    We will be heading off from Newcastle and heading to Forbes via Dunedoo and Dubbo on Thursday 24th March. We would rather avoid Sydney the day before Easter break. Looking at leaving Newcastle at 6am and probably stopping for lunch at Dubbo.

    No worries - I hope we don't catch up with you!! I mean that in the best possible way - if we catch up, that means you have problems - and we don't want that! ;)

    Craig and I will be leaving Thursday but really doubt to be organised at 6am due to work commitments. I am sure Scotty will have the VB's ready for Craig when we arrive late Thursday lol!
    Looking forward to a great time once again!

    Hi Wayne - how about we meet up at the start of the Expressway at 6am? I know it sounds early but I don't want to rush but I still want to get there in day light.

    Come on Jacqui!! get Craig moving and join us - nah, it's ok - we will see you there with the beers on ice :)

    Thanks Mel, sounds like a plan. But lunch in Dubbo sounds like we will be traversing the black strip at Nanna speed? Cheers Wayne

    Will you be passing the Central Coast, if so we could link up at Ourimbah rest area. If so only set a small window and whoever is there great but if late would have to catch up?

    Sorry Phil - we want to avoid Sydney so we are going out through the Hunter Valley. It's tough for Central Coasters as you are already half way to Sydney - check the Google maps:

    Nana speed Wayne??? haha - I am driving Little Red. We will probably be further than Dubbo for lunch - we can just play it by ear but I have never driven out there before.

    Hey Mel , I was figuring a 4 to 4.5 hr trip. That would put us in Dubbo in time for Little lunch and well before Big lunch, but as you mention we can play it by ear ."Otto" was returned to his fightful owner last night without a single blemish and running tickety boo . Cheers , Wayne

    Sorry Mel, Major client requires my presence at Muswellbrook on the 24th mid morning so I will not be able to travel early morning, will most likely arrive Forbes Thursday night. Sad that not everybody understands the importance of a Bus Stop. Cheers Wayne

    Hey Guys, Thanks for the offer, if the timing is right we will definitely join you but unfortunately this client is a T crosser and an I dotter so I am expecting a late start for the pilgrimage to Forbes. Cheers Wayne & Rose
