Only 10 days to go now until I depart. It's great to see that so many friends and relatives have donated to the charities or promised to do so, so that I am a third the way towards my target.
Also had a pack up of all the stuff I expect to take to see if it fits into four pannier bags. Good news, it does. The bad news is the rail strike likely on Saturday 3 April, but if I can conjure up the time before I go it may be possible for me to cycle to Portsmouth starting on April Fool's Day - is that a good day to start though!?
Enough of this blurb now - it will be best to post again once there is something interesting to tell everyone!
