ROTOVEGAS ROUND II. The last trip was a roaring success and good times shared by all. I know quie a few people missed out due to exams and assignments, so this one is for you!

As with last time, the route will be strictly coastal from Auckland out to Clevedon, Kaiaua, Miranda, Whangamata, Waihi, Tauranga, Whakatane and then over to Rotovegas. The route home is flexible.

I think the mileage last time was about 400-500km down there and a bit less coming home. For accommodation we stayed in log cabins which were about $15-20 pp/pn. The accommodation also had its own hot pools which was great!

I personally, do not see the need for this ride to involve more than one night away i.e. two days of riding, and am going to suggest we leave on Friday and come back on Saturday. However, if a Friday departure does not suit people we can cruise down on the Sat and come back Sun.

IF YOU ARE KEEN YOU NEED TO DO TWO THINGS:

1. CONFIRM WHICH DEPARTURE DAY SUITS YOU BEST (Friday 7th or Saturday 8th)
2. PAY ME A NON-REFUNDABLE ACCOMMODATION FEE OF $20 CASH

haha the bit I heard about was the steamy windows in the boys' cabin??

(They were adamant it was only becuase the weather was REALLY F**CKING COLD outside... ^^)

why the 8th?!

i'm going to have to do some serious reorganisation to make it to this one, we'll have to leave friday and i'll need to find some money too

you think 7 days warning is a bit harsh?

Then the week after next (15 December) which would be more suitable for me too. What say you Macstar?

Yep! that time suits me too

Hmmm...

The late notice (9 days) was because EJ reminded me of my earlier promise to take this trip again and after checking my diary that was the only free weekend for me in 2007.

If the majority of people are free the weekend of the 15th go for it and we'll have to get Kim to lead the ride as he knows the score now.

I'm democratic - leave it to you guys to vote on!

yeah that would be a good idea, i thought i had enough money to got this weekend, but just remembered i've got that $200 speeding ticket to pay, and foo fighter tickets go on sale friday... wonder if i can swap my speeding ticket for a concert ticket? actually, considering the value of the ticket i should be able to get two foo fighter tickets:banana:

Bloody typical uni students eh? Can't organise a piss up in a brewery! (jokes). It looks like my class trip up north has been cancelled this weekend so if the other half agrees I'm going to go and do this ride or something similar to my holiday home in the Coromandel instead.

Again, if you think you can escape this weekend express your interest here and I'll PM you some details when they become available.

Ah feck, did you manage to score the tickets?

Shit... I didn't know they were gonna be this popular. I was actually gonna buy a few and then sell them on Trade Me but didn't have the chance by the looks of it.

It's looking like I am gonna have to make it to the second show.
