Bedford Heaven...

This year's Bedford Rally will be held at Lance Cryer's amazing 'Bedford Heaven' at Puriri, just south of Thames on New Zealand's Coromandel Peninsula.
This site is an unique graveyard for literally hundreds of Beddies, true icons of New Zealand's on road activities.
Rally participants in their Bedford housebuses and housetrucks will park up next to these wonderful old wrecks and enjoy a Labour Weekend of camaraderie with other like minded souls.
Of course there'll be entertainment. Foodie feasts too. Drinks will be downed and tall tales will be told around the campfires.
And The Flying Tortoise will be there, reporting from the event...

  1. What wonderful icons of the past. Have a great rally.

  2. Brilliant pics - love how the lichen & moss have added to the characters. V x

  3. It seems a bit like having a Family Re-Union in a cemetery - look out for the Ghosts of times past .........
