How about the last step. Do I keep going roundabout?

Uh-huh. Just keep going round and round, it's a national pastime. Like drinking beer, except the breathaliser doesn't recognise 'dizzy as hell'. It's not really 'fun' as such, but it's a reasonable substitute. Apparently. The hoons in my suburb certainly sound like they're enjoying it.

Ya know, I'm a bit perturbed that the directions didn't tell you to drive on the other side of the road! Important info, no?

Do you know how much you'll have to kayak?

First 4400km to Hawaii (#13), then 6200km to Japan (#27) and finally 5400km to Australia (#91).

Wow, that kayak certainly gets some work!! I noticed that they only have you use Hawai'i as a place to let your kayak dry before you jump back in. I wonder why you don't just island hop?? They only have you go to O'ahu! Where's the fun in that?? If you stop on my island then I can help you paddle on the second sea leg. Can we stop in Fiji too please??

Well, not according to our findings


And I found out today why that is. Due to our location close to the sea, before the longest day (so spring and early summer), the cold water mass will keep away the rains and thunder that come in from the south. Which means we'll have nice and dry weather, while it may be raining and be cold in the south.

I also want a cold water mass that keeps me from cold summers. Do you think I should fill the bathtub in my garden with ice cubes?

It's sort of telling that the most number of directions come with the segment in Japan, which is relatively short for the land portion of the trip. They don't mention where you can find kayak or car rentals, either...

Yes. Let us know how it turns out.

Hey, for step #13, 27, and 91 .... i have just the thing. Let me pull out my inflatable kayak. Haven't tried it out yet, but clearly this would be just the trip to use it!

Well, good thing you're carrying that roundy thing instead of your usual sharp-as-a-montsnmags-comeback sword today, Deb. We wouldn't want a catastrophe at sea on our hands.
