Grampians Drive 23/24th May '09
Posted 11 March 2009 - 09:14 AM
We are having a run up to the Grampians and staying overnight on the weekend of the 23/24th of May.
This will be your last chance to get the Zed out for a good blast before winter weather sets in!
We are currently looking at accommodation options but a multi share room is looking like the best option
if people are willing to share with each other.
We will also have a suitable option for Couples.
Please email Craig at: Craig.lovegrove (at) rydell.com.au to put your name down.
It should be a top weekend with a great group of like-minded people!
Don't be shy & come along!!!

Costs are $220- with breakfast twin share with mountain views. $180- with out views
$335- for 2 bedroom accommodating 3-4 people.
Or if we have a large group we could look at a house style on the sheep farm 3 minutes from town. Do a BBQ tea etc if we wanted.
Some great roads and plenty of places to look at along the way.
Register your interest on here. :-)

Hey ash you'll have to let me know if your coming roughly a week before the trip because ill stay at a mates The friday and meet you in the morning at your place f thats cool with you?
And btw Sulio, I just ordered a "Very expensive xP" Suction cup mounting thingi to mount on the zed for the trip,
But i would like to upgrade my 6 odd year old camera for the trip Any ideas on one?
- Thanks guys and see you in a couple months - Mick

I would be keen to see that suction cup camera holder your getting. I don't think I'm gonna bring the video camera to this trip as my miniDV is plying up, (too many drops I think) and i want to enjoy the driving. Will bring my digital SLR and just enjoy taking some photos rather than rushing to do too much.
Hey just a side note to everyone, I can't emphasize how much better the drive is when you have a UHF cb radio in the car. Try and get one of the hand held ones off e-bay, go for a 5 watter as less power will annoy you. We are using them for all these drives so it's a great investment and keeps you in the loop whilst driving rather than just follwoing and wondering things like "why are they stopping here?" or "bummer, wish I had known about that speed camera evrybody else got the heads up on!".

I Was recommended it by a mate after buying a half cheap sony one for $35 By a mate who races a drag Torana down calder Monthy odd, And advised me on this camera holder as its the only one he trusts to hold With his $1000 buck Sony handicam
Down the strip at 120 Mph
I went to the shops today and prices some 5 watt Cb radios/Handicams but decided all were Either expensive or not what i was looking for.. So it looks like ebay is the key!
And for the Cb radio i did get one of my Grandpas Old patrol But since Decided to look at buying a new one as i dont like making permanent mounting things or Holes in my zed, Especially on things id take out when there not in use.
* Just ordered a 5 watt Uniden UHF Waterproof Handheld Off Ebay. $245 Delivered! Better then the Cheapest Chinese brand 5 watt cb at Dick smith that was $370! o.o
But yes i plan on being all equipped by this drive, just to try and get the best trip possible i can Being my first and all.
Anyway Thanks heaps Mate, And See ya on the drive
