Hello all!

Im heading out to Oz at the beginning of December, with plans to go all over. Just seeing if any other Backpackers are keen on watching some of the Ashes whilst in Oz? It'd be great to get a group of us together to give the Barmy Army a run for their money in the booze and rowdiness stakes!

Hello Mate,

I fly out with a mate a week tomorrow, Cannot wait. We are on about doing at least 2 of the Ashes test and joining the barmy army. Were both from Newcastle and going out there on a 1 way ticket so will be out there for when you arrive.

Unsure of what tests but we are planning on doing them and going mental.
