Happy New Year Everyone.
Owe you all an update on the Tassie Tour
John & Grace :
Jurgen(with his "Camel")
Paul (I hope-haven't heard direct)
i.e. 6 people 5 vehicles. Sorry to hear that its out for a number of others but this still allows a bit of room for late participants if circumstances change. Also is a T5 acceptable ?
I think it would be correct to say all the participants are retired and not tightly bound by dates?
The original dates suggested Depart Mon 18 Feb return Sun 10 March are still available on the Spirit of Tasmania EXCEPT for pensioner concessions.
There is still good availability Feb 18 -March 8 with some availability outside this mid week.
A company that I only know from its listing on the web. "Travel with a cause" claims to offer lower rates than booking with the Spirit direct plus it donates all its profits to 3rd world charities. It appeals to me unless it is a scam. Anyone know anything of it?
Whilst it would be good to all travel together was however thinking that it would be best if we all book our own actual sailings to suit to allow people to get over earlier or return later if required but with a given starting date and time in Devonport e.g.. 9am Tues 19 Feb start off together and return to Devonport in time for the Sun 10 March 7.30pm sailing.
I think I should rejig the itinerary to bring us to Hobart for a Saturday "Salamanca Market" and slow the pace down - Do others agree? I'd expect that we could be flexible enough to vary things by general consensus as we go along but basically stick to an agreed plan.
I'll send this off now, lets have some feedback and look to confirm ferry bookings by this time next week.
Looks a good group to me.
