2010 Great Ocean Road Trip. Aka Gor4!

Recommended Posts

I'll put my hand up for that considering I'm probably the furthest away.

 

If there's any suggestions for a meet point, suggest away but somewhere near a major hwy/road. I don't mind if we use tolls but let me know if you don't and I'll work with that.

 

A good meet point might be Todd Rd servo just before the West Gate.

 

Let me know asap.

 

 

LB :wink:

 

Todd Road works for me. Would be a good chance to top up the tank :hmm:

Don't even get me pondering how many tanks I will go through. My only fuel consumption tests have been what and that resulted in just over 200kms from a tank.

OOOOHHHH!! That's gotta hurt but it would be hell fun :hmm:

 

Sweet. Got one person for the meet point. I haven't worked out a time yet but I will post it up before the weekend's over I hope.

I'm sure there will be others from the west side as well? I can't remember where everyone is!

 

Maybe swing by the little river service centre on your way through for another pickup point if needed?

Maybe Stu should come along and compete for the "Fuel Consumption Award".

 

It would be pretty tight competition between Nobbler's Val, Roosa's Rotorolla and Stu's Kerby...... :hmm: :yes:

 

 

LB :wink:

 

 

Stu should come anyway! Gone soft on us and missed the best runs so far!

 

AND Stu would have to be at least 50m further down the road than you... But I guess he doesn't count as being the furthest!

 

Fuel consumption... I have two options. 1: drive with pipes closed, not get a headache, not go broke and not be crazy. 2: drive with pipes open, sniff unburnt fuel all day, ears begin to bleed, eyes water, vision starts to blur... Smile gets big enough for it's own seat, I scare pedestrians and it's [email protected]$kin grouse!

 

I'll take option two! :) :)

Hey guys, bita bad news. I'm way short on cash at the moment so I'm not going to be able to make it this year. Was hoping to have a new job and such but not having any luck. Being single on a trainee wage and living by yourself is a drain on funds. Hope you all have a great run and i'll catch up with you guys this year at some stage.

 

Any chance you will be coming back through ballarat?

I've also decided to bail......from going to Melbourne with the rest of you after the trip.

 

Need to conserve cash so will head back on the Tuesday.

 

Other than that, I'm fitting up a new radiator next week and swapping out the beasty K & N for a stocko filter to see how the fuel consumption goes.
