    Names - Calum's Road: The Squeakwal? The Long Way Up? Banjul Memories? Raasay Reunion?

    Dates are fantastic for me as all the other events in the coming calender I am working

    GOOD LUCK! BON VOYAGE!

    Do you guys have one of those fancy daily Google map/earth updates?
    Some of us (myself included) are using automatic trackers which send our positions every 10 minutes of the day but for reasons of security it would not be wise to, as was originally planned, to post these on the net in real time.

    You'll just have to wait to see where we have been rather than where we actually are I'm afraid.

    I'll be posting my logs here.

    Anyone else going stir crazy waiting for "the off"?

    Even the wife is asking "Why are you still here?" "Shouldn't you have left by now?".

    Bike is all packed. Can't believe the amount of stuff I've got. I've been through it all today and cut down on everything that is not essential and reduced my clothes by half. Unfortunately, my medications take up nearly half a pannier.

    Wish I'd opted for Fanum's tyre service which would save me lugging the TKCs on back of bike.

    As I'm planning to ride back via Mali I have to take enough bits and bobs to be self sufficient for all the return journey.

    Wow, I'm looking forward to this trip more than any other bike trip in the past and I've been on a few over the last 30 years.

    We are going to have a really memorable adventure.

    Go for four wheel drive, handy in the present circumstances

    Sid - Remember Betty's tyres are in Spain - maybe you could do a deal.

    Just a thought with the sna coming to you.
