Bris-Cape York on 110cc pt.1

Discussion in 'Roads, Touring, Journeys, and Travel' started by mock, May 14, 2008.

  1. A tale of deep joy, of desperate situations, of lots of warmth and the best of human interactions.
    A tale of making mistakes (and learning from them, sort of :) )…of “impossible†routes and nearly getting beaten by the circumstances.

    Of busted engines, T-shirt-riding along 90km beaches and cruising the twisties through the sugar-cane fields and banana-plantations of Northern Queensland.

    Of getting bogged… running against incoming tides and ferry-departure-times….of saving the precious camera while sinking rapidly into sandy creeks, arse first.
    Of shivering into the sinking sun on the washed-over decks of the barge to Hervey Bay in a half-meter swell…and of meeting lots and lots of wonderful people along the way.

    Part 1 leads from Bris-Cairns over 2 weeks....part 2 will start late August '08.


    For all that happened so far...
