Road Trip

Jim and I are rolling out this morning (5am or so) towards the outback. Our trip will take us through Adelaide and then up to Darwin. Even though this is my second such trucking trip, I'm pretty nervous about the whole thing. It's a long way to go, and to assume there will be no vehicle troubles would be wishful thinking. It is very remote out there, and as much as you think you've planned out the journey, anything can happen.

I've decided to take the long route there as it is somewhat more "familiar" to me. The route will follow the official race course during our stretch through Adelaide to Darwin. Today we hope to make 1100-1200 kms reaching Mildura outside of Adelaide. We'll drive into Adelaide on Friday and end our drive somewhat early in Port Augusta 3 hours north on the Stuart Hwy. Our next stop will be Alice springs on Saturday, and Hopefully Katherine by Sunday night arriving in Darwin by noon Monday. That's the plan. I hope to be in touch from the road, but there are no guarantees that we'll have online access.

We have a team phone number that will work sporadically through the outback until we hit Darwin. Feel free to contact us at 011 61 (0)4 15756913. This net kiosk won't let me upload pictures so you'll have to wait a few more days :). I hope the suspense is killing you all :).
