Progress Update.

So just an update on how things are progressing with our planning.

We moved out of our house in last weekend and the tennants/future owners started to move in today.  Hopefully all goes well for them.  Being free from the house is a burden off our shoulders.

We still have a heap to do.
  • Finish getting the bike ready, should done in a couple of weeks.
  • Confirm things with the shippers (and maybe choose a different one).
  • Sharon is chasing down visa's for Russia, Mongolia and the 'Stans.
  • Get some more credit cards.
  • Still need to a little more gear, replacement sleeping bags as ones we have now are too cold, and we need some longjohns and the like to wear under our bike gear.
  • Still need to build a list of must sees for the first few months.
Might not sound like much, but these things have a way of creeping up on you.

It is starting to get exciting, but I am more than a little nervous also.  What have we forgotten?  Have we done enough preparation? Are my assumptions about the weather reasonable?  Will we have enough money?

It 10 weeks until we board our plane in Perth.  It doesn't seem very far away at all.

Cheers for now,
