In just about one month I am moving to Australia. What a better way to kick off a new country than a bike tour eh? How about a (5513km * .62)mile bike tour?
Here is the plan.
March 16th or 17th: By this time I should be well settled into being homeless and have everything except my track bike and daily needs packed up. On one of these days we’ll pack up and head down to Los Angeles.
March 18th (at some more reasonable time of day): Will get dropped off at LAX and wait for a 2200ish flight. Hopefully not getting so drunk I will not be allowed to board. Actually with any luck I will just check my bags and head back to DTLA.
March 19th 2012: I will never experience this day. Hope it is a really shitty one.
March 20th 0800ish: I will arrive in Sydney Australia.
March 20th/21st: Jetlag and pickup.
March 22nd: Probably more Jetlag, hopefully (doubtfully) more pickup. Flight (evening) to Perth with polo bike and touring bike.
March 23rd: Pickup, boozing, catching up with friends (eh, its only been since Nov for a lot of them).
March 24th/25th: BOOOOZE, I mean AHBPC 2012 (booze).
March 26th: Drink up the tears of Melbourne, recover, pawn my polo bike (off on someone headed back to Sydney, love ya!). Adventure on!
1 week, 4 major cities, (15000km+ * .62) miles and 3 bikes later I will start what is planned for right now as a (5500km * .62) mile tour from Perth to Sydney, hugging the coast, passing throught (R)Adelaide, Melbooorne and back up to Sydney where I might have to find a job (fuck!). hhhhmmokay… back to pretending to pack.
