    8:15-8:30 sounds much better than 7:00 am. Just another one of the many benefits of living on the central coast ;):D

    We’re still keen to join from the Central Coast somewhere along the way. We’re not booked into the hotel on Wednesday night though and just plan on free camping somewhere nearby and meeting you guys on Thursday morning.

    David,
    If my reading is correct, you are leaving the Narooma Farnboro Motel on Thursday 18th April at 9am?
    Can you please PM me your number.
    Pretty sure Anita picked us up a nights accom in Batemans Bay already. But if we are up and about and want to leave there by 8am I might give you a call to let you know we are coming and join you (less a fuel stop).

    It is unlikely, having never been down that way we might make the drive (Which is 3.5hrs from Batemans), a casual drive over half the day and arrive mid afternoon. As it is a long drive for kids. But we may also be keen to get down too. Play it by ear on the day before. Alternatively, if you lot are not driving solid and stopping here and there it might suit as well.

    Very correct but I'll be on 'Kombi time' so happy to wait!
    I guess there's not much point getting to Mallacoota before book in time;). A wander/meander/casual suits us fine (not sure of the fellow travelers approach?). We were parents of young once.....a long time ago;). Be good if we could cruise with you folk also:D.
    Cheers

    Reckon there won't be a huge opportunity to hurry as getting through some of the town's will be quite congested being the school hols & very popular holiday places. Hope you all have a great run, Phil & I will be waiting to see you all pull in. Cheers :D

    I haven't carried any spares for 39 years:oops:. Probably could have done with a spare clutch cable (or 10) over the years;) but I now have a mostly full spares kit under the back seat so we can make Mallacoota. Hey...we'll probably need none of it now we've got them:p. KC has made me a bit paranoid:mad: about what can go wrong & thanks for the knowledge of what I should carry (a spare kombi;)). This to ease my anxiety:eek:. Good maintenance covers all the next bit.....Propper Planning Prevents anxiety:rolleyes:.
    Clutch cable
    Accelerator cable
    Fuel pump & filter
    Air Flow Meter
    Ignition switch
    Cylinder Head temp gauge
    Dissy cap
    Plug lead
    Spark plug caps
    2 batteries
    Jumper leads
    Jumper pack
    etc,etc
    Mallacoota or bust;););):D.
    Cheers

    That’s one of the main reasons I have comprehensive insurance.

    You tend to find the only time you need it, is if you haven’t got it. ;)

    There's comprehensive & 'comprehensive'. NRMA don't carry what may be needed.....well other than a bit of fuel if I run out:oops:. Just being comprehensive;). And also a spare set of keys always with the bus:).

    No, insurance doesn’t cover vehicle breakdowns...... that’s another fee with a difference service. o_O

    I was simply referring to having the right stuff with you, means you’ll probably not need it, (insurance included). ;)

    That basically what I was talking about.If you have spares and can't fix it ,somebody that stops to help might be able to as David mentions:rolleyes: cheap insurance. We are all on the same page,just different ways of explaining it.

    Haha. I carry spare cables for my bus. And spare cables for lowlights. They were in the shed and are light. Figured someone may need them along the way.
