    Have no Idea how to get to Forbes was going to set GPS & take from there. Just a thought if the Newcastle convoy passes the Central Coast then could link up with them.

    Well looks like the Newcastle mob are not passing central Coast so will be going via Sydney, any suggestions of meeting place and time.

    Haven't thought about it yet. There may be a convoy from Sydney so will wait and see. I'm taking my bay so you may be too quick for me Phil.

    Google maps say 4 hours 43 minutes from Sutherland Shire to Forbes. Is there an official multiplication rate for traveling in a Kombi?

    Firstly, doubt google maps......if you can leave home in the Sutherland Shire, and expect to be in Forbes 4 hours 43 minutes later, it's just not going to happen in any car, unless there are absolutely no other vehicles on the road.

    Closer to 5.5 hours with a straight run and no stops in a vehicle doing the speed limit + 10% for a pre 1979 stock kombi = around 6 hours driving time. ;)

    Perhaps all Thursday convoys leaving from Sydney region meet up somewhere for lunch never been to Forbes but somewhere around Bathurst could be an option
