This trip is open to anyone that helped during the food the fires drive, if you cooked something, donated something or delivered something you are eligible to attend this trip.

Over the last week Harrison and I have been busy catching up with people in Eastern Victoria that have been fire and drought affected over the last year. We have arranged a few farm stays as a reward for the people that helped so you can see the recovery and what you put all that hard work toward.

The plan is to stay near Bairnsdale on the Friday night (arrive at any time in the arvo).

Saturday we will head to a number of farms for both morning tea and lunch. 

Saturday night will be staying on a station up near the border in Wulgulmerang where we will have roast dinner and enjoy the fire.

Sunday we will head to toward Buchan with 2 stops along the way before heading in to Buchan for lunch with a few of the locals. Then head toward home.

I will be arranging heaps of prizes and surprises for the trip.
