  1. Hey guys, Post updated to lock in Adelaide accommodation Friday Travelling from our various locations to the Belair Caravan Park where we'll be staying during our 2 nights in Adelaide. I spoke to Tonya this morning and she was more than happy to have us there and says she's able to put us all in cabins close to each other. Rates are very reasonable, facilities seem fantastic and there are plenty of options to choose from (even tent sites if you want to save money) Bookings can be made online, but I'd recommend calling them (08) 8278 3540 and letting them know you're with the group with ANDREW CARRUTHERS so they can fit us all in close proximity to each other. I plan on arriving between 5 and 6pm and will be putting on a BBQ for anyone interested. I'll be bringing enough meat, snags, salad, bread, plates, cutlery etc so feel free to partake - just let me know if you're up for it or not so I can work out how much to bring. Hopefully this will be a great time to introduce ourselves, have some decent chit-chat and relax before we hit the hills the next day. Firepits are available, but only during winter. They're happy to check the fire danger at the time and let us put one on if conditions allow. Saturday Entire day exploring the Adelaide hills, visit the motor museum, Chocolate Factory (afternoon tea), a couple of "Photo Op" (to make sure Evil doesn't boot me) places, a couple of dams, a Brewery (lunch), see some great roads, some other hidden gems Puff has in mind and hopefully get to spend some time with some SA forum members. Dinner Saturday at the best Mexican Restaurant I've found (I try to get to Adelaide every year or so just to get a meal here). If they let me down and the meal isn't up to the usual standards I'll be considering the whole cruise an abject failure. Back to the campsite after dinner to hopefully share some more stories around a firepit before retiring for the night. Sunday Limestone Coast, through Robe, Mt Gambier and spend the night in Warrnambool. Routes, activities and accommodation still to be finalised. I do have a few different routes and stops in mind and will probably discuss it Friday and Saturday night to gauge interest in the various options. Monday Back to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road (I shouldn't need to say any more on that leg ) It will mean a couple of days off work for most people - Fri/Mon for Vics, Mon/Tues for SA if some (hopefully) join us for the GOR leg and probably Thurs, Fri, Mon, Tues if any NSW guys wanted to join in for the full trip and respective days for any others coming from different directions. RULES: 1. Obey all laws whilst on the cruise; this means no speeding, no overtaking over double lines (no matter how safe you think it may be), etc... 2. There is a designated cruise leader who will lead the way and set the correct pace for all cruise members. 3. Use the Buddy system - always make sure you can see the car behind you. This will give people behind you an indication on where to turn to make sure nobody gets lost. 4. CB Radios - if you don't have one, follow the maps and directions given out. It is highly recommended to have CB as it enhances the enjoyment of the cruise being able to hear about road hazards and join in on the social chatter. 5. Please turn up to the meeting points with a sufficient fuel in your tank and enough time before the departure time. 6. Onus is on the owner/driver to ensure their vehicle is safe to drive on public roads and meets State road traffic authority laws. 7. Please ensure you have a contingency plan if you have a breakdown or unnecessarily delayed. e.g. Roadside Assistance or a mate in another car who is willing to stay with you if necessary. 8. This cruise is not to be advertised on any other media or websites or social media sites without prior agreement from the cruise organisers. 9. By attending this cruise you agree not to hold FordXR6Turbo.com, it's Administrators, Moderators, Cruise Controllers, or Owner responsible / liable for any damage and / or grief sustained (simply; you are responsible for your own actions). CRUISE LIST: (The darker the name the more confirmed they are to be coming) 1. Rab VIC 2. EvilDaifu VIC 3. Box stock T. SA 4. Puffwagon SA 5. k31th VIC 6. MBAF Western Front 7. BAXRTUTE NSW 8. MattyP, NSW
  2. Well that sucks :( Make sure you sign up for the Snowies cruise in Nov.
  3. Have you got an aftermarket cold air intake? If not then the tuner may get a little more legroom for a stable, consistent tune.
  4. Sounds good. I'll probably be looking to head straight to the park to get sorted after the long drive, but it sounds like a good idea for those arriving earlier etc.
  5. Probably best to wait til numbers are finalised and pick a spot then. If it's just you, me and Keith driving from Vic ît should be pretty easy to pick a logical roadhouse/servo. If there's others coming from other direction then a different spot may work better. I'd like to ht the campsite between 5 and 6 so will work backwards from there. Probably an 8/8:30am meetup just out of the city. They'll be open for brekkie and coffee Sat morning?
  6. Was going to say..... 50gb wouldn't even hold my music library

  8. Excellent - they happy with snags and stuff on the bbq?

  14. Microsoft Onedrive FTW - seamless integration with all the computers of all my documents/photos/files etc
  15. I like/love the Mexican joint in Magill Road. Just need an excuse every year or so to book in for dinner. This year I'm dragging some forum members along
  16. All good - was just putting the offer out there to save us from having to turn up at your place after the pub shuts
