NSW - QLD meet/photoshoot [UPDATED FIRST POST]

Well, since those kids are coming across the border, Marc and myself have decided we need to have a meet up. Bad news, the rig wont be fixed in time. Therefore we cannot take rig shots. (You dont have to give me $20, but i will take donations for being awesome )
I however plan to ride with Marc to downshift and will take some shots on the road.

Date: Saturday, 20th April...This year.

Time: We can meet for lunch? Theres a Nandos at clayfield (close to the meet point) or we could find elsewhere...I just have a nando's addiction. So i suggest nandos for every meal.

Or we could meet at the meet point at around 1pm.

We will then cruise to Downshift at around 3:15ish.

DOWNSHIFT:

A automotive one. One with a couple of suction cups, a long poll and a mount you put your camera on.

We're hoping to acheive something like this.

I'm definitely up for a meet and wouldn't mind some pics of my car if you can edit out the ugly haha.
I've also got a Sony action cam so I'll bring that if I come.

Well you guys can organise a cruise if you want, but i feel this will take up most of a good solid 5 hours if not more... At the end of that, i'll be shagged and going home Plus my car is a boat, not as fun as the SP on the windy roads On the bright side, it gets up hills much easier

We can organise this for the Saturday and then you can go cruising on the sunday? Yeah yeah?

Yah was just posting to inform people. Would you be up for maleny cruise on the sunday ben? Prolly throw some bald knob rd in there. Would prolly start Brissy end, through bald knob, up through maleny and either down through Hunchy (of if palmwoods-something road is open again it) and then lunch somewhere. Or along the top of the range and lunch at the pub thats at Nambour end where all the bikies stop.

Think I might be forced to do a scouting to trip to make sure the roads are ok *sigh*

Yeah well on the day you guys can organise it, seeing as how i think we'll get a pretty good turn out for this I'll be keen as a jellybean and come for some lunch if you plan to head up here. If you want me to check out the palmwoods road and see if its open i can go for a drives on the weekend and look for you.

Me and Marc will be location scouting on the weekend for this

Tis ok. We'll do tambo another day/night.

Do Sunny Coast as it means that we potentially include as many people as possible from QLD, if they dont want to go after catering for as many as we can then thats up to them

It will still involve driving by some parties. Prolly the people with the longest drives will beMarc and Sam.
