The Long Ride

Less than ten days away now, and the excitement mounts.

Some interesting statistics:

The distance from Sydney to Perth in a direct line is 3,301 km

Our route (subject to deviations) is 5,736 km according to Google Maps. It will be longer once we include the side trips we have planned.  It will be another 550+k for me if you count riding to Perth and back to Katanning.

The distance from Perth Au to Wellington NZ in a direct line (great circle) is 5257.6 km.

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    Actually we are planning to do Brisbane to Broome next year, Then Broome to Perth. I may just do Katanning to Port Hedland and back myself sometime, sleeping out in the swag.
