Lightbulb Meet and Cruise EOI

'Sup, SA dudes (well, xeon8 and Zenki ). We've been jabbering about it in other threads for a couple weeks, so I figured it was actually time to sort this out. Would be cool to do something before the 'silly season' sets in and everyone is uber busy.

What days/times are people generally free? I'm good for most mornings and early afternoons till I work at 5pm, with Saturdays usually being totally available.

Once we know when, then we can decide what we want to do. I know the beach was suggested. If anyone is feeling adventurous, the way up through the hills to Lobethal is a riot. Keen for any other routes/photoshoot locations too.

Peace out,

Billy-Jack

Good to see another Adelaide member lurking about! I have no idea when cop-active periods are, haha. You might have to enlighten me on that one. Maybe we could do a beach day and photoshoot, and if people are keen, a run through the hills at night when there's less traffic, as it's a b*tch trying to overtake during the day.

I'll have to see when I'm free. Work is quite hectic at the moment, I've been working every day from 9-m. I do have a few Saturdays off though so I'd be down then.

As for ideas, a hills cruise sounds cool; I love those. Lobethal is a sweet drive, I should have my strut bar by then so I'd be keen to test out the handling. Also a photoshoot along the beach sounds good Just need the wax and polish out

Which saturdays? Sounds like that will be our best bet. I don't seem to have anything in for the next three weeks... the 8th, the 15th or the 22nd.

So we could run down through hills maybe in the early morn (when do you guys wake up? haha) then head off for some beachin' and photos.

I've got the next 3 Saturdays off so I'd be keen to go out on either one of those days.

Plans for hills in the morning then beach after that sound perfect. Should be a nice cruise

Weeeell, should we pencil in the 15th? Gives you a bit of time to get your strut bar on and any other people to see what they're doing.

That's cool. Maybe we could hills in the morning (I think that was sort of the idea) and then beach afterwards.

I'm still good for the 15th, and would be down for a morning cruise!

As for photoshoot locations, I usually take most of my photos up in the hills (Gorge, Montacute and Norton Summit roads). Beaches are awesome spots too

You guys are all so difficult.

How about we start afresh, hahaha. What nights are people free? Like, late. I finish work at about 10pm weekdays, and a night hill cruise would be good for less traffic, and we can work out a day thing for later/next year.

I don't know how much you guys value your sleep though.

Are you free the night of the 13th Zenki? If xeon isn't too exhausted after his work, and maybe even Sam might get along. I'm always up for a drive (well, almost always) so I'd be good for something after 10pm.

I'm good for a cruise on the 13th at night; It was just during the day that I was working. ~10pm sounds good to me, too.

As for free nights, I'll be free every night. Its just with Christmas around the corner, work is calling me in literally every day to help out. (with the odd one or two days free, in which case others aren't free then at the same time )
