OK, this isn't a Road Glide trip, but it will be the trip of my lifetime to date.
I'm heading out from Texas on May 31st to Oz for my Outback East-to-West trip with Magnus and his Outback Adventure Treks crew. I'm pretty sure I'll be the lone Texan in a crowd of five Kiwis and six Aussies.
I've set up a blog page which will include live map plotting with 2-minute updates and inbound/outbound messaging. The blog can be found at www.WizardofAUS.net.
I've been updating it for several months as I have been supplying, preparing, and conditioning for the trip, but the original entry can be found here
. Although I've logged tens of thousands of miles since, his is my first adventure trip since my Arctic Circle
ride in 2011.
Anyone interested in receiving email and/or text map updates from the trail from my satellite messenger can get on my distribution list by following the instructions here
. If you specify a text, please indicate your country.
I realize there are a lot of links here, but the blog is not monetized in any way and I will neither spam you nor distribute your contact information. I will send a confirmation email when I get your add request and a test message or two prior to my departure.
If you happen to be going on this trip or have gone on one like it previously, I would love to hear from you and gain insight from your experience.
