Sorry All

I am coming from the Eastern Suburbs, hence, I use Harbour Tunnel then keep on the motorway until I get to Windsor turn-off. Perhaps we could meet at Windsor at 9am?

I am open to suggestions.

But that leaves me only 15 minutes to play in the playground.

So are we doing the Putty Road all the way to The Hunter Valley or Singleton??

I am happy anywhere, any distance.

Though, let's choose a place that allows all of us to attend.

You forgot Gucci, so it's looking like 7 something now! Which is damn impressive.
I don't particularly care where i have to meet everyone, just as long as i get an address which i can put it in my nav system and come find everyone. Preferably not more than an hour from the city

Long way from 13 seconds to 10, but it'll be a blast if you were to have a serious go at it.

Good luck out at WSID when you go, don't break anything!

yes, planning on the 2nd June (Next month)... i still am unsure about going to the hunter though, i mean, really, we can't do much there... we can't go wine tasting, cos we all have to drive, and meals there are $$$$$$$...

but if everyone still want's to go there, then next cruise we can go somewhere else

has anyone else got sugestions on where we could og that are more driver/cruise/money friendly?

I personally enjoy the drive up the F3 past gosford to some of the more secluded beaches up there, absolutely goregoes as well as top photo ops.
The drive to Palm Beach is also nice...

ok, new idea people..

because no one seems over enthusiastic about going to teh hunter, and hasn't posted any sugestions or help, then i am sugesting we take a trip over to bathurst, which is something i am sure we can all enjoy

from rouse hill, the drive will take 2 hours, and will take us up the bells line of road, up through Bell and Lithgow

is anyone else open to this?

what: Sydney's first e90post cruise!
when: 2nd June, 9 am for a 9:20 departure
where: Rouse Hill maccas, for a drive over to Bathurst
what to bring: enough petrol, some money for food, and a sensible attitude
