Duk-tales: Iron Horse Run 2015 – Day 7 – February 27, 2015 The Tamworth Muster! With Rally Day 1 on mind it was time for a nice hot shower to remove the travel out of my pores but instead most campers got a cold shower at the campsite facility as rain had fried the electric […]

Duk-tales: Iron Horse Run 2015 – Day 6 – February 26, 2015 Last Yard to the Longyard! Woke up to a burning ring of fire.

Duk-tales: Iron Horse Run 2015 – Day 2

Duk-tales: Iron Horse Run – Day 2 – February 22, 2015 Thin End of the Wedge-tail. The stay at the Opal Inn, Coober Pedy was slightly marred by the poor disbursement of motel room keys. The Darwin boys got the room with the working A/c. As a good night’s sleep is paramount after many ales, […]
