Jul 23, 2008In 2008 we made a tentative decision to head to the UK and beyond on motorbikes and explore the countryside and Transport and Logistics Supply Chain as we had been doing in Australia as well as checking out possible new routes for our trucks and crossing some off the list as well as checking up on some of the great projects we have been involved in over time.
Anyway. Since such a trip (without checking up on projects we were involved in obviously) would involve a lot of travelling….we decided a trial was in order to see if we could stand being on the bikes day after day after day. The obvious decision was made to do a trial run in Australia and if we decided we were over it an International flight wouldn’t be involved to get back home.
So we planned to take a serious road trip here in Australia and incorporate some business meetings and catching up with customers along the way. Then a few days before we headed off my organiser died and I bought my first Blackberry which I learned to use on the trip and so the trip update / blog was born.
PS. The REALLY good news was that the trip (in 2009) was a rip roaring success (and follows…or will soon) and the International trips began in 2010.(I still have to transfer the 2010 one to the blog but plan to do that also.)
