So we're fast approaching our 10th day of cooling our heels in beautiful Dawesville waiting to find out if our bikes are ever going to clear agriculture, customs or just plain get unloaded from the ship, or maybe just maybe they'll actually find the container that the bikes were put in. Our trip is quickley getting modified to suit the delay, as at the latest we figured that we'd be on the road by tomorrow. Well thats gone to hell in a handbasket.
Fortunately Bob and Kati have been the most patient and generous of hosts as they deal with our day to day not knowing if we are going, and we're sure the girls at Thrifty Car Rental think we're nuts as we phone each morning to extend our rental agreement just one more day.
As it stands today, our forwarding agent has no idea when our bikes will be released from Agriculture quarantine, sooooooooo our amended plan is to ride like crazy people across the Nullabour after visiting Wagin, pop into 4Ways in Port Augusta, scoot over to Silverton, down to Portland and the arrive out of breath and saddlesore at Phillip Island to watch the amazing W.S.K.
Let you know when that all happens.
"The calendar is magnificent!"
"I just wanted to say how much I'm loving the new, larger calendar!"
