    Thought it a good idea to start a thread where us Mexicans can chat about a convoy to SA for a week of socialising at Cape Jaffa.
    Still need to confirm our plans but at this stage travelling to SA on Wednesday 7th. and home on the Monday or Tuesday.
    We are taking the D4 for same sand driving driver training with all the electronic wizardry and towing the camper as a test run before our big trip.
    when are others traveling ?

    Dutchy, have you confirmed what days you are travelling yet? noticed you had booked a site:)

    I am a morning person so happy to leave nice and early to beat the traffic out of Melbourne. For work I try to hit the Monash car park by 6.00am at the very latest either that or leave it till after 9.30. Its 600km for us and 7 hours without stops.

    What are every ones thoughts?

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should, besides I am travelling in convoy with a Pootrol, Paj and Toymota, no point in just leaving them in a trail of dust and diesel fumes only for them to catch up with a D4 in limp mode crawling down the hwy.:rolleyes:

    Na, don't know yet. I think it'll just be myself. I'm currently in the negative in my annual leave days, I might try and take the RDO before instead of after the weekend. Just comes down to work in the end.

    Matt, we wont be doing the 'early start' but dont change your plans to suit us. We have allowed 8 hrs for the drive, so leave 9ish and arrive around 5 pm.

    I am not going to the get together, but I am traveling along the Limestone coast on that weekend on my way home form my remote WA trip. Never know I might see you on the road. Just look for a D4 towing a New Age Manta Ray off road caravan.

    Getting closer now!!
    Just to confirm we are going to leave early to beat the crap Melbourne peak hour and lessen the potential major delays that freeway traffic can cause.
    Will be leaving home by 6.00 am at the latest so will arrive at Cape Jaffa in time to set up and enjoy a relaxed afternoon. If anyone wants to travel with us we can meet at our place or along the way, far side of the city for breakfast might work.
    Will be heading home Monday mid to late morning.
