All packed and on my way…

So I’m all set. The gear came in at 54lbs all in and I’ve some extra stuff with Zhanna, who’ll be with me Pre trip in BA.
Amelia and Beatrice, my beautiful daughters set me off with love and laughter on the phone and step son Mike is off to stay with Uncle Russ and Aunty Ella – thanks guys!
The years closing in at a real rate of nots – can’t believe I’m packed and enroute to be honest, I must have forgotten something for sure, but for now the missing item eludes me.
My riding buddy Q’s leaving Washington as I type and the third of our trio, Fewelly, is wrapping up his Xmas on the beach in Sydney. Poor things got a 28hour trip ahead of him, to then jump straight on the plane.
98 degrees in BA tomorrow, a spot different to the snow storm we’re expecting in NY tomorrow. Time to get those white pins into the sun tomorrow!

About willindakar

Every few years I try and embark on a trip that takes me to places, both physically and mentally, far beyond anywhere I have been before, as a CEO or father. Climbing the highest summits of Antarctica and Europe, diving with Great White sharks, Motorbiking the highest road in the world are a few of the boxes I've ticked - but the trip i am about to depart for should be one of the most testing. Riding with the hardest land race in the world - The Dakar 2011.
