Arrived in Sydney! PODCASTS announced.
Thursday, March 22, 2007

PHEW! We made it to Sydney!
Life's been pretty hectic lately and I was still packing at 3am the night before we left for our Australian adventure. This photo is taken at midnight when I'd just started packing!! Being somewhat more organised, Alun left me to it soon after that.

Michael Steinfield kindly met us at Sydney airport at a ridiculously early time and brought us back to his and Audrey's home. ( see bottom photo of me trying to look up Michael's phone number on my laptop - impressive red eyes!) Thanks to Michael & Audrey for looking after us.

Since we've been here, we've had a look around Sydney and admired the sights a bit before trying to get prepared for our Bass Strait crossing at the start of April. Oh, and trying to get over the jetlag.

Later today we drive down to Batemans Bay with Michael for the annual New South Wales kayak club get together which we're really looking forward to. Then we spend a 4-5 days kayaking and camping in the Nadgee Wilderness reserve with some of the locals, before Laurie is kindly driving us down to Port Welshpool to start our Bass Strait crossing. We expect to start this around 2nd April.

Some exciting developments mean that we'll be trying to bring you daily podcasts of the Bass Strait expedition. For anyone who doesnt know, that's a voice recording of the daily events. I hope it will be like a daily blog, but that you listen to rather than read. I'm not sure exactly where it will appear on my website at present or exactly how it's going to work, as I have the easy job of making the phone call.

I'm excited to be working with Race Recon,, ( sorry, I can't make links work from my mac!) who provide support for some cutting edge expeditions around the world. They will be putting the podcasts and a map of our locations onto my website, and some other places so you can follow along.

Derrick Mayoleth, my fantastic website designer & upkeeper, and creator of , will be working with RaceRecon to make this happen.

So keep an eye on the website and I hope you enjoy it. Alun & I plan to do an initial podcast today hopefully!

Here's to an 'uneventful' yet fun crossing! Enjoy.
