The Countdown

To entertain you all, here is a photo of us in 1990 cycle touring from Christchurch to Picton, aged 21.  No Instagram photo effects here, this is what the pre-digital world really looked like.

Most people thought we were mad cycling to Hanmer Springs, through the Rainbow road to St Arnaud, then down to Picton, when we could have driven to Picton in the car in 4 hours.  Most people still think we are mad cycling from Melbourne to Brisbane.

We leave in 2 weeks and things are super busy getting ready.  We have all our gear ready and the house is ready for the house sitters but there is still a lot of work to get done before we leave.  Websites to finish and parent/teacher meetings for Jen.

Blog posts will come more often now as we pack, depart and start our journey.  Getting excited!!
