Neil Driscoll, better known as Dribbles around Bourke, is off on his annual adventure at the wheel of his trusty 1969 HT Holden Ute, towing his specially kitted out trailer.

Heading out early last Saturday, 23 July, Neil is travelling to Darwin and back again.

The trip didn’t start without incident though! Neil forgot to fuel up before he set out and was stuck at North Bourke for the first few minutes of his trip.

The first leg of his trip took him to Charleville, then he headed up toward Mount Isa and then on into Darwin.

Spending time with friends and attending the Darwin Cup, an eight-day race carnival, Dribbles will be staying at Phillip and Anne Marie Parnaby’s, Coolalinga Caravan Park.

The trip will also take in Kakadu National Park before making his way to Alice Springs to meet up with the group of people he travelled around Australia with last year.

The group is taking in the Alice Springs Truck Show and Red Centre NATS, an automotive lifestyle festival celebrating all things on wheels.

The distinctive orange ute was found on a tip in, of all places, Orange.
