    Thanks, pyrah - forgot about doing that.

    Another post now added, this time about making a jerrycan rack so that I don't run out of petrol whilst underway.

    I hope I can keep this rate of posts and photos up whilst I'm on the road. All I'll need is a power source and a 3G connection...

     get some compression bags from the camping store for your clothes and soft items.  they really help to reduce the bulk.  how will you carry the tent, I strapped mine in under the front of the seat on the bali.

    I have enough space under the sear, t2bitha, to fit my tent in. It's tiny, so it's not an issue. I can strap it on, worst comes to the worst, but at this point I shouldn't need to. I do need to look into compression straps - just when my list was getting shorter, it's growing again ;)

    Well, on the final day I might, as I'm planning on coming back through one of Adelaide's surrounding wine regions (depending on the route home from Melbourne), so I might end up with a bottle or two to celebrate upon arrival back home ;)

    Speaking of which, it's been suggested to me that a ride to see me off from Adelaide would be a nice way to start the trip. If there's anybody in Adelaide interested in doing so, let me know.

    ...and if anyone was wondering about me-- I'm now in Mt Isa, about 3,000 kms into the trip. :)
