Tag-a-Long 2023 — 32 Comments

  1. Hello Ray and Fellowship Friends of Bill W.
    My Australian wife and I have just heard about this incredible 12th Step Tag-a-long work and want to come and join you next year 2024.We live in the UK (London) so the planning has to start now!
    What we need the most help with is getting a 2 berth motorhome for at least 2 months (Toilet, Kitchen). Checking the Aussie options on the web makes it look expensive and complicated and I figure you may have some contacts or ideas that may help?
    We have an Elddis 2 berth 6 metre Autoquest in the UK so know what we’re doing over here. It’s probably a little different in QLD! If you have any thoughts how best we can make this happen, we would be most grateful to hear them.Good luck and happy trails

    • G’day Ray,
      Don’t have any contacts in that field all I can do is post your comment and see if someone with more knowledge than myself can help out with your request for help. Meanwhile I will ask around the people I know and see if one of them might be able to make some suggestions.

  5. G’day Ron, greatly enjoyed the tagalong last year except for a hiccup or 2, even though I had to pull the pin at Winton, plan on doing the full tag this year, and will be better prepared for the cold, I am having some difficulties navigating the web sites, so can you tell me when the Lightning Ridge weekend starts

  6. Being a newbie and travelling on my own it would be helpful to know information re accomodation? How does this work? I have a campervan and unsure from the details on this page whether I’m researching and booking my own in advance or the group as a whole has places booked. Just needing to start to put plans in place and mind at ease. Thanks

    • G’day Romi, mate the people on the Tag normally look after their own accomodation as we go. Some do free parking others who need power go to parks and we try to have a meeting point for the meetings. We usually talk to each other as we go, however on this Tag we have the Possum Park booked in Injune as a member got it at a good rate & it has a meeting venue. Hope this helps.
