2017 Muster Planning

Guys,

Just letting you know, we're (wife and I) are seriously planning a (up to) 2 month tour of the Eastern States in the last quarter of next year.

I've been given the green light for extended leave when ever I want. My wife has considerable leave accrual owing to her, so we're going to take the opportunity to have a break, before we make the final push (of our working life) towards retirement.

I'm a stickler for planning etc, so just want to let you know, if you're planning a Muster around September/October 2017, count us in (and probably a ring-in - my mate and his wife with their LC200 + Caravan).

A friend of mine used to make these road trip / vacations with his teenage daughter. They would plot a course and put it up on the New Beetle page and invite people to come drive a leg of the trip with him. He had a starting and stopping place for each day that he posted on a website and people would meet up with him in the morning, drive a half or full day on the route, then they'd have a get-together at the end at some interesting place. Then at some cities he'd spend a day or two and the locals would show him around.


You could do something like that and we'd all sign up to drive a leg!

Steve,

Thanks for kicking the 2017 page off. Look forward to having you at the next. Sept. Oct period seems to work for most. If you have any location/s you would like to suggest please do so.

I would like to promote somewhere "central" where it works for everybody, or at least is not totally prohibitive distance wise.

Kind Regards

Stu..

Initial plans (for us) are to meet our friends at (probably) Mildura. They live in Winchelsea.

I'm keen to put some time in at Canberra - War Memorial etc. Apart from that....it's a clean slate.

I'm riding to Jindabyne and Kangaroo Valley in March next year....returning via Sale, Murray Bridge, Ceduna, Norseman then home (a 4 night stop return trip home...piece o' piss). Looking fwd to riding the Snowy's.....except...Alpine Way is closed between Khancoban and Tom Groggin - road has been washed away during recent rain in the past week or so. That's upset the planning a tad.

Morning all. As a first timer at the muster, I had a ball. My mate, Bob with the Volksero / Mitsiwagen etc enjoyed it as well and now views Tregs as a viable tow car. Doesn't take much to convince people. I know there was some suggestion of trying to move further west to make it a bit easier for our members in South Oz. Perhaps we could look at a location in the Murray Valley or Barossa Valley. Time of year is not an issue for me, can even be a bit later than the October Long Weekend. We could even have a 'Denni Treg Muster' after the ute muster.

I know a bit about the Barossa area, would be great plenty to see and do, other than wine tasting. At Birdwood is the National Car Museum and boy can you get lost in there for a few hours. Can take day trip to Mannum and cruise the Murray River on a paddle steamer. Depends what type of site you want "free camping" or "Caravan Park" Mallala showgrounds great, about $5/night, hot showers and toilets. Also plenty of caravan parks in and around Tanunda. Anyhow food for thought.
Regards Rod.

2017 Muster Planning

Just chucking another idea out there.
VW Touareg Mountain Park
http://www.landcruisermountainpark.com.au
Just west of the Sunshine Coast in QLD. Green grass, clean toilets, hot showers and a heap of 'graded' (as in easy tracks for Toyota's up to black level tracks for Tregs) 4wd tracks including creek crossings.
It's not particularly cheap and definitely not during school holidays. Just a thought.

Ohhhh and another thing. We have found so far that the official 'Treg Musters' we have been involved in [] have just been part of the trip. Sometimes the highlight is actually the bit before or after.
