    Hi everyone,

    I'm based in Sydney heading up to the Bus Stop on the Friday, early in the morning.

    Is there a Sydney based members meetup planned or possibly one from the south heading through Sydney on the Friday I can join??

    If anyone is in Sydney, and nothing is planned and you want to join me, let me know.

    Hi Mark.
    We spoke about this today at our monthly meet.

    As Newcastle is only 4 hours from Bonny Hills and the fact that you dont want to get to Bonny Hills before 2PM (the caravan parks usually dont allow people in until then) I was thinking of meeting up with the crew that is coming from Victoria, at about 10.00am at Hetherbrae.
    Now check with VanHousing's thread on their convoy, although I think they may be coming through Sydney the day before. So you may have couple of others join you from Sydney and then meet up with us at Hexham. I dont know how bad the traffic is going to be there.

    Carl and Juz have been kind enough to offer us a a place to stay near Woy Woy on the Thursday night, which we will gratefully accept.... :)

    We will be driving the length of the M7 on Thursday afternoon, after staying the night west of Yass. At this stage it looks like we will be a small convoy of 4 or 5 kombis, so we would definitely appreciate a few ring-ins.... :)

    We will definitely meetup with Melissa, Alpal etc near Hetherbrae or Hexham. :)

    (Check out the links in my sig below for more details about the Vic trip...)

    I might join everyone at Heatherbrae cause its probably easier than getting off the freeway and going into Kariong.

    Is there a time and place organised yet for Heatherbrae?

    Hetherbrae is only about 10 minutes beyond Hexham. Melissa suggested a 10am meet-up at Hetherbrae, so you could meet us there, or hook up with us near Hexham or Kariong (about 80 minutes before Hetherbrae) as we drive through.

    I'm happy for the 10am at Heatherbrae. Seems to be the easiest option.

    At Heatherbrae there is a Shell servo with a good area to pull off the road and wait for the convoy there. Its on the left - the first servo after the Hexham bridge.

    We will also meet you all at Hetherbrae, although in the Ford Falcon.
    We will be known as the KC support vehicle!
    Hopefully join the convoy for the way home after we pick up Kilallea!
