    Yeah maybe we will go out to Nimbin , i haven't been out there for 6years and never in a kombi. I remember the road out there was pretty bumpy.We are in Byron for a few more days and the surf is pretty small so if its rainy we might do the trip to Nimbin

    Mate, when you first started this thread I was so envious.....

    Since I was a teenager, going on a 'north coast' trip was always special, so many great places and surf spots. Great time of year too - water is still warm but not too many tourists around like summer.

    Good onya and I hope you're having a great trip! :cool:

    The roads have improved (a bit :lol: ) don't go via the suggested route on your GPS but through Lismore, much easier.

    Track me down at either 'Fashionating' or 'Treasure and Trash' and I'll give you a Kombi Konvoy poster for this years MardiGrass. Lorraine :)

    Nah - there are masses of tourists round and has been like that for the last 3 weeks. Can't complain though as I was a tourist once myself.....

    Glad you had a great time up north, Barf! :cool:

    But you really missed it - Little Austi, Sharkeys, McCauleys & Sandon were going off the whole time you were gone.... :p

    Just kidding mate, I'm just jealous. :lol:
