Following Rod's message I have looked at the list of tours in "Five to 500" and found a lot that were not included in the Fifty Year document I prepared.

I have therefore produced the First revision of the list, which can be found in "Frank's folder" in the Files section of this Yahoo Group.
I have also deleted the first version of the document.
I still believe there are many LRRSA trips missing from the second 25 years.

Thanks for that.
I cannot help with the GGGs, hopefully others can.
Thanks for the information on the June 1975 Tasmanian trip, that was
a significant omission.

I am trying to unscramble the Grand Gippsland Gallivants.
One of them took in Port Welshpool, Port Albert?
One of them took in Wonthaggi & Kilcunda (or was that the return
from Port Albert?)
One of them was based at Lakes Entrance, with charter ferry up North
Arm to Mississippi Creek, and to an island; then we walked the
tramway next day.
On trip missing: Queens Birthday 1975.
Friday night: fly into Devonport, overnight in Formby Hotel.
Saturday: Two? hired cars to Hobart & Ida Bay, including a ride.
Overnight in a Hobart hotel.
Sunday: to Zeehan, and inspect remains, also Williamsford.
Monday: to Devonport and home.
