Congratulations on your epic. I just don't know how you guys did it (I could only manage if I had a tractor seat). If you are doing Cape Leveque go via a tour of the Willie Creek Pearl farm. Also catcha a Queennie at the Town Jetty. Look forward to seeing you soon.

go dockers (do or die).

ps. that is a mean sunset shot.
We had to buy new seats in Katherine. Look forward to chilling out in Cape Leveque from tomorrow. Had a lovely lunch and cigars (AD) at Matso's brewery. See you in about a week

hope the birthday suit kept the crocs away at Edith Falls...

After spending Friday night freezing at the MCG I'm rather jealous. The only comment I,ve got is who are the grey nomads. Love you both
Bloody Dockers, so close and yet the seasons slipping away. The grey nomads are the retirees in their caravans. They give us cakes and biscuits and iced cordials!

Cheers! Rob has connected me to the Internet. I'm still terrified. Hope you have a fabulous trip to Kakadu and Arnhem Land.
Finally online. Lovely to hear from you and thank you for looking after our gear.

wow i'm tired just reading the itinerary - make sure you eat your sandwiches and keep the sun out of your eyes...
oh and i think you both look very fetching in your waders! v
We'll be having a few shandys too! We are thinking of having a sign saying "water, beer and chocolate appreciated"
From shell - Thursday, 5th April 2007, 08:25 (GMT)
WOW!!!!! so excited for you both! stay healthy and sane. . . i will be checking in with you and wishing you wind at your backs. :)
Hi,
Make sure you keep in touch. Not too sure about the tales winds though as a friend of ours has also done this ride and had horrendous head winds- yikes!

We feel inspired! On the blog front that is. The thought of cycling all that way makes me feel a little dizzy. Details of our blog address to follow.
From Jenny A. - Friday, 8th June 2007, 00:48 (GMT)
CAV staff are missing you- it is soooo quiet here now!
The team is diminishing even further with Richard F. being head hunted & off to the business world:(
The flurry of the PAEC hearing is over & the Corporate Plan is next on the agenda.....I bet you don't care about any of this!!!! Keep well & happy - looking forward to the Kunnanurra news & photos.
From Simon Gridley - Wednesday, 11th April 2007, 06:34 (GMT)
Good luck and I hope it all goes well for ya's....

Cheers

Footy report: "Fremantle have kept their season alive, but in unconvincing fashion" (that's the West for you) - Dockers beat Tigers by 21 points yesterday. Better than Eagles who led by 30 at half time only to lose by the smallest of possible margins to the Bombers on Friday night...


We camped next to some West Coast supporters the other night. They were the biggest bogans we have ever had the misfortuned of camping next to. Jenny has even decided that West Coast is now her most hated team.

Hi Andrew and Jenny,
Saturday was a sparkling day for the Collingwood Children's Market and there was a stall devoted to orange-pink pine mushrooms that only grow in pine forests when they feel like it. We missed having a market-inspired dinner with you. Michael sauteed the pine mushrooms and served them on polenta.

We've been cooking our way through the wonderful larder that you left us from your kitchen including a great borlotti bean and leek casserole with cream and hearty lentil barley stew.

I've volunteered Jo, Anne and Michael to help me with a presentation on the Gippsland Wilderness Bike ride for the July 19 DBUG meeting so I may grab some of your images off the net to use.

We had a very frosty morning with an overnight low of 3C in Melbourne and -2 in the Yarra Valley.

Happy pedalling!
That food all sounds great with our cyclists apetite! We are eating like horses. And people think that petrol is expensive. Good luck with the presentation. We finished our trip now (Broome) and will update with pictures shortly.
From Rod and Helen - Wednesday, 18th April 2007, 23:23 (GMT)
my goodness... very inspiring and a fantastic experience (for us as well as we track your progress)... good luck and may the puncture god be smiling...
We are at opposite ends of Australia now, both unemployed and loving it. We meet up again in Darwin soon - the peace will be over.
From Chris Thompson - Thursday, 17th May 2007, 03:17 (GMT)
Less lounging by the pool you two - more cycling!

