Gday
Today is my 10th aniversary of being a member of the Exploroz assosiation. I did use Exploroz for a couple of years before being a member and found all connected with EO to be good people.
Since joining , i have done quite a few short trips , weekends , and longer trips less frequent. I have been to two national gatherings and had a ball at each. The first was in the Flinders and should have been called the Arctic Gathering , it was just cold and colder. The last was at Trilby Station in northern NSW. Much better climate. I have been to eight of the last nine Pyrenees gatherings . Mised the last one.
So to all you people that i have come across , thanks for the memories and hope there are many more.

Yep, well done Muz. It was great to see you and Wes at that Warraweena gathering a long time ago! Hopefully catch up again some time. I'm retired from work now so that might help

Retiring!! Good on you Phil. I'm wondering what that will be like, Janet and I are doing likewise at the end of the year! I'm sure it's going to feel strange for a while but I'm sure I'll be able to cope with it after 44 years of continuous work! Michael

Hi Muz

Well done for your 10 anniversary. Now you will have to keep a very close eye out for your 10 year service award......lol


Well done again and hope there are many more great years still to come.

Yay!! So proud to have you mate! We also just came across the renewal for our very first member (Member #10) who continues to renew his annual membership - making 16 years of Membership but he has NEVER posted on the site - there are quite a lot of Members that fall into that bracket as we reach all sorts of people with different reasons for having their Membership and that's all good. We are so thankful for the support of all our Members - but especially those like yourself who continue to stick with us through the cycles of change. We are just a small team and we struggle often but we are committed and passionate to keep ExplorOz viable and relevant. Members are ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL to our operations. May we continue onwards and upwards together.

Apparently you will be getting a sticker in the mail Muzbry...

You only get one though because you only paid your membership once! - I get one each year LOL

Congratulations on your long service and numerous contributions

Well done Muz, all one can really say, is, it's people like your self, that help make this site what it is... No one can buy experience.. Even the little encouraging message you sent me about organising a coffee club meeting up here, gave me that warm fuzzy feeling.. Ha.. All the best.. For the next 10.. Cheers Odog

thanks Muzbry.

Yes I am hoping to venture out on my own in May for a couple of short trips, once the grandkids are back at school, and have told my son and daughter in law that I wont be able to babysit one year old on a regular basis.
After that, as soon as my sister and brother in law are ready to travel in June and July I plan to accompany them, or maybe lead, a trip to somewhere...the route of which is at this time is still being planned.

Not sure whether you are aware that John died suddenly mid November and I am facing a very different rest of my life without him by my side. I have managed to tow my van away to Victoria on my first trip, and just this morning took it to Nowra, approximately 80 kms up the Highway, for long awaited warranty repairs. It will apparently be away from the yard for a couple of weeks at least.

It is amazing what you can learn to do when you have to..but I cannot contemplate how horrible life would be if I just stayed home alone. We loved our trips so much and had planned many more and I'm not ready to give them up until something prevents me from doing them.

And...I'm going to Vietnam (first trip overseas) in August for the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan. John was a Vietnam vet, a conscript, with TPI status however seemed to be such a fit and well man! I am sure it will be a very emotional trip for me, but one I feel I must do.

end of rant...sorry...but you asked!

cheers Heather

To all you that replied and i have met, I thank you .
May all the kangaroos on the road at night be small, may all your punctures be on someone elses vehicle, not an EOvehicle, may all your camping spots be level and soft enough to bunk on.May all your coffee be hot, may you never run out of refreshing drinks at the end of a long day.May all the rain be one day behind.

Muzbry,

You have missed 1 National Gathering where you attended with Little Wes at Silverton in 2011, how could you forget towing Little Wes the 100 odd km back to Dave B's place in Broken Hill ;)

Cheers Kev

Thanks Sir Kev, how oldness plays up on the brain . I have been to three gatherings, how remiss of me to forget the Silverton gathering with Dave B at the helm.

Hi Muz
Ten years congratulations, EO gave us the pleasure of meeting you, Cath and Little Wes and a lot of other members who we have either done trips with or caught up with at gatherings and have good memories of these times. It's good you put new EO stickers on so that people can see them and meet you and say ha your not a bad bloke after all.

10 years - well done Muz. So Muz did you get your new Life Member sticker in this week's post?
My start date was 30 Jan 2005 and boy has time flown by. Be interesting to see where some of the old members from back then who no longer contribute are now?

Cheers
