    Hey Melissa,

    I just rang to book for Easter and was told there is no need to book an unpowered site...

    So they didn't take my name...Conservatively, I said I don't want to drive from Melbourne and be told there is no room and was reassured, no need to book and don't worry...

    So my name is not on a list there, but you can mark me down as coming...
    I simply couldn't not come, I would be jealous for six months...

    Of course I will mark you down Dave. Don't worry about not having a 'booking' as such, they have told the others that too. There is plenty of room available in the non powered sites. :)

    hi fellow kombi dudes and dudettes,

    I am hoping to make it to Canberra but as some of you may know I had a recent episode with a fire in the hole where the engine goes and had to rebuild the whole thing again. I am hoping to be back in action by then and would like someone to tell me if there is a convoy from Queensland or Northern NSW that I could join.

    You will be happy to know I now carry a fire extinguisher with me at all times and have ditched the petrol and gone back to straight LPG. Also had an upgrade to a 89 litre Gas tank and a 2300 engine but unfortunately won't be able to fit the supercharger on in time for the trip.

    Also have struck the sentence "So nothing should go wrong now" from my vocabulary!!!!

    Hope to see you all in Capital city.

    Jules.

    Hey Lorraine,

    Well I didn't want to admit this but I will be buggered if I can work out how to PM you so here are my details: email would be best as I can work out how to do that. jr_papertrail@bigpond.com. Are you guys driving straight through or stopping overnight. If you go straight through I may need to borrow a relief driver from someone if I can't talk anyone into coming with me. I need someone to hold the fire extinuisher at the ready just in case.......

    Very excited about another kombi trip.

    Jules.

    "Crow Eaters outnumber everyone else so far....head em off at the Hay Plain...where are the Vics? C'mon we need a few more"

    We've caught up now! Ten kombis listed for Melbourne - well done, but let's see if we can be the biggest contingent!

    But where are the Tasmanians? We'd love to add them to our convoy...

    Can't wait!

    I don't think we are able to join any convoy to Canberra, as we are leaving Adelaide early in the weekand planing to stop at an old friends place near Jindabyne before the last leg. Any one driving up from that end (South) or are we on our own?

    You could always join up with everyone in Yass (just north of Canberra). If you have UHF on ch18 you could co-ordinate with others when getting closer

    Hall perhaps?

    I considered that one briefly, Wild One, but we have a little one who will be 10 months old then. He can do the 3 hours from Jindabyne, but doubling back may be too much in one day for him. Depending on how we go on the day we could go up the Barton Hwy a little way to Hall and meet the convoy there. We have a UHF-CB, so can listen out for you all. An ETA for Hall would be great.

    With all the posts at the moment everybody that is not going must be getting jealous.

    Yeah, I'm getting jealous. I doubt my Kombi will be ready for rego in time and I don't know if I can even swing the time, yet.

    But who knows? With the M7, there's only 2 sets of traffic lights between my place and Canberra airport, so I might just take a day trip, or even longer and visit my brother.

    Just might pop in. ;)

    Hey Melissa: Is the caravan park on the main highway that turns off from the Hume?

    No doubt my navigator will tell me where to go? She always does!!!! Ha Ha!
