Adelaide – Sydney September 10 – 25, 2002 Perth – Adelaide October 7 – 25, 2002 Why? “For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather bed of civilisation, an find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints.” Robert Louis Stevenson

Where is Bob?

Bob was last seen at the Melbourne Train Station, enroute to Apollo Bay, Victoria. It was traumatic abandoning him in cold, rain, and wind but his spirits were high and his “paniers” (containers on the side of the bike) were perfectly packed. He can explain the route deviations.

The morning news in Melbourne is about SEVERE wind warning, fallen power lines, trees falling on homes. Bob will explain the revamped route when he surfaces from the gales.

I’ll be on a plane for the next 15 hours and anxiously looking forward to his update!
