Well I have finally taken the plunge and resigned from my role as National Sales Manager for a Marine Refueling company and my last day at work will be the 14th of November 2013. I delayed my departure due to the sale of the business, but that is now all behind me and I am ready to go. Sold my house in Adelaide, but kept a property in Darwin as a safety net, ended my lease in Perth and sold almost all of my worldly possessions. All I have is a few bits and pieces, one fully set up bike and my car which I will sell after using it to trailer the bike to Darwin as I have already ridden that road before and it bloody hot and wet that time of the year. The trusty stead My work took it really well and a three day Marlin Fishing Competition I had been invited to at the end of the month is still on, was convinced I would not get to go on that after resigning, so they must still like me just a little. Five days in Queensland and three days of Marlin fishing is a hell of a way to work out your notice....my life is so hard. So its done.... I'm ready, the bike is ready and all that is left is a bit of paperwork to complete and I am good to go. Hope to be in Darwin around the 22nd of November and then ship the bike to East Timor with a planned arrival date of the 5th of December. Life is adventure.
