The Big Darwin ride

May 01, 2009

The Ride was finally underway but I somehow managed to delete the first part of it from the Blackberry. Technology really is grand in the hands of amateurs!

Any way I have some photos from the early part of the trip and will include them over time then get to the actual record I kept.
Let me tell you by the time we got to Sydney my butt was complaining somewhat but I was getting used to it by then but after travelling along the coast and amongst rural areas the Sydney traffic felt pretty full on. The thing which lightened the situation as we fuelled up on our way towards Newcastle was when Norm told me he thought we should meet Steve in one of our trucks before too long so he called him and they figured we would meet within around 15 – 20 minutes and sure enough we did so we were riding along waving madly and he was flashing his headlights and hanging out the window. I love how these boys have this innate ability to know exactly where they are in time and space and I always get a buzz when I see any of our trucks on the road, it’s just an extra buzz when it’s also a family member.
