If you could let me know when you are leaving Wilberforce and ETA at Singleton would be good I probably need an hour and half or so to get from here  to Singleton

Windsor to Singleton along the putty is a bit over 2 hours in a regular vehicle sticking pretty much to the speed limits if that helps with the calculations.

Ok gang.

Got off the phone with Terry and the Nowra/Melbourne group are aiming to depart at about 0800 and hopefully meet up with Ainsley and I at Windsor about 1100.

Smokey someone will message you when we are leaving Windsor which is about 3 hours to Singleton I reckon.

My final preparations are all but done- moke and trailer just need a wipe over later today and I need to finish packing.

My number is 0405133944 if anyone needs to contact me.

Thanks
Samm

P.s thanks Tony
I got the covers but they only had grey- if they don't suit your tastes ill keep them anyways.

Hi guys - Cabby here - hijacked Moe & Dynkies iPad!

The guys might talk but let's face it - the girls make the plans!
Samm - plans look good - just want to adjust the meeting point in Windsor to the macca's.
This suits the kids for a stretch.
From there we are happy to go with the flow. Don't need long stops. But want to keep moving!
By the way - due to time restrictions - the only people we are going to wait for is US!!! ????????????

No, I think the meeting point is just fine Cabby.
It was only ever a location with room to easily meet up and refuel so I can then navigate us through Windsor to somewhere to have a stretch and feed and then onto Putty Road.

But if you wish to make the plans then ill meet at the Maccas I don't really care.

Let me know either way.

MokeMyDay has setup at Forbes for the night and a lazy day tomorrow to Dubbo. Still plan to be there late Wednesday.
Meet Julie & Vern earlier this afternoon, there were looking to be further north than us today so that they would be in Tamworth Tuesday night ready for Wednesday's run.
Stay safe and enjoy the moking experience.

Hi,

If Newie is right and Windsor to Singleton is two hours then we should be there between 1pm and 2pm.

Hi,

We made it to Tamworth last night, around 7pm, without any major incident of breakdown etc., so not a bade effort for 620km and 7 Mokes. Only issue I can think of was the rear bar on Dynky is cracking under the weight of the trailer so I towed it the last 100km or so to avoid it breaking off.

The drive along Putty Rd was good, a bit better than I expected really, and with more time it would have been good to stop and look at a few things.
