Just a quick short and sweet post to let you know that we received our letter of endorsement from Aussie Helpers today. Also see below a more detailed version of our route plan.
In some earlier letters and promotions we stated that we were leaving on the 18th of June, as it turns out we mixed up our dates and we’ll now be leaving two days earlier on the 16th of June.
The website is finally up and running with only a few little things that still need tweaking. I spoke to Nerida Egan (co-founder of Aussie Helpers) on the phone today, she thinks we’re mad but loves the idea and thinks it’ll be a great trip. James’ bike is currently in Newcastle were it is being modified for trip, at the moment it is having the long range tank fitted and new tires put on. While some canvas panniers are being made to go on back, my bike will be modified as soon as James is complete. -Martin
