When we last reported on the personal travels of John and Kathy, and Graham and Judy, they were heading for Port Augusta SA.
They enjoyed Happy Hour yesterday afternoon at Woomera Travellers Village with Peter and Sandra who are also members of the ACC. With ACC stickers on their RVs, it did not take long for them to find each other in the Park! For Judy and Sandra who used to work together, it was a surprise meeting after 20 years.
That's what's great about the ACC, the Club for all RVers ...where Friendships and Adventure begin ...and friendships also rekindle!
Don’t forget to look out for John and Graham on the road and say hello.

The Lone Trekkers is a Special Interest Group (SIG) for Australian Caravan Club members who travel around this beautiful country of ours on their own.
Our Lone Trekkers have their own Facebook page and communicate on their own members’ forum so that no matter where they are in OZ, Lone Trekkers can join up with each other for a tagalong, give support, share experiences or just meet for a cuppa or Happy Hour. Some of our Lone Trekkers from around the country are currently gathering for a muster at Bordertown in South Australia.
So if you are travelling solo, why not join the ACC today and join The Lone Trekkers SIG?

They’d love you to pop in and say G'day - just look for the Club sign on the Pajero.
