It's all coming together now - we are booked to go to Tassie on 6/01 and return 15/01, so those dates (inclusive) are out. I turn 40 on the 5th, so no driving anywhere for me that day (gotta drown those sorrows ....).

It now looks like it has to be the 1st or 2nd (assuming the weekend) if I'm going to be involved.

The location doesn't bother me much at all - Victoria is so small, I'd could go anywhere within it to spend time with my fellow Aussie APUGgers!
