Not wrong, redtf. Not seeing many Gems around Launceston. Bit of a shame.

So. How will I make sure my Gem will manage to do a 3000km road trip and not break down?
Also, what do you guys recommend I see in Tas?

I recommend staying indoors and turning ya heater on lol

As for things to see theres some caves at mole creek, the Great lake if ya feel like freezing your nuts off. The bay of fires has a nice beach again you'll probs freeze your nuts off at this time of year.

Theres MT ben lomond near launceston or MT wellington near hobart at least you'll expect it to be cold there.

take the ghost tour at port arthur it sure to be really cold down there.
Also keep a sharp eye out for the inbred six finger two headed tasmanian :lol:

Really dude all the above mentioned places are quiet nice at the right time of year but its pretty cold down atm.

I went camping with the missus the other weekend and it didnt get above 3 and was below -5 at night.

I'm in Trevallyn / Riverside (on the border pretty much). I do see the odd grasnny-spec Gem here and there when I wander through the city.
Description of your Gem rings a bell. May have seen it in the city a while ago.
I've got a white series 3 R31, dumped a heap and white glare strip. You may have seen it literally bouncing around the place. :lol:
Noticed you're out Ringarooma way. What's it like out there? Looking at renting a place out that way if all goes well with this new bus driving job. Telstra be the only phone network that works out that way?

Sounds familiar, possibly seen near the cinemas or even on the blocky route :lol:

It's not bad out here very quiet and the locals can be pricks but its not too bad. yeah telstra is the only phone service that works here and even thats very unpredicdable.

Well, I intend coming down at the beginning of November so hopefully it will be warm enough. What's it like going across in the ferry?
I have mapped a route that takes us right around the island, about 1000km. Should get a pretty good look at everything I reckon.
Thanks for all the info.

Redtf, you quite possibly have seen it near the cinema! I do get around a bit. :lol: Might look at moving up the West Tamar a bit. There's a cheap place at Deviot at the moment. Would be great to have a bit of room in preparation for a project Gem.
Where abouts did you take your lady camping? Wasn't up Myrtle Park? I've been there a couple of times. Not a bad spot.
Dbart1961, when you come to Tas you will be cold, as Redtf mentioned a couple of times. :D If you're in Launceston I'd recommend checking out Cataract Gorge and the Automotive Museum.
In Hobart, meh I hate Hobart, I'd be checking out Salamanca Markets (if you're into hippy sort of stuff.) Joes Garage is worth going to for a beer or 20 (it's a bar that's decked out with a HEAP of car bits and pieces.)
If you want a cool drive that actually takes you somewhere, head out west to Strahan. Very cool place. Very touristy though.

I've been watching you. HAHA. Nah. Figured that'd be the only decent spot close to where you're at. Those fire pots with the swivel plate to cook on are great aren't they!?

I've got a red 83tg with a dent in the hood, and just got some 13x8 chrome jellybean mags put on for my 18th.
Just putting that one out there!
I'd be very keen to meet up with some local Gemini owners, especially the owner of the blue gem with jellybean mags.
Very, Very neat :D
