Between February 2002 and March 2003 I circumnavigated 12,504 miles around the Australian continent on my bicycle, or push bike as they say there. After that I went to New Zealand for three months and met up with a friend and ended up pushing the total mileage to 14,115.7 miles (22717.02 km). I spent 269 days on my bike, 272 days not on my bike, and getting 67 flat tires over those 17 months.
I started and ended my 13 month lap around Australia at Luna Park in St. Kilda/Melbourne.. The distance around Australia (including Tasmania) ended up being about 20,281km (12,600 miles).
One fun thing I did during my trip was to visit six "confluences", which is where a whole-numbered latitude/longitude mark intersects for The Degree Confluence Project.
Today is cinco de mayo so Robin said we should make a cinco de mayo dinner.
Robin to MCQ and I to the recycling center. It is a recycling center, but also a place where you can pick up second hand things. I picked up an Aerobics record and a Boney M one...mostly for their covers. Laptop needs some new art on it.
Later in the evening all of us made a pilgrimage to the supermarket. We walked across the golf couse and took all kinds of funny videos. Funny, there were still a few crumbs of 97% fat free chocolate cake in places.
The dinner was really yummy. We spent the rest of the evening watching videos from the day and then doing a bunch of LED paintings on a 15 second exposure.
