I know there are a few of us on here from this big, brown land and was hoping to explore the possibility of a G2G. So don't be shy and let yourself be known.

Hi Hurts, I'm from Melbourne too. Obviously I'm not as advanced in my 'healing' as I thought I was, cause I'm still not ready to surrender my anonymity.

Please don't cross me off the list forever, though. One day I will cast off this cloak of shame.

Jrazz, you and the rest of the razzies are always welcome down here

You may have to eat vegemite though . You certainly don't have to enjoy it or continue eating it though

We make everyone try it as a test of their mettle.

Ps- no one drinks Fosters here and kangaroos dont run rampant through the city streets . Ok occasionally when they get free they do

I didn't try haggis in Scotland... I think that exempts me from cultural food elsewhere. Perhaps we can incorporate it into a dare or something...

I didn't try haggis in Scotland.

Hi dear Aussie friends

I'm from a couple of hundred ks south of Brisbane.

Small town so I can't be too specific.

Really hope we can have a GTG in Brissie sometime.

I have thought about one often.

Please, please let's do one in Brissie. Maybe January????

BIG HUGS to all

Another Queenslander here. Far North. Brisvegas is preferable for me. But who am I kidding? I live so far away from anywhere I be travelling some distance wherever it is. Count me in.

Looks to be something in the water in QLD. Perhaps the "Sunshine State" moniker needs changing?

Anyone up for the night of Saturday 18 January for a BrisVegas G2G? Lets start 2014 with a show of solidarity, the possibilities of new friendship but mostly a great excuse for a night on the lash

Not sure where yet, suggestions welcome.

What about a date in Feb or Mar?

Any other Ozzies out there who can make it?? Im still thinking BrizVegas based on the numbers of locals there.

Plus I get to go to Dreamworld etc

I will be there until near the end of March. Not sure about the original date choice tho. That one might not work for me, but I shouldn't really have a vote anyway. I'm just a hanger-on looking to crash your party.

Anyone else able and want to meet?

Could possibly do an opposite Saturday if those are not workable.
