Well my trip 1/2 way around the world is over and it is back to reality again
But a little get together, almost a month ago now, will forever be etched in my memories!!
Words fail me to describe the experience, to actually BE there, to see the places i have only seen on screen before, traveling on the roads that Max, Roop and Charlie, Sarse and Scuttle drove down, was just surreal, and to do it in the cars too!
I think the fact that nothing has really changed in 30 years made it all the more amazing,
Same roads, same landscape, same trees!
I had a few stills from the movie with me and it was really uncany how you could identify things that were there back then still there now!!

Huge thanks you everyone invloved, Scott and Peter and everyone at the Little River Historical Society for putting on a great event
To Nelson, Scott, Pat, Troy and Dan for having your cars there, Scott thank you for letting me drive Last V8-3 in the parade, and Nelson for the numerous runs out in your car, and to you and Scott P for the other location trips! And Peter B for the location tour part 2.
To all the Bike Guys, especially the Toecutter (man you were just great! lol), for puting on a good show at Kirks Bridge,
To Wrinkles for the guided tour of Cherry Lane!!
To everyone there who was involved in the making of the film, George Novak, Bertrand Cadart, Dale Bensch, Nic Gazzana, Andrew Jones, Vince Gill, Emil Minty, Dennis Williams, Murray Smith...
for sharing your memories and behind the scenes stories
And most of all thanks to Steve Millichamp for being such a star! That ride in Big Bopper with you out to "Anarchy Road" is something i will never ever forget!

Below are a few of my photos, these are mostly from the reunion weekend itself, i have a lot of location shots too, but still need to sort them out yet. Ill post them later on

This was the procession to the Cinema at Werribee on the Friday night for the screening of Mad Max
