I know I have. As has my mate Keith. Keith and I, we both love a good challenge and we've done all sorts of trips together in my beloved 1930 A Model Ford. So this time Keith and I crossed Australia from the eastern most point of the continent to the western most - Byron Bay to Shark Bay/Steep Point - right through the guts - in the old girl. It was a big and tough trip, likely our last big trip together. We had many flat tyres, we broke down, we were bogged, we slept by the side of the road. But we agreed at that start we wanted to make the trip worth it and to have the trip stand for something."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Join us for the WORLD PREMIERE of the documentary about the trip. see the thrills and spills of Tom and Keith's adventure in the 1930 A Model Ford.

With a formidable sense of humour and an enthusiasm bordering on inspired frantic madness, he has spearheaded the rebirth of a dying country town by turning his bakery into a phenomenon of Australian small business, which continues to gather strength and speed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                DIRECTORED & PRODUCED BY MRL MEDIA.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     THANK YOU TO RICHARD & PAULA NICHOLSON AND JOHN LEWIS FOR SUPPORTING THIS PROJECT
