Five Mokes, John, Peter H, Graeme&Collete and Justin and his boys departed Port Melbourne on an overcast but pleasant Sunday morning and made quicktime to the first pick up point at Mordy where we found Gordon, Max and Kevin & Judie. A short wait for Paul M. to join us and then on to Frankston to meet Tony and Maz with a flying pick up with the next stop a toilet break and lollies in Mornington. Peter P. joined as as we passed through Rosebud while Mitchell on his L's joined the Moke Express around Blairgowie. We rolled into the footy ground at Sorrento right on 12 midday and then more Mokes came in to join us. I am not sure what other people did, but I inspected a few Mokes for people while I saw other Mokes coming and going and someone taking a rough count suggested there were 25 Mokes there at some time, with 20 being the most together.
By the time I was ready to leave there was only 4 mokes left to tackle the back roads to the AusPlant Nursery at Arthurs Seat and then along so really nice little roads around Red Hill south and back to Melbourne via the Western Port Hwy with Peter H. and I being the last to split at Warrandyte. No breakdowns, on time and and nice weather so a good day to be in a Moke.
