Well yeh thinking that... I'd prob go stay somewhere up in canberra, find someone up there from j/c that might put me up night or two...

Then off to NSW where i visit BENJI, Then maybe meet up with few other people there.

Then continue up to QLD, Say a big hello to garth, see another friend of mine up there... And maybe organise another quick car meet/get together lol... Go across to the NT maybe i dunno.....

I rekon i can get 1000km+ on full tank of gas & petrol(I would drive on gas most of the time an use petrol as reserve because you can always take a jerry can of petrol an u cant of gas).... I'd prob take up 2 spare wheels... All tools I needed.... Stuff like that. Some oil, coolant, Oil filter... I'm actually hunting for a VN car bra at the moment... And some HID spotties i can mount in my front bar... I'd take my Car jump park which is chargable via 12v cig, so it'd be fully charged an if i needed it i could use it.

I would take my laptop... I would take gps... And get australian maps on laptop... Sit it on passenger seat... Perfect...


Thinking about making a decent trip out of this...

Cheers

Having seen the Eastern seaboard from Townsville to Melbourne I can tell you that you cannot comprehend how much there is out there. If you get up north I've heard that a pub called the woolshed in cairns is worth a look. I would recommend checking out Arlie Beach, Sunshine coast, Gold Coast Brsibane, Coffs Harbour at least.
