The Organization is major for this kind of trip

Start : 29 March 2013 in Adelaide

End : unknown

Preparation :
3 days on internet
wrote the water tank and how many kilometres between each town, roadhouse or rest area for planning how much food to carry

no training
no knowledge about bike
but Resourceful is my advantage

My trick is always thinking about the risks that can happen and to know a maximum of alternative.

Sleep in the bush, several metres side of the road
Tent, sleeping bag, stove, pot and matches.

Meals :
I thinking about this meals because its light in the bags and don't use water.
For breakfast and break :  slice of crunchy peanut butter with honey over.
For Lunch : Slice of tuna, cucumber and cheese and apple
Not Dinner

But after 2 weeks, I can't eat anymore breads every times...
