Monday – first day free from our jobs, but no rest for the wicked. Spent the whole day packing and crating the bikes.
The preparation that we had already done paid off and by 21:00, when we called it a day, we had almost finished. The bikes were due to be picked up late Tues or early Weds, so no rush.
Phone call 8:30 Tuesday, the truck is on its way, 45 minutes to finish putting the lids on the boxes, and paint the destinations on the outside. We were still hammering when the truck arrived, but the boxes were soon on the lorry and we waved them goodbye. Five weeks until we are reunited in Los Angeles, all being well.
Arno went and picked his new passport up, riding his oldtimer – our only transport. Then we sent off our passports to Berlin. Looks like we will be flying to LA via somewhere in Australia.Posted by Sian Mackenzie at August 22, 2002 05:50 PM GMT
