    Simon:

    Can you tell us which part of the camping ground we will be having the meet? Will it be far from the entrance?

    Just to make sure we're all meeting at the right place, we're meeting at Wenhams Camp, 14-520 Wangandary Rd, Wangandary VIC 3678??

    I'll post a map later tonight to show exactly how to get there. Right now there's signs up saying Wenhams Camp is closed, but I drove out there and all is well, they just haven't taken the signs down yet.

    A quick map:



    The long and the short of it: Head out of town towards Yarrawonga. You'll go past the High School, and cross a bridge. After the bridge, turn left at the intersection. Follow that road. Zig a few times, Zag a few times and the road will start to climb the hill. You'll get to a particularly sharp right-hander, marked recommended 50Kph - that's the sharp "V" you can see on the map at the top left. The next left after that it Gerret Road. It's marked as such, there's also a sign on that post that says "WENHAMS". From here on in it's dirt road. Follow Gerret road until you get to a cross roads (a fairly big intersection), and turn left. Follow this road until you get to Wenhams Camp. There's a great big sign, you can't miss it. You'll turn left off the road, down a short hill, around to the left a bit, and then you should see me with the BBQ

    Easy, no?

    Are the roads sealed or gravel/mud tracks?

    Re-read the instructions

    Bitumen until Gerret road, then dirt. I drove it at 2200hrs in my Elantra the other night. Easy as pie.

    Oh, and for the sake of my life, and my continued presence on these forums, my wife is under no circumstances to learn what my collection cost!

    I'm very, very serious!

    No worries, I'll bring my T-10 tool steel SBG katana in case we get overrun by zombies! Just like what happened to Hershel's farm in The Walking Dead...

    In Benalla now, feeding the kiddos and settling in. Will leave the house about 5pm and get to the site about 6pm.

    Are there any picnic tables and benches to sit?

    One of the best meets yet, the lamb was the best accompanied by Gav and Vivian's "Geek" salad and Stew and Vivian's potato salad, Chris's Little pizza rolls straight for the camp oven were fantastic little after dinner snacks. Not too sure who made the cakes on a stick but I'm glad they did.

    Sounds like it was more about the food than torches but all of the above make a meet so more enjoyable, really glad to meet up with you folks once again, definitely looking forward to the next one.

    Was good fun--bit rushed to get there but well worthwhile.
    Did 30 kms on the bikes out to Milawa and back and now back home.
    Thanks everyone--a good weekend.