Hope the xams went well and that you are both well
Thanks. It's so humid here today so more lounging by the pool is required. Just putting up our first photos so have a look.
From Malini - Friday, 18th May 2007, 07:50 (GMT)
Hi guys
I meant to ring you before you started on your trip but guess it's a bit late now! I'll try and catch up with you later.
Have a great time! Maybe you'll inspire me to actually get back on my bike!! :)
Malini
Its lovely in the dirt Malini.
From Simone - Friday, 18th May 2007, 09:35 (GMT)
Hi guys, Sore buts yet!? Who rides up front and cops the wind?
Stay safe.
Guess who is on the front and who is grovelling behind. AD
From Pommies - Sunday, 20th May 2007, 19:00 (GMT)
Hey dudes

Hope the travel goes well, sounds like it is off to a great start with the pool action. Did you do some pre-ride knick tan fotos? How about chamiox cream, did you get the heavy duty kill all germ stuff?

Dont be afraid of the goannas they make delicious eating!

Look after yourselves and dont sing really annoying repetatitive songs.

A and V
Weve eaten it all, lizard, croc, frog, snake. Sorry have to rush off to the toilet.
From Andrea - Sunday, 20th May 2007, 23:19 (GMT)
I went to that National Trust house in Darwin guys and had the best chocolate mud cake ever!!!!! If you haven't yet left, you must go back and totally indulge, have a peice for me too! Onya bike!
A
Any advice of places to eat etc are always welcome. Petrol prices may be on the rise but so if our fuel intake. Thanks for the email. Think I might need a bit of cheesecake from this cafe- they look devine and 4 different varieties!
From Anna - Monday, 21st May 2007, 03:43 (GMT)
Hi guys, hope the travels so far have been kind on your legs and bums. Take care.
Oh my aching arss. Got new seats though.
From Kon - Tuesday, 22nd May 2007, 06:48 (GMT)
Fantastic...Will tune into the daily adventures of the travelling Duncans.....

Love these blogs....I feel unihibited communicating with this technology. So much so that I'm typing this in wearing nothing but my G and tie....

Well its just tripped over to 5 o'clock....... time to leave work...CU :)
Thats a visual that excites! Bit like the grey nomads.
From HG & Patrick - Sunday, 27th May 2007, 13:30 (GMT)
Great result for the Dockers on Friday night against the Saints...but heartbreaking for Melbourne today - 7 unanswered goals in last quarter but Kangaroos still won by one point...hang on a minute...that should keep Jen happy right?
The dockers have some way to catch up to the roos. keep the footy updates coming through, we dont get to here or see the games.
From Karyn & Michael - Monday, 28th May 2007, 07:45 (GMT)
Bon voyage! Bon courage! Et beaucoup des photos. Hope you became appropriately acclimatised and have enjoyed Kakadu, the rivers and springs. Looking forward to the next instalment. xx
Le voyage est magnifigue mais les bottoms est tres fatigue. How mangled!
From karen & Marg - Thursday, 31st May 2007, 22:59 (GMT)
Scenery fantastic but dont see a lot of grapevines about - you must be thirsty! With you both in mind we cracked a very nice red last night. Hope the 'gel' has done the trick Jen. Keep on riding, riding, riding...... Love from us
Too hot for wine so we are just having shandys. Glad to hear that you are making up for us on the wine front though.
From Michael and Kathleen - Tuesday, 5th June 2007, 02:05 (GMT)
We've been thinking of you both and your trip. Now, finally I open the link to your blog! Great to hear of your journey, and the pictures look great. Cheers
From Mick - Thursday, 7th June 2007, 06:05 (GMT)
Great Pics guys, get some more sun Jen you are a whitey
I am intending to go commando on the Gibb River Road. Keep an eye out for those photos!
