only 17 more to go.

Well done Western Australia.
Come on Tassie and New Zealand.
For those Aussie posters there are indeed 14 openings as of Friday OZ time. Think there were some 25 openings the week before. Warragul is perfect Model T touring country and there are 7 days of touring! The main venue has camping with hookups for $20AU per night and lots of motel and hotels within 5-8km.
David - Just a little South West? My GPS said 8255 miles (some 13200km) if I could do it straight from here.
Bad connection in here at work today.
Hi Joss. Only a little south west. A couple of hours flight .easy.
14 is now incorrect.
Hmmmm. If I fly from Melbourne to Los Angeles the flight time is a negative 4 hours. Guess it is some sort of time machine. So definitely easy time wise to fly to US. However, why do planes take 32 hours to arrive there?

Did the 1998 Victoria tour! Had a super time! What? No one from the ACT?
I was able to see a great bit of the tour route last weekend courtesy of Robby, David, Warwick, Alan, Frank, Neil and others. I also talked some more about the tour today with Bruce and Chris who were showing their cars at Kings Gardens right now.
Robby spent the better part of his birthday making sure I would see his country. I also would like to thank his missus Christine for letting him bomb around with a foreigner all day.
If you trust this Yank, know that they're organizing one heck of a tour! As far as this country, think of a Model T Utopia complete with courteous drivers.
It was great to meet you today Tom.
The National Rally in September will be great.
Thank you Tom for those great words, it was a pleasure to have you drive with us.
All the best heading back to the states this weekend, we do hope to see you again in September.
I will see you on Saturday for that small side trip.
