  2. Meetup for the ride is the Coles Express Service Station, Neutral Bay. Behind the Oaks Hotel. Departure time is 7:00am sharp
  3. Hey mate, count me in.

    Just a couple questions before I commit.

    1. Size of group going

    2. Can I join the ride at some point along the route

    3. Is sleeping in the haunted house an option? Have my own bed roll, Sleeping bag, pillow.
  4. Hi Clint,

    The number in the group will be 10. Whilst accommodation facilities at the Homestead will cater for a few more, I'd like to keep the number at 10 this first time round.

    You can join the ride at a point along the way. We would work out where would be suitable and what time, exchange contact details and I'd SMS you when we depart.

    Accommodation arrangements provided by the Homestead do not include sleeping in the haunted rooms themselves. "You will not be staying in the haunted rooms, but in the comfortable and spacious guest rooms."

    If you know of someone else who might be interested, pass the word. One spot left now.

    I will stay in touch and reach out for deposits soon.

  5. I could bring the mrs, or is it a boys trip?
  6. Now sharing a bed with some other bloke is a "haunted experience" by itself, especially if am snoring LOL :)
  7. I spoke to the Mrs. she'd like to come so that would fill your final spot.

    Also would it be possible for us to get one of the double rooms? or are they already earmarked?

    I'll PM my phone number for when you are taking deposits.
  8. Hi Clint. Your wife is most welcome. I think that will make it 4 ladies in the group now. She will be in fine company. Taking deposits now. PM me yr phone number and I'll send you bank details to transfer deposit to. Put your name in transfer reference so I can see who the money has come from to track deposits. Can't take cash. Prefer security of bank transfer.
    I've reserved one of the rooms with a double bed for you and your wife Clint. Room # 1 for yr reference.
    Season greetings and stay safe over these holidays.
