    Yes they usually do. You will find there will be a lot more activity on this thread after the Bus Stop. I'm hoping the posters will be out this week, checking this morning.

    Glad you will be joining us. I am just to days back from The Bus Stop and can now start concentrating on this event.

    I have just added some details to the first post re times etc. At this stage there is NO poster for this year, it just hasn't happened :(. I have just contacted Alan, the organiser and he is still waiting to hear back re a parking/ camping venue but should know more after this Friday's MardiGrass planning meeting.

    It is typical 'on Nimbin Time', it will happen, just keep an eye on this thread for updates. :D

    No, Alan didn't get to the meeting, he is not a well man, but assured me that he has someone (Michael Balderstone) working on it for us. As soon as I hear anything I will post it up.

    My place is out, the driveway to the house block, where we have parked 41 kombis previously has been totally washed out and only 4wd accessible ATM. It would cost a heap to fix and we simply don't have the time or energy to do it.:(

    I know it's Nimbin's time to shine, but $60 seems a bit steep considering we'll be leaving pretty early to get to the Gold Coast show. Where else can accommodate so many kombis though? And where will still have available space?

    It's not that far - just drive home.

    Just wait a couple of days and see what comes up. I will be away for the next two days and will get onto it when I get back. This is not a Kombi Club exclusive event, we are invited to participate, it is for all kombi owners and it is run by Alan who's number is on the poster. Give him a call, he may have some news.

    It is definitely worth joining in and a fun time.

    Nimbin is a bit different from anywhere else, things do fall into place, just not in our expected time frame.

    there is usualy parking along the road outside Rainbow power and other campers all over the place.
    think thats about $15
    We are lucky to usually have access to rainbow power that keeps people away from the kombis but cant this year due to renovations .

    Its our own responsibility re camping as the only organised part is the cruise.

    might just have to wing it or drive back closer to goldy.

    think there is national park spots close by?

    most likely I will be heading back to Coolangatta.


    Despite what Lorraine said I think it best to give Alan some peace rather than expect him to meet all our needs when he is not well.
    But I do agree with her that things fall into place .
    its kombi time and nimbin.
