    Thumbs up Re: MINI down Under (Melbourne)

    Count me in... I am gathering lights faster than ideas to do with them.
    Now I need some ideas and help.

    wjohn: I can't help with a location (and my house is about the size of half your garage).. but I know the Melb-chapter of "melbourne.wireless.org.au" use to hire a scouthall in Hawthorn. (I think they might have it covered under their subscriptions). Something like that might be an idea.. especially around june'sh.. just an idea..

    This year I'll probably have to pass, which is a pity. 5/6 June is a great time, but just not for a 2000km trip once again, but I'll see what I can do.

    Lol Cheater. I will offer next year to hold a Mini here once I get the shed extension done. I was hoping to get it done last year, but $ and time caused that to be delayed lol

    I'd love a Sydney mini, but would also love a QLD one too. I know theres more Victorians that are active here, but us New South Welshmen are building in numbers too

    IF, and thats a BIG IF I can get the week off from work (I work that weekend) my wife has given permission to go to the mini once again - I'll be going alone, so if anyone wants a lift from NSW, or melbourne airport, I'll see what I can do (VE SV6 sommodore, so not TOO rough of a ride lol).

    Assuming I can go, I'll probably leave Thursday, drive to Albury, spend the night, drive to Melb on Friday. Stay Fri, Sat, Sunday & head back on the Monday - probably all the way back in 1 day.

    Any suggestions of accomodation about $100 a night thats NOT the Formula 1 in Dandenong North would be appreciated lol

    Dave

    Edit: Oh if this happens, & you want a lift - No $ for the lift, you get your own accomodation (We can decide whats the best option together). I drive & pay for fuel (Novated lease), and have lost 0 points, 0 accidents since I gained my licence 25 years ago.

    Have marked in the diary - will ask all the powers that be if I can have some time off. Will crunch some numbers to see if I can afford it! Going to Sydney in 3 weeks to see Top Gear live and that's going to be a bit expensive - mind you the mini will be just swapping cars with lights . . . . either way it's still just a bunch of middle aged blokes prattling on . . . . *duck*. :p



    PS - Dave - I was sooooooooo looking forward to staying in Dandy again!!
    Ugh, this year will be too busy. I'd like to buy a vowel and more time please.

    .
    There are some places in the city that charge by the hour :mrgreen: aparently.... (just in case you are interested)

    I stayed at the Downtowner on Lygon street (awesome for dinner!) for $99pn.. Motel Ringwood (nr. wjohn).. in fact "motel <anything>" will probably be around $99..
    There are plenty of backpackers (Victoria Hall/CBD; StKilda;) that do rooms @ $30-80/night (ah yea... backpackers.. I remember when... sigh )Try wotif.com.au (can't select that far away yet)

    I work in Dandenong so share your sentiments.. I've driven past that place a number of times wondering who would stay there.. a connundrum no longer

    I'd suggest once we establish where.. then the sleep can be dealt with..
    I am happy to lend you my swag or one of my many tents for the night if you have somewhere to pitch it.. (sorry it doesn't come with the blonde-chick-that-can-cook any longer.. I married her
