OK, dates are settled, like I mentioned earlier, we'll keep this new thread for facts, eg: what is set in concrete, hopefully that way we wont have to sieve through pages of discussion to work out what is happening.

Please keep all discussion, ideas etc to the original topic so we can keep this clean

Dec 7th/8th - Ferry to Tas

Dec 8th - 16th, Tour of Tassie  (details to be finalised)

Doubt I'll make it after MotoGP at Sepang international Raceway and then a few days in Singapore at this stage . But if I do I might have to send my bike over and get a flight I reckon.

No one opposed the idea when I mentioned it in the original thread, and you were the 1st to reply.

I had to search back 2 pages and 59 posts to find that post now, this was exactly what I was trying to avoid

.

My New Years Resolution for 2018 is to try and make this National Meet happen, so here goes..............


I've been informed by my daughter I MUST be in Adelaide December 1 for her dance concert, a Dad's got to do what a Dad's got to do.

That would mean the earliest I can get away from here is a shorter part day stint Sunday 2nd and a full day to Melbourne Monday 3rd or I could just do a full 800 km plus Monday.

How would the evening of Tuesday 4th or  Wednesday 5th work for others as a boarding day? Or would later be better? I guess the latest departure date is dependant on how much time we need to be back home with family for Xmas


Questions for barry_mcki and Gus, or others that have already done Tasmania

- After a night on the boat, how far are we going to want to travel on the 1st day? Do we make it a rest day, a short day or just go?

- How much time do we need on the Apple Isle to do a full circuit, relaxed enough to make it really enjoyable?

- What are the "Must See" places?

Bookings have now opened for December 2018

Mon 3rd to Fri 7th are all 7:30 pm departures, Sat 8th has 2, a 9:00 am and a 9:00 pm

https://www.spiritoftasmania.com.au/sailing-fares/sailing-schedule

I think once (if) we set a date in concrete we'll start another topic for the set in concrete information and keep using this for discussion, it'll be a lot easier to find info later then.

The remainder of the accommodation is sorted in Tassie

Decemeber 13 & 14

A Airbnb cottage in West Launceston, a 10 min walk from the Launceston CBD

December 15

Hillsview, the BarryMc Resort


If anyone decides to make a late decision and join us, 

Saturday 8th, Bischoff Hotel Waratah still had heaps of rooms when I booked a couple of weeks ago

Sunday 9th, Empire Hotel Queenstown also had rooms when I booked the same day


Monday 10 - Wednesday12 Rosetta (Hobart) the house has a sofa bed in the lounge room someone else could use (I'd have to confirm extra cos with owner) or you could source your own accommodation, there is plenty and Airbnb is pretty cheap

Thursday 13 Friday 14 our cottage is fully taken but there is a pub down the end of our street with rooms above, the pub also has a apartment across the road that it rents out and is vacant atm

If there is no more takers Barry and I will still have a great time

I really wanted to go to Tas.
Not more than two weeks after you suggested this ride, my good mate asked if I wanted to do the GP. He's never ridden down to the GP from QLD, so it was one or the other..
GP won out.
Hope you have a good time.

Ohh yeah....I realize the closeness.
Just got back today.  Could almost see it from Phillip.
When time and money is talking, it had to be one or the other. 
I'll get there one day.
