The Plan

Heres the plan see...

314 days, 19 countries, 60,000 miles, 30kg of climbing gear and three retired engineers.

On Wednesday we're outta here to live the lifestyle of bums. I hear supermarkets throw out all kinds of good expired food.

Over the last few weeks the bags were packed and unpacked, gear culled and then put back in.

Even before we began Yasi beckoned, threatening to destroy Townsville airport.

But in the end we escaped the planning cave and managed to catch our first flight down to Sydney.

Now some random words of advice we have been given:

Make sure you place a few bolts

Protect your protection

Leave nothing untouched

Stay tuned for the epic adventures to come.
