Furry Road Trip To Melbourne! Interest?

Postby KibaSwiftpaw » Sat Jun 06, 2009 12:39 am

Just a heads up to get some general interest into who might want to road trip it down for Midfur later this year instead of flying.

The Den is currently working out some numbers and figures and harassing the local rental companys to see what we can come up with. At the moment, (this is like a 5 min search) we found a good little van which would cost us roughly $150-$200 per person there and back.
But remember, this is just a rough search now, with a bit of time and knowing who is coming and numbers we will be able to give a clearer idea of price.

Also those who express interest in coming down, can also state if they would like to share hotel accomidation as well. This is also being looked into to help lower cost of going down. At the moment, we are looking into the slightly higher class backbackers hotels :P and we shall post costs of them up as well when we have a better idea of numbers

Those who are coming down, if you can state whether or not you can drive a manual this would also be handy! The more drivers the quicker we can get down there!

Anyway, give us a heads up if you are interested coming down or not and we can see what we can do to get good pricings! ^.^

Husky mentioned wanting to drive down if he ends up going. If we do we'll probably be staying at my brother's place.

And yes, I can drive a manual, just not legally. xP

Considering it will cost about $300 to fly down this is relative to my interests.

I have a manual license though I haven't driven in one so long that it probably isn't worth stating :p

That aside if this can get the whole trip cost down to about $600-$700ish then consider me interested (that is travel, accommodation and the attendance fee for the con)

I'd certainly be interested for something like this.
I have no license, no no driving from me.
But yeah, if this will make the trip cheaper, then I'm all for it!

If you're willing to pick up a couple of furs from Sydney, my Brofur and I might be interested, and Shinji, too, actually.

So thats three potentials, but uh, none of us can drive manual (Shinji only has NZ lisence, and I don't have one at all, Bro is only on Ls)

Bro and I are planning to stay at the Rydges, but we're getting either a double or triple room, plus some cots for the floor (more people = less rates, and its pretty easy to fold up lilo's during the day etc)

I'm certainly interested.

I can drive a manual... I just need someone with a full license (and a deathwish) sitting next to me.
