    Woz,

    I think this is kind of that as well as other things.

    The last day of our adventure up to the Gold Coast starts @ Sawtell Caravan Park just north of Nambucca.

    Some punters are staying in Coffs Harbour and have a head start on us but all going well we will all get there in time to throuw the awning up and get settled.

    Have you made any plans for the final leg of your east coast tour?

    We are late risers and like to have breakfast and a SSS (shit, shower shave) before we leave (well I do anyway).

    So no earlier get away than say 9:30am from Sawtell.

    Bernie,

    Your coming up aren't you?

    Probably going to be a soggy one - but thats not unusual for a kombi event.

    Hi Scott,

    Alice and I have six days to get up there so have not really thought beyond the first night which will be somewhere in East Gippsland. Perhaps. If we don't end up heading in a completely different direction. We never like to do much planning on these trips.

    Alice and I are also late starters, as we enjoy sitting around drinking coffee, chatting and enjoying the morning ambience before heading off. It's not fun if you are rushing!

    We will more likely have a better idea whether we will pass through Sawtell once Woger decides which way he will take us.

    Hi Mark

    We have stayed at Red Rocks Caravan Park on the way down South a few times. Nice little spot.

    I am not sure John - I don't even know if anyone is going to be travelling with us, which makes booking a caravan park risky. Do you have any suggestions or did you have any plan? I thought you were going to be at Bluesfest..

    That Red Rock caravan Park just past Coffs looks like it might be a good spot to stop.
