And the winner is….

Trek 4 Kidz
Day 7 - Saturday 30th August 2014

Tenterfield to Woolgoolga
day's total 393.9 kms

The last day of our trek...
A frosty start in Tenterfield… Oliffe was pleased!
trek 1.. a horrible steep, winding road!! ….Another Whoops!… all OK
 A happy rock on the side of the road… having a fat time!.
 A photo shoot for our sponsors!
From tall gums to rainforests to the Clarence River and Nymboider National park ….the scenery was always changing… the dust on the roads didn't!!

Lunch break at Jackadgery… time to refuel.. clean the air filter.. and fix the dust lights

Truck lotto …the truck tyre is marked with numbers and people buy a number.. if, when the truck stops, your number is in line with  the plum bob then you win 1/2 the prize money..(the rest goes to Starlight).. no numbers lined up ALL week.. so Starlight did Very well!!…great fundraiser!

Finally the Beach … Woolgoolga.. we made it!!
Time to party and awards presented…
We were presented with 2 awards...
The 'Old Coots' Award!!…What The???… Did I hear right???  How embarrassing !!
( I think I probably aged 10 years over the week!…but.. seriously.. old coot??)
I didn't think Mr Rally Driver was going that slow!!

THEN we were called up for the 'Old Grey Fox' award… Really??
( a very prestigious award for being cunning!)
That was a big drop from being the outright winners last time!!
...But there is always next year..
It has been a privilege to help raise funds to help Starlight carry on their wonderful work with seriously ill children. The trek raised over $110,000.00!!
We had some wonderful support from people who bought raffle tickets, friends who gave us donations and supporters such as Australian Drilling Systems, Curtis Gant Irving Solicitors, the Brook Medical Centre and Finders Keepers Muswellbrook.
 A Huge Thank you all.

Back to reality now…
