The planning for this trip has been quite minute in some ways, but notwithstanding, the last couple of days have been frantic with last minute chores, errands, documentation etc. Oh, and a visit to the doctor and then the pharmacist for some sleeping tablets. The idea is that we WILL sleep on the plane and not feel like zombies when we arrive at LAX.
We have done some packing and are presently on a break to have dinner and chat with the girls. Quite jolly it is, but immediately after this post it is back to packing.
We have been quite overwhelmed by the kind interest shown in our adventure by colleagues, family and friends. Thank you. The moral support is much appreciated.
The flight leaves at 09h30 tomorrow and we are so keen that Qantas fly on time and indeed, arrive early: we have a two hour window for our connecting flight. I, in particular, am rather focussed on being reunited with the bike and Friday is better than Monday.
Time to close and get packing. Our next post will probably be date-lined Portland, Oregon.
