A few days at the beach, camping with your family. Sounds like a good time, right? Maybe, but don't forget to factor in: * the motobike riding bogan * an older sister in love * a tent which is suffering a spiritual crisis * a surfer named Gnarly who's idea of fun involves exfoliating sparkplugs!

It will appeal greatly to those interested in the history of Great Western Locomotive development.
