China Bound

... the floating blue bubble and with the exception of the need to get there via a lump of plastic and metal directed by biological matter (where is that Star Trek transporter thingy), the allure of something completely new is a bit awesome. I have been attending some briefings and meetings with folk that have done this before and from what they say I am quite prepared to be the proverbial country hick from the bottom of the planet in the Jetsons space ...

... I also felt very emotional as we were standing at the door of the mine where The two miners Grant and Todd emerged after the collapse of the mine.

... had a talk by a very knowledgable guide who explained the life history and main threats to the platypus, before introducing us to real animals. He continued telling us about the history of their discovery, and how the first specimens taken to UK were thought to be fakes. The bill of a duck, the skeleton of a lizard but covered in fur and egg laying for reproduction was just too extreme for latter day biologists. We heard about the defensive venom they carry ...

... Miles being right.

The Safari route disappointingly ended in the peak hour rush of Launceston. I was hoping for a Dakar style finish line with crowds cheering and photographers snapping my picture. I must have come into Launceston the back way. There was time for fuel but I was concentrating too much on Jake adjusting tyre pressures that I filled up with unleaded instead of Ultimate. (Shh, what Glen doesn't know won't hurt him). At least ...
