    Took the Kombi out for a post tune up run for Easter Bus Stop Kruize. All good so came home and paid for camping and dinner.
    Need to look at route and rough out a travel plan to arrive Thursday.
    Bend of Islands to Maleny - 19 hrs 57 minutes 1720 km.
    Not Kombi time? Probably allow 4 days unless we decide to do some sight seeing.

    2nd generation Kombi’s huh? o_O

    It’s just an overnighter for the 3rd generation Kombi’s, to be able to park up in time for beer’o’clock....

    Each to their own..... ;)

    Its not the 2nd generation Kombi. Its the older generation driver?
    Like Marks idea of a 3 pm prop but would need an early start to cover the K's.

    We are hitting the dock in Melbourne on the Thursday morning 25th March (the week before), then in two minds whether to just nail it and get across the borders or make the stops we had planned to see friends and family. Things have been known change pretty damn fast and we don’t want to get locked in or out of somewhere.

    Hard to make plans when covid can click in and plans go out the window. Same challenge for us with one less border involved. Thinking like you with a sprint if all is clear and meander back.

    My fingers are crossed for you and all the other interstate attendees. I know I need this catch up, it's been way too long. Missing out on last years event was so disappointing but hopefully with COVID seemingly under control we will all get to celebrate this year.....can't wait

    1400kms Cootamundra to Maleny via Sydney, overnight in Nambucca Heads, then a couple of nights in Brisbane with friends. Professor has been serviced, just needs to get registered and have a good wash. Looking forward to the road trip and a long overdue catchup with everyone.
    Cheers, John and Linda

    I know that we won’t be travelling anywhere near the coast......
    Hopefully the mice have eaten each other by the time we leave.

    Next weekend is supposed to be clear for 4 days then 4 days of only a few mm.
    Then fine for Easter.
    Well that's the forecast currently. ??
    That would be enough to lower all creeks to near normal.
    I don't know the layout of the campsite but maybe would avoid low areas that hold water if deep soils?
    But I'm sure Leo will have that covered.

    Currently creeks and Mary river only slightly elevated .

    There were heavy falls in Brisbane but didn't make it to lower sunny coast which only got moderate falls. Not flood material and rain reducing.

    Saw that it was in flood Dec. Nothing in the news at the moment.
    Found this:
    The highest February rainfall ever recorded at Maleny was in 1893 with 2733 mm, or over 109 inches, well in excess of the average annual rainfall. In three days over 1715 mm of rainfall was recorded at Mooloolah On the 3rd the highest 24 hours rainfall in Queensland was recorded at Crohamhurst with 907 mm. It is said the Obi-Obi Creek rose to an enormous height, reaching a point in Maple Street above Coral Street, which would have been submerged.
    Memo to self. Pack water wings.

    Being old school we only have an esky for cooling our supplies. Is ice available on site or close at hand? Friday is the only challenge.

    Not on site, Al. There is a lovely walk into the IGA in the centre of town (We DO NOT go to the shop with the Green logo that starts with W). Not sure what will be open on Good Friday.

    I've camped here MANY MANY times. Most of them I seem to be the bringer of torrential rain. The camp site is solid. No worries at all.
