load tomorrow! So at 9pm we went out for our final dinner together with all
the crew but Pete stayed behind?. Been a crazy day with Dave driving all day
on truly serious, important and fully approved shopping missions.He picked
up some of our Ships Life boat buiscuits that will be a part of our food for
48 days and pleanty of last minute spares. Stu worked all day doing all the
last minute editing of training footage. I was keeping up with the media and
then we all got stuck in to load everything into the boat or the Van.
We picked up 16 Tyres to use tomorrow, as we have to some how launch TBB
inside the container to remove the trailer. We plan to put it down on tyres
and then strap it as best we can, before closing the door for the last time.
The container will then go by ship to Auckland in NZ, then transfer to
another ship for the final leg to Tonga.
It was a huge relief to get this all finished and we are right on track. It
has been a sucessful three weeks with the four of us discovering many things
about each other and what lay ahead..and there are still surprises to the
After tomorrow we are all headed in different directions. Between now and
April 8th when we all arrive back in Sydney (for the official International
Launch and send off) the plan is that each week, Dave, Pete and Mike will
blog here for one day each and I will fill the rest...so you can keep up
with what is happening in all our lives before we get into it...

challenging her to a game of "Naughts and Crosses" by Photos on the
Blogs...her in Pink Lady...us in Talisker Bounty Boat??...
