 ya reckon just tell 'em where  we're from, should do the trick ;D. I'm hoping to be heading out of town by 8:30 ,9:00 am at the latest. Thanks in advance for the effort you have put in to get this trip under way. I know what it's like, being involved with our local 4wd club , trips don't happen on their own, someone has to put up a hand & say "I will". Top job mate, :cup: :cheers: Bevan

ditto  :cheers:

I'll take the day off work to get organised and get there by at least lunch time.
It does get busy there in the warmer weather though.
The big area in the middle would be the go for all of us.

Laith you wouldn't have some road closed signs you could drop off at the entrance could you.  May free up a bit more space for the rest of the gang.

With the numbers we will have we are going to need to do something Gunna Do.

I was thinking of some police tape and a white body outline at the entry point. Actually that will prob draw more attention.

LOL Bullfrog,

Seriously, I do have a mate who has a set of bagpipes... perhaps we could all "Practice" on them... that would clear the park as they sound like someone squeezing a cat at the best of times!!!

BJ, I not a Graftonite!!! Please don't tar me with that brush...

P.S. Bags NOT being near Bullfrog... I know how loud he snores - then again that might clear the area!!!!

 G'day Barnray
 The more the merrier :cheers: I was going to give this thread a bit of a stir up as nothing had been posted for a bit. I've been doing a "Ketsi", counting sleeps that is. This is looking like a cracker of a weekend, hope the weather is kind :cheers: Bevan

 >:( Buggar, looks like our arrival time just had a set back.  No. 1 daughter goes on a Canberra excursion that week and will not get back until sometime Friday afternoon, but I am determined to get there Friday sometime, so hopefully will be able to pick her up from school and head straight up.  (ETA :- 8.00 pm - 9.00 pm Friday)

Looks like the job of getting the camp fire started on this gathering will have to fall on someone else.  With the amount of Myswaggers showing interest in this gathering, hope someone saves us a spot.

Thats gonna be the hard part...saving a spot.. just hope its not a busy weekend...

May have to do a bit of strategic parking to take up lots of room ??

Maybe someone could make up a rough sign for the entrance to Kylies....".Mid north coast 4wd club christmas party..40 4wd's attending "....??????

I said I'd get onto NPWS and I haven't, but I will.

I'll give it shot tomorrow, but once again I'm not hopeful. We're tax payers, why would they help us?

Bullfrog is now the designated "Keeper of the Fire".

Sorry mate but now the drawers etc are in the back of the Courier, you won't be able to jam the 2t of wood in there like last year!!!

Gday all
I havnt been on here for a long time, since our holidays really which i havnt made a thread for yet, i must get to that sometime soon. ???
As it is looking, this is going to be massive. :cheers:
Problem is with my wife doing Tafe at Macksville on the Saturday, we wont get down there untill late that arvo/night. And chances are we wont get a spot if this is the case.  >:( We will see what we can organise getting closer to the date, as this sounds like it is going to be a cracker of a weekend.

TRUPM, feel free to PM me your contact details. If there is any risk of you no fitting in I'll get in contact.

Make sure you pack your wifes favourite drink, that way whenever you arrive you can give her a drink, the crowd will welcome her and you can setup where ever is available. If she's happy, everything will be OK;.

Thanks for the offer, but undo two clip and a latch, flip it over, and we're set up.  That'll do for the first night anyway.  Go the Camp-o-matic!!!!

Darren, looks like we could be travelling with (or not far behind) you then by the sounds of it.
