Today was a big day of final preparations for the Headin' South crew. We pulled our bikes apart and packed them in boxes and loaded them on to one of our support vehicles. All our gear was packed: lollies, gels, bars, sun cream, bum cream, socks, sleeping bags, pillows, bike tools, spare tyres and wheels...a very long list of gear.
Tinka and Jase are driving up to Brisbane with the bikes and gear, overnight tonight on the Spirit of Tasmania and two days of solid driving to meet the rest of the team in Brisbane on the 30th Dec.
We will celebrate NYE together in Brisbane (somewhat sedately - I'm sure).
The nine HS riders and six support crew with three vehicles will roll out of Brisbane Fire Station in Roma St at 0530 hours on New Years Day!
We can't wait!!
