The list of things to do is getting smaller by the day…
Plane tickets purchased
Vaccinations complete (minus one more rabies shot)
Malaria pills figured out (Mefloquine – hopefully I don’t have the mental side effects that are discussed)
Bike put together and tested
Gear is arranged on the floor, ready for packing
Quite a few people have asked about the security of riding through Sudan because of the reforendum scheduled for the second week of January. TdA is staying current on the situation and we have had to modify the route of our support truck (i.e., there won’t be the normal one but a local subsitute). If things really go awry, the plan is to fly over the country(ies). Stay tuned!
