I have been through this way previously in my 56 Buick towing a light van(automatic, drum brakes) and had no difficulty. Autumn is a spectacular time of year in the high country as the leaves change colour and drop.
Please let me know if you are up to the challenge.
Please find attached itinerary for the High Country Tour to the Nationals.
Note that all caravan parks are pooch friendly so you just need to sort out a kennel in Wangaratta.
Judy and I have stayed at all these parks over the years and I believe that you will be happy with them. The Colac Colac park is a bit out of town (Corryong) but on the river as is the park at Tawonga which has a good pub within walking distance. The walkers can spend some time to walk to the top of Mt Kosciuszko and take a photo to show me upon return Other options are trips up the mountain on the ski tube or on ski lifts some of which operate in summer.
We have a nice manageable group of 10 vans currently coming on the High Country Tour to the Nationals. Another couple of vans would be welcome but you had better stop thinking about it and make your bookings if you are coming along. I am looking forward to a few nights in the mountains where the air is clean, the scenery is awesome and the stars are big.
Count me in for the High Country Tour. Previous to our discussion with you and Judy, will it still be ok for me to park my van out the front of your place the night before we leave, as I will just stay with my son around the corner in Gilmore, for the night. I'll just hitch up in the morning again.
Koala/Ken, Just Reading in the latest Time to 'Roam' Magazine about your fall from grace in the scone -making arena at Shellharbour. I am sure all the participants in the High Country tour will put their waistlines on the line so you can again perfect your skill ready for next year. . I will contact the caravan parks to access the size of their camp ovens. I'm sure contributions of jam and cream will be flowing, cheers Murray
Murray, there is a back story to that. I was one of the Judges and Ken's scones were certainly in the hunt for the top gong. He even brought me a bourbon, so he got bonus points for bribery. However. When I found out that he bribed me with my own bourbon he lost points for that. Lol Mike
