2022 Northern RoadTrip - re-scheduled!

Happy New Year to all!

Since Covid-19 caused the cancellation of the Northland RoadTrip loop last October, we are re-scheduling it to run from the 18th to 23rd April 2022. It has been extended to 6 days and we look forward to meeting old and new friends on the journey!

As this is basically a holiday in EVs everyone is responsible for booking their own accommodation or finding friends to stay with, although as we have done previously there will be some joint meals organised for those wanting to be included. Meal costs will be allocated to attendees!

We will flesh out possible activities as we go, but some are shown on the spreadsheet as indicators of things to do, but I am sure potential trippers will suggest more. This is planned to be a leisurely roadie, with plenty of time to just sit or stand around chatting!

I would ask those contemplating joining the RoadTrip to email me ([email protected]) with attendee names, any children and their ages, car details and cell number, and I will create another spreadsheet sheet!
