    Hi fellow Kombians

    Sharyn and I will be driving Elly-May up starting Thursday morning and staying in Bathurst overnight for a short run to Forbes Friday morning.

    We're planning to give Elly-May a really easy run. After all, she is only a 1600 with single carburettor and she's nearly 50 years old. So we're avoiding the M1/F3 and anywhere where we can't sit on about 50-60 mph. It will be less up the hills (like there's any choice in that :) ). And we will be having lunch/toilet/oil check stops too.

    I'll be going Wyong to Berowra Boat Ramp via Dog Trap Road, Peats Ridge Road, Pacific Hwy and Berowra Waters Ferry. Then to Bathurst via Cattai Ridge Road, Kurmond Road, Bells Line of Road and then Lithgow and Bathurst. Stops at the ferry and then Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens for lunch at about 1:45 pm.

    Anyway, if there's anyone that can handle the snail pace and wants to tack onto our trip to Bathurst we would love the company. Here's the plan:

    24/3/16 Wyong to Bathurst
    9:15 am Meet at Wyong McDonalds (the Maccas near Tuggerah Station)
    9:30 am Depart Wyong McDonalds
    11:30 am Meet at Berowra Waters Boat Ramp car park (West side of Ferry crossing i.e. go across the ferry)
    1:30 pm Arrive Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens Mt Tomah
    4:30 pm Arrive Bathurst

    It's under 3 hours to Forbes from Bathurst (176 km through Orange) but we will do that trip the next morning.

    Here's my plan in map form without the stops:
