I'm in again ... Hammer Time, eh Chester :cheers:

Anyway, someone has to be there to dilute the gene pool and to tempt Patrollers over to the dark side.

Have to confer with SWMBO before I cast my vote for when and where.

I agree, Easter is going to be hell (just about anywhere), especially since it coincides with Anzac Day making it a longer break than usual.

Cheers

Easter - no good for us due family commitments.

If it's mid winter, I might have a hard time getting the wife and kids out, but I'll be in. I got in the crap last time I took the family camping and it snowed on us... I thought it was important to adequately test out the new tent... 3-4 yrs on and I got reminded about it again when we were camping just last week... ohh, the memories! :twisted:

Perhaps this should have been two polls - one for time and one for location???

I just got back from the vic high country - started at myrtleford and ended up going thru Melbourne to Ballarat doing all the tracks up high until the toyotas broke and we had to go go home.

You Victorians have some very special countryside over there.. Dargo was very very busy on new years eve. Have fun!

That's the Queens Birthday weekend, everything closes after that. Mind you, it'll be pretty cold around there that time of year, so likely to be fairly quiet.

Also, any proposed sites, if that ends up being the place? Since SWMBO would be in Bali, I'd need a place that is deefa friendly.

Cheers

so at this stage we are looking at the high country over easter.............ok this is what we are going to do

List 10 places (either east or west high country) that you would like to go to over the easter break

once a general consensus is reached i'll put up another poll to decide on the final location.

i'll say now that because we in Vic are awesome, we're going to hold 2 over the course of the year
