No, I'm sharing a room with a guy who has already checked in.
What's his name?

Was it 2017 we were all beaten by the key pickup safety box out the front of the hotel?

 

We were doing it wrong?

Just did some checking and can't find any in Tumut or Jindabyne. A bootful of jerry cans might be the only way.

 

Edit: hadn't refreshed and seen Keith's post. Haha yep you'd almost need a support car with a trailer full of jerry cans!

closest E85 is Wagga Wagga. (to Tumut)

approx 1hr15m drive.

figure out how much that'd deplete your tank... then add however much to get to about 1.5-2ish full tanks of E85 that you'd probably need to do the driving we do on the 2nd main day of the trip to get to Jindy through the snowy mountains.

 

then plus enough to get you to Wodonga West to refuel up from Jindy...

then to do day 4 you'd probably need 2 more tanks of E85.

I'm thinking 6 would get me back to Canberra with a bit of 😬

That's not such a bad idea!

Lol better off running a 98 tune as you’d have more chance of finding a pot of gold. Nothing out that way

I would but I don't have a 98 tune at the moment... 🤫 :)

Yeah day 4 is unrealistic for me, unfortunately.  It looks like a nice drive.

Ah you are coming from Canberra - there are two of us coming from there. Happy to throw a couple of jerry cans in my car if you run out of space. We tend to meet at Gold Creek on the Friday arvo to drive to Tumut.

I had been hoping to do 4 days this year, but starting a new job with an overseas trip already booked means I'm in negative leave territory big time! Hopefully I'll come at least part way on the sunday then head home.

did you get paid out for your leave owing from the previous job? pay your current job for the equivalent of whatever leave you're taking if going into negative by 1 more day is really an issue.

Also need to take compulsory leave at Christmas, plus more when my wife goes back to teaching before the kids start term 1 - so I think I'm pushing my luck enough as it is!
