    Paul & Lynn and Dale & I will be leaving the Gold Coast about 10am Thursday and expect to arrive at Sawtell at about 2pm. It would be great to convoy up with someone else on the way.

    Guys,

    The Blues Fest is on at Byron that weekend, might be advisable to skip the traffic going into Byron and meet on the highway or near Ballina?

    Any suggestions??

    We'd be keen to join up with some fellow Kombi Kruisers around the Byron area on Friday, but agree, going into the town of Byron when Bluesfest is on would be a nightmare!

    I can suggest the Yelgun rest area, on the Pacific Hway. Huge place with toilets, playground. The driver reviver station is there. It is about 10-15 minutes north of the Byron turn off.

    hi Stu
    Instead of Dreamworld, maybe a good meeting start point is the BP/Maccas at Chinderah. (On the left a few km over the boarder) Coffee and food (and fuel)!

    Could pick up more at Yelgun

    Once you get on the M1 the trip doesn't do much of interest. I was suggesting the first fuel stop is at the servo just north of Grafton on the left. Then on to Sawtell

    Hi Leo,
    I've got another member to meet at Dreamworld anyway but am more than happy to stop at the BP at Chinderah to meet up with you & others no problem at all ! ;)

    I will be leaving my daughters' at mitchelton at about 5am and chasing the rest of you down the highway. If you see a Kalahari Tan camper in your rear view mirror blaring really loud Newton Falkner music, please slow down and wait for me!

    If you leave Mitchie at 5am, you will be in front of us! How about 6am? - I'm just down the road from you at Ashgrove.

    Remember QLD is an hour behind NSW. Times need to be adjusted once you cross the boarder or the NSW crew will be there an hour too early !
