We're off! After a string of wonderful leaving functions, we dragged our enlarged livers off on our big trip at 9.30am on Tues 9th June:-
We munched home made pasties (thank you Mirella, we have now run out, so pls make more and send them on!) while driving in the rain from Melbourne to Sydney, 900km. Our first night was in palacial Balgowlah Heights with Sarah, Kareen, Daniel and Sophia. If you are going to rough it in a tent quite a bit over the next 6 months, you might as well start in style.
