Buspedition-December 16 2008
« on: October 12, 2008, 06:12:20 PM »
Since there hasn't being a Buspedition this year I thought that I will put dates up early and people can get time off work, make arrangements to get there, etc. I finish school on the 12th and thought that we could have one in the following week which is the 15th to the 19th of December. Please post a preferred date, any runs you would like to go on, places for lunch, runs with drivers like Rob and Fraser on and I will try to get one organized. For me the better days are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday as no-one will be at home (what my parents don't know, won't hurt them)

A little tip to save a dime, get the airliner from BBP not the airport. From BBP it is $1.50 for consc compared to $4.50 from the terminal building. Was last time I used the service anyway!

I'd be a bit concerned about making the connection between the 2 and the 59. You may be better off going for the 51 at 1624 (even that's doubtful) or the 52 or 59 at 1637 and then get 4W at 1706 from GMP - you will still be at Belc Inter in time for the 705.

I don't know about the timing of the 705 to know whether the one minute connection of Tugg Inter will be sufficient - but if it's not, the next intertown is 312 at 1835.

It's too early for me to know what shift I'll be doing that week - I'll find out the week before.

I will be wearing denim shorts, green shirt, thongs and a white hoodie if it is cold with a Brumbies hat, a Global Corporate Challenge Backpack and sunglasses, I will arrive in the city at 0706 on a southbound 313, more than likely an Iris but it is sometimes a .3a or a dart.
