Australia Decals

Well the Decals all went on this morning, and I am really pleased with the result.  Not too much, not too little, just says what needs to be said.

Australia Last Minute Jobs

Well, its Boxing Day now, and while there is no longer anything major to do to Elsie, small things keep rearing their heads, as I am sure they will continue to do as long as I have the car here !  Once it is loaded on the boat, it will be too late.

Australia The Route Part 2

So, assuming Elsie and I arrive in Anacortes safe and sound in April some time, the next part of the route to be selected was from Anacortes to Alaska.

Australia The Route Part 1

The route to Alaska was determined by several things -
  • Where the ship from Australia would land in America
  • The time of year
  • The weather
  • Personal choices

Australia History

After nearly 18 months of planning and preparation, today I have at last got a firm sailing date for my little Lotus Elise to be shipped from Brisbane to Los Angeles - ETD 5th January, ETA 21st February.  This is the real start of our adventure, and at this stage I have an equal mix of apprehension and excitement flowing through me.  What started as just a vague (and many said crazy) idea 18 months ago is now finally about to start.
