503.com hat on and a AMVCS shirt, bright eyed and bushy tailed (if i had one!)

Cant wait!

Cheers,
Ian.

Default It's on...

Yes, folks, this is the week, so you can expect some of your Aussie friends to take leave passes from the forum for a few days to bask in the assembled 120 or so tons of tracked steel which make up our Carrier force
I'll hopefully be back online next Tuesday with lots of pictures.

The Carrier video I'm making will be mostly shot in high-definition and will have a full dolby surround soundtrack - it will be available as a DVD in PAL and NTSC formats, and believe me, you'll get plenty of action!

Default Missing the place that starts with "C"

I will be missing Corowa for the fist time in 15 years, Work has draged me to South Aussie with the race car. So we don't talk about that place with all the carriers.

Well, what fun that was! 20 Australian built Carriers (17 in the record making parade), a total of 130 Military Vehicles and hundreds of attendees. It was certainly the biggest event yet with everyone wanting to be there (Where's Euan?). One person drove 3500km from Katherine, Northern Territory (and 3500km home!) and I spoke to International visitors from New Zealand, United States and Luxembourg.
Mishaps were relatively few (3 carriers threw tracks, 1 GPA sank in the river and some people were stung by Bees), but everyone had a good time and there is talk of repeating the Carrier theme again in 2-3 years time. However, that rumour is probably being propagated by Euan.
Star attraction (Well, it turned up late and left early, so it must be a celebrity!) was the 2pdr Anti-Tank Carrier:
