i know this is early, but who's up for a roadtrip in september for the weekend? i really want to get out to the airshow this year as i've never been to one.

RAAF Williamtown is just north of Newcastle...so i thought would could maybe head up early that day, check out the show, then head back to Newie for a piss up or something? will probably look into accommodation at a pub hotel somewhere, or even find some self contained accommodation so we have a safe place to park our bikes.

anyone interested?

Would be in, but probably not overnight. I'm so fucking pov that the petrol and ticket in would break me.

Can't say now though - depends on assessments at the time.
