I guess the location will dictate the dates. The move to easter was due to the high county being closed in sept when we went to Mansfield.

Surely there are some Swaggers out there who are keen to show off their local area to the rest of us?

Just putting it out there to all the Tasmania members, who would be interested in meeting up for a few hours to discuss :cheers: this at a central location in the state?

I am happy to put a couple of dates forward if there is interest. It would have to be before the end of July as I think  ??? that is the cut off for nominations.

Tassie is awesome... Been waiting to go back since 97. :(

Even better if a deal could be worked out to get the cars/trailers across cheap... I think the $1500-2300 will put many off.

From memory from when I looked, as soon as you add dimensions over what a normal car is the price grows astronomically, I think for interest's sake I looked and it was actually quite a bit cheaper to take two cars with a similar total length than it was to tow anything. 

Edit, just had a look at some random dates and it looks like for us and our camper it would normally be about $1.8K for a daytime trip return and about $2.5K for the night time trip with bunks. Christmas time would be over $3K for the night time run.
