    I posted up and EOI on the FB page and there strangely didn't appear to be many leaving Sydney on Friday. Since this is the official place I'm going to leave a note here of what I'm planning. Due to it being Easter I'm going to try and stay away from the whole Katoomba area so as to avoid as much traffic as possible. I think travelling out through Richmond will be the quickest route.

    It's about 2 hours to Lithgow which seem like a good spot to stop for lunch. McDonalds is always easy, but happy to go somewhere else:
    https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/McDonald's/@-33.480994,150.137407,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x8274750fd5dcdf25

    Planning to leave Sydney around 10am and arrive in Lithgow somewhere between 12 and 12:30pm. From there it's only another 1.5 hours to Orange.

    If you think there is a better / faster route let me know.

    Is anyone coming.......??

    How far south is it to combine with ACT/Goulburn crew.
    Would it be too far to travel south.

    Yeah we talked about it Graham, but it's going to add a few hours to the drive.

    I'm in for sure!
    Where will we meet?

    Also, Ditcham + his friend Hendo need a ride. Anyone willing to take one of them, or both?
    I have a seat, so someone can jump in with me.

    I have a spare passenger seat any one is welcome to grab. How about we meet up at McDonalds Marsden Park? Should be a junction point for just about anywhere you are coming from.

    Would have loved to do a "MEGA CRUISE" but sadly it adds 2-3hrs on for the Sydney crew or Newcastle guys

    Or us going up that way.


    Orange oddly works out literally in the middle of the majority of us in nsw for start point.

    It's actually 2.5hrs from me on a back road through Taralga with a little spirited driving.

    Looked at coming across and meeting on fringe of Bathurst but again, that drives an extra 80km odd out of the way to then backtrack towards orange :)

    If we are there early I might try liase getting to town entrance and getting some footage of everyone rolling in like you did ;)

    Who's going from Newcastle?

    I'm at West Gosford and would love to meet with the Newcastle or Central Coast guys heading to Orange.

    We can meet up at the Kariong Exit (but going to Sydney side). There is a nice and straight part of the freeway not long after the Exit where a few Zs can pull over in the emergency lane and wait for a meet.

    I'm planning on leaving Friday say about midday but I'm flexible depending on what time everyone else has organised to leave from Newcastle or CC area.

    If anyone is interested, pls let me know.

    Peter

    If you don't want to go inland you are welcome to join up with us Peter. I believe this is the inland route:

    The inland route from Newcastle will be awesome!!!

    I've been to Orange via the Sydney way and it SUCKS. Start/stop all the time.

    There is a thread started by mholt regarding people from Newcastle.
    I suggest we all post on there so that anyone from the Central Coast and Newcastle area can refer to and we can meet up somewhere near Newcastle and take the inland route.

    I will copy and paste this on there.
