The Tinks and Wades along with Trevor Lloyd and Noel Karppinen set off from EPIC for the quick dash along the
Federal Highway to Collector where we were met by the Listers who’d travelled across from Cootamundra to join us for lunch. Anthony Ockwell arrived a short time later, taking a more direct route from Murrumbateman. A fine selection of Triumphs (2500S, 2.5PI. Stag and Spitfire) lined up opposite the Bushranger Hotel.
A leisurely lunch in the beer garden provided an opportunity to talk Triumphs and catch up with Marian and Ian Lister. The Bushranger Hotel is a typical no-frills country pub serving reasonably priced meals - a possible option for a Sunday run in the future.
Anthony and the Wades opted for the long route home via Gunning and Gundaroo. This is certainly a more enjoyable drive than the highway, although meeting an oncoming truck on the single lane of bitumen from Collector to Gunning can set the heart racing!
