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.
woke up early this morning, body felt sore. I hope I'm not getting sick, but I feel sore enough to tell mom I don't feel like going to school today.
Today I turn 30, yay! Ween's "Birthday Boy" is stuck in my head...although in the song they are playing answering machine messages and the woman says "you're a big 20...no longer a teenager!". More stuff coming today, I'm updating the lunky.com site today so this entry will soon change...blum blum de dum.
MCQ and I walked around town for most of the day. We were going to go out for my birthday tonight but I wasn't feelinng so hot. We rented a couple movies, Insomnia and "They". Insomnia was decent, "They"...well, sucked.
