Forum trip to the Cape

Post by Daddybang » 14 Feb 2018, 7:43 am

So in the lifes good thread a couple of people indicated they'd be interested in coming up here for meet and greet. I figured if people are going to put in the effort to get here then we'd be mad not to go all the way to the tip so I've started this thread to get expression of interest. I'd be looking at June next year(2019). :drinks:

I'd need notice to lock in time off and all the usual, but in principle I'm keen.

I've done from Melbourne to the Daintree before but didn't get to the cape, too deep into the wet season for it at the time :|

Keen for updates on this :thumbsup:

So some rough dates
Meet at my place on the 24th and 25th of may leave on the 26thand get back around the 9th of June
The reason for those dates
May is the end of the wet so weather should be good with plenty of water in the rivers etc.
From the end of Jun til around Sept/Oct it gets bloody busy up here . finding good campsites can be difficult.
Gives everyone a chance to organize work family etc.
Let me know if I'm on the right track!! :thumbsup: :drinks:

Yes, watching. Not 2019 for me but 2020 would be a very good chance.
