It is looking likely that we will be able to get away for this event. We will be coming over from WA. towing our van.

We will be going to Melbourne first and my questions are:

anyone going from Melbourne up thru Broken Hill etc and could we tag along?

On the homeward trip:

anyone returning via Strezlecki Track to SA and could we tag along?

cheers

G'day Warfer,

I'm sure there would have to be someone going across the Simpson to Dalhousie but unfortunately it won't be us with a caravan in tow.

We'll have a beer at Innamincka tho'.

cheers

GB,

Are you after the most furtherest travelled to attend award??

Cause if you are make sure you bring your own prize LOL

Looking forward to meeting you there.

Cheers Kev

GB, Lucky would be going from Melbourne and possibly towing a Base Station. He says it 'may turn up' but I guess isn't holding his breath.

We would be going from the Western end of the Great Ocean Road, just three hours West of Melbourne with Kim in tow. Not sure if the GOR is on your itinerary this time. 45km from Warrnambool.

Should be plenty travelling from Melbourne though.
Cheers,
Who?

Hullo John,

It would certainly be easy to meet up somewhere in NW Vic enroute to Broken Hill.

We drove the GOR when we went over to pick up our van last year. Great drive for the passenger !!

I hate to think what it would be like pulling a van thru those twisty bits in the Otways.

cheers

Yeh, GB, could do just that. An EO member up that way too, we may catch up on along the way, that is assuming we get there. Of course in Broken Hill we may pick up Dave B too.

Talking to the culprit with the Base Station as destinct from Space Statiion, the Innamincka trrip will be the maiden voyage. He hasn't got it yet, but told him that heaps of pepole were dropping crap through it at the Caulfield Racecourse yesterday.

Can imagine not wanting to tow a big van through the GOR. Our skinny one can get around corners and close white posts easily.

Will have to see what is happening closer to the time I think. Have a possible int. trip to work on too in August. Nothing sure on that either, otherwise off too the the deserts!
Cheers,
Who?

I'm in Broken Hill, and as far as I know, there are a few others coming this way.

Not sure of the dates though.

Come and join us if you like.

Hi GB

We are probably leaving Melbourne on 21st June but might end up being a week later - not sure really. If we leave on 21st June we will probably head up the coast way a bit more.

Looking forward to Innamincka - will be great to get away.
