We were supposed to be ‘on the road’ today. Heading for Wiluna. There was a gratefully accepted suggestion last night when I finally made it home from my last day at work to delay a day so that I could feel ‘ready’.
It’s just as well we did.
A loaded road-test of my intended trailer this morning wasn’t the happy confirmation of steady tracking and ‘follow my lead’ that should have been the case. Coincidentally I’d had an email from Aga and Mateusz – a Polish couple who’d just got back to Perth after attempting the Canning Stock Route themselves. They offered to let me look at their trailer and see what I thought. All the handling problems were solved and the show was back on the road. Amazingly their only stipulation to lend me the trailer was that I return it to them in Poland after the trip. An absolute godsend :-)
And again – a place to watch our map-crawl and a place to donate if you’re inspired.
Good luck, all! Happy desert pedalling, Tom and Scott, and other adventures, Sarah and Bryn.
Wishing you all the best for your trip. Don’t forget to take lots of detailed bike pics. Will be following the blue dot.
There will be plenty of bike related pics and a few dedicated ‘bike geek’ posts afterwards.
Wishing you a safe an exciting trip!! We’ll be thinking of you over here…glad Sarah and Bryn will get to see you off at the beginning xx
Have fun out there (-:
I’m sure you’re off on your way. Have an amazingly unique time!! We’ll be watching for any sign of you from Sarah’s updates. Patti
