Same as last year. I hope it just as successful too.
The stall/space is paid for already.

Here's the 90sec swap site video... and you're right, I can't see you there.

No what I meant I must have missed the communication that REMLR  is having a site at the swap meet this year.

Arrived in Corowa on Friday in a Perentie, shared the driving from Sydney. Some light rain this evening which will help to keep the dust down. Looking to be a great week with interesting vehicles turning up.

Having a good time. Time is going fast —thurs night already. We are in central rice bowl. Blighty in the riverina, or more correctly, canalarina. Paul's mk3 blew its fanbelt in the last 20km before the destination.
Top days and weather so far. Its a cool breeze tonight in the pub carpark too. Goldilocks sort of cool. Tucker was good too.
We have met all the MV acquaintances and caught up on people's projects. Very enjoyable Corowa....

The place is packed. It's the biggest swim in I've seen.
Went for a swim in the Murray River in a Stalwart yesterday.
Must check the river to see what is floating. I heard there were a few No5's in there earlier.
I've taken hundreds of pics.
