    sorry it has been a while since last coms but been at work. The heat has been a bother but I find both Sydney and Melbourne worse as I don,t handle humidity well. Still A/C is a godsend.

    I am heading down on the thursday afternoon - I live on the NSW sth coast (Narooma). No route planned, might criss cross the mountains or head straight down the princes Hwy - am open to suggestions if anyone wants to meet somewhere

    Keen to meet anyone for the ride down ( I am heading down with a mate on a Triumph Sprint)

    maybe for those of you coming from Wagga, we might meet somewhere in the Vic mountains ?

    for those of you already in Vic - maybe at the meeting ?

    just keen to catch up with forum members & put a name to a face

    looks like I am leaving on friday morning - heading down the coast road with the odd detour inland (Bonang Hwy, Buchan Caves)

    Haven't booked any accom - will pack a tent just in case I can't find a room in the pub or a hotel - anyone got any hints on places/campgrounds on the island to stay (am guessing it might be busy that weekend)

    Might stay in Wonthaggi if the island is booked out
