I pick up the new Hyundai Terracan tomorrow at lunch time and am hooking up the Camp-O-Matic camper trailer and heading for Victoria on Thursday. Keep an eye out for a sandstone Terracan towing the camper with "BN" (NSW) black and white number plates and we will have a cold homebrew together. I will have plenty on board. Rough plan of trip is straight to Euchca or Ballarat or Bendigo and then to the Melbourne Cup next week. From the cup and off to the Grampions for about 10 days.
Looking forward to the trip and see how the new car performs.

gday brian.
congratulations on your new toy.
my choice of traval woould be echuca first.
then bendigo(we must try that home brew when you get here)
head on down to melbourne then you can stop in a ballarat on your way to the grampions.
echuca is a lovely spot it comes alive on weekends if the weathers nice 2 days there.
bendiggo heaps to see and look at if your into that 2 days as well plus time to have a drink with me lol.
melbourne get in and out as soon as possible lol.
ballarat heaps to see and do there again you need 2 days .
and the grampions cant spend enough time there.back by popular demand

I have just left Victoria on my way North. Was in the Grampians a couple of weeks ago. We were extremely lucky with the weather and had 4 of the best days you could hope for. Clear and warm 20 - 27 degrees. Grampians beautiful, some great off road tracks if you want to trst the new car. Not scratchy stuff.....just little water crossings steep incline/declines and 4wd necessary. See the places others don't. We also found alot more wild flowers off the beaten track.. Have a great time.

If you haven't already done it....I would suggest you go to the Grampians via the Great Ocean road jjst for the drive and cut you visit to the Grampians by a few days. you can still see just about all you need to see in the Grampians in 7 - 8 days no worries.

I vote the Great Ocean Road and the Otway Ranges far more impressive than the Grampians and would strongly suggest you go this way if you can if the TerraCAN. !!! Funny, aren't I ???

Do it.

Have a good one. Hope the weather clears for you. When I left Vic, it was cold and wet.

Slight change of plan. Have been laid up for a couple of days. Am heading for Bendigo for two days tomorrow (Fri 31/10/03) then off to the Cup and then the Grampions next Thursday. I have the camper topped up with homebrew so if you see the Terracan (NSW plates BN 534) then give me a yell for a coldy.
Looking forward to visit to Mexico.
