Meet-ups and cruise to the Easter Van-in 2012...

Post  VanGoes on Sat 04 Feb 2012, 4:38 pm

Thought we could post some details here to avoid hijacking the main thread.
http://majesticvanners.forumotion.com/t2020p75-albury-eastern-states-van-in-easter-2012-open-invite-to-all

Times to meet... at which locations... etc.

One question I had... Other than trucks, does anyone still use CB's? Would it be worthwhile me getting one? Is there a ' Majestics ' channel?

I'm at WoyWoy, central coast and will be leaving Friday. Time???
Could meet at Kariong servo any from Gosford area before hitting the Express way. (I've only been through Albury once... so I would be happy to follow anyone who knows how to get there.)

If we leave early enough... we probably could take a scenic root, photo ops' for the vans along the way and fewer tolls.

Cheers,
Jason (VanGoes)

my mate owns tyrepower campbelltown (old vanner too)
could make that final meeting place out of sydney to do final checks before the highway

he has a HQ racer so the mechanics know older cars pretty well

you could go into Dick Smith or a shop alike and buy yourselves hand held UHF radios. no truckies use C.Bs any more. good enough range for what you want them for. recharge them with your lighter plug.

I just use a UHF hand held radio it has a range of 5Ks,also at this point it is a 50/50 chance that I may be going to the easter van in I won't be able to give a definant answer at this point as circumstances have changed.

I'll try and post a map soon, that shows the route and meet spots and estimated time at each spot.

If anyone knows of any good spots to stop for photo ops with mountains or ocean backdrops, etc... please post a suggestion and we'll see what time we have spare.

Crying or Very sad wish I was gonna be more than a camera man... I want my Van finished. LOL

We need a definant answer on who is going and what time to meet up and where,as I suggested before Suttons Forest to me would be the logical place.the thing is it is on the hume and has the twin servos and Maccas,also as I also pointed out we can meetup with others on the way and make a cruise of it Very Happy

vic cruise

Post  serendipity on Fri 09 Mar 2012, 9:28 pm

ok, i am going to put forward an idea for the vic cruise up to albury...
woo53 leigh is further est away so i am thinking the first meet point could be the bp at westernport hwy and thomsons rd cranbourne then maybe the bp at wallan after that followed by the bp at glenrowan. times will depend on what time we all want to be there. this is only a rough draft, any other ideas would be welcomed cheers andrew

Here is a link for the victorian guys:

http://maps.google.com.au/maps?saddr=philip+island,+vic&daddr=Albury,+New+South+Wales&hl=en&ll=-37.09024,146.953125&spn=2.909397,7.020264&sll=-25.335448,135.745076&sspn=26.195503,56.162109&geocode=FfQctP0drgmmCCFeBQiP4gVppQ%3BFXZz2f0ddcTBCCmnPvNpfF8hazEAJ0SQtAkGBQ&oq=Albury&t=h&mra=ls&z=7

Starting from philip island as I figure leigh is coming from the furthest in the south east, guys in the south west should be able to join us on the hume at some stage.

Picked up these today at Repco:



Cost $29 - save $50!

Would be good for those travelling in convoy, we got them for communicating between the van and the car, they only have a 3 kms range but that suits us! Cool

For sure Tony, that is half the reason I bought it! Very Happy

Always wanted a CB for the van, but these were so cheap it was hard to pass up. I used a similar pair on a hunting trip I went on and they worked really well.
