  • Argentina with Macca

    Friday, March 19th, 2010 [11:49:03 AM]
    posted by Todd Barry

    A quick update:
    Myself and Macca (a good mate of Simon) have flown to Argentina to make arrangements to bring Simon home on behalf of his family. We have recieved a great deal of support over here, largely driven by Macca's father in law John.
    We (everyone here in Argentina on the job) are doing all that we can to bring the big guy home and we greatly appreciate all your messages and support. We will keep you all updated on the progress.

    Back home Mark (Simon's Brother) is making all the necessary arrangements, a job that no doubt has been difficult while also coming to terms with the loss and supporting his family, he is a strong man and is dedicated to bring home Simon. Send him your support and think of him in this difficult time.

    Also for those of you who know Macca, his Wife and family, please spare a thought for them, they too are working to help in any way they can. Maddy, Macca's wife is not only dealing with the loss of Simon but also the absense of her husband which comes at a time when their family home in Airlie Beach (north QLD) comes under threat of Tropical Cyclone Ului. So please spare a thought also for Macca's family.

    Bad news, today someone decided that they needed my computer more than I do. I am extremely disappointed. There was only a pregnant woman at the hostel and three locals in suits came in to the hostel looking for rooms, one walked upstairs and grabbed my computer. Very disappointing to lose all of my addresses and my research. I am in the process of deciding what to do about replacing it at his stage of the project?

    I am currently in Cartagena in Colombia and all is good. I took a 5 day yacht ride to get over here from Puerto Lindo in Panama to Cartegena in Colombia. The ride was rough and the bike took a fair bit of salt water, but that was expected.

    Customs in Colombia was a breeze, one of the easiest. I am looking forward to getting back on the road and moving southward for Antarctica.

    It's kind of funny that coming from Australia you just don't think of Central America as a travel destination, but the truth is that this is the equivalent of Asia to Aussies. There is a well worn trail of tourism from Mexico to Argentina, and I am in the loop. It is kind of handy because I only have about 8 weeks to get to the bottom of Argentina and over to Antarctica, the stops are out - Again!

    I have to admit that I never really knew anything about Belize before coming here, but the history, full of Carribeans and Engish Pirates makes for an amazing place. A bit of the Carribean on the Mainland where (almost) everyone speaks English. Not expected at all.

    The relaxed atmosphere began at the border, when getting my passport stamped in immigration the border guard asked me to have a rum punch for him. Deal.

    Karen and I took a sailing and snorkelling trip on the worlds second largest barrier reef for Christmas - my present - not getting too sunburned!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. :-)

    Leaving Todd in LA where he intends on pursuing an acting career (well having a better look around) I pushed on into Baja Mexico. He is working out where to meet up down the track.

    Mexico is awesome, and I am far enough south now to actually be warm at nights. I met a couple of Aussie boys at the border and travelled with them for the first few days through what was largely desserted and cold.

    I got my first sunburn today, staying on the beach near a town called Mulege. I met a Canadian guy heading for Panama and he told me about the spot which is pretty cool and I needed a spot to catch up on some sleep after some cold and uncommforatble nights.

    Next Stop - La Paz for the expensive ferry to the Mainland.

    The RRR Team have hit Canada, and it has been an amazing experience. Although it is hard to believe that people could be more supportive and generous than they have been up to here, Cnaadians have been absolutely fantastic support, and extremely generous.

    The Motorcycle Ride for Dad is a fantastic charity, organised and effective at spreading the word, and have been a pleasure to work with. I hope to take the model they have here to Australia - watch this space.

    We made it to Russia safe and sound. They don't use the Carnet for international registration here in Russia, so we were able to roll on to the ferry from Japan, but not off the ferry into Korsakov, Russia. Bizarre system, but even after everyone we met at the ferry company and even on the ferry telling us it was impossible to organize without an agent we pushed on. We met a couple of Italian Bikers on their way to Japan on new XTZ Tenere's, which pretty much explained why the CEO of Yamaha in Australia stopped emailing us about a possible sponsorship opportunity.
    We have met a bunch of Russian guys who are driving to Mongolia in their 4WD so we are hanging out with them for a few days. They all speak perfect English (which is unusual in Russia) and are top fellas. Forget what you might think about Russia, at least for the far east anyway, people here are extremely friendly and hospitable, it is clean and organized and easy to get around (although we did hit about 100km of road works in the rain yesterday which was a little uncomfortable). Our RJ's gear is keeping us dry and warm, but by the time we arrived in Khabarovsk our hands and feet did look we had fallen asleep in a warm bath.
    About 600km of terrible dirt roads in the rain and some pretty good hwy and we are in Ulan Ude, Visa in hand and ready to hit Mongolia.

    Lost in Translation

    Saturday, August 15th, 2009 [11:22:34 PM]
    posted by Simon Buckley

    The last few days have been hectic for the RideRightRound team (I know there is only two of us, but I wanted to make it sound a little more epic!). Things had to work like clockwork for us to get from Osaka on the 10th to Wakkani on the 13th with a stopover in Sapporo to pick up tires. I skipped seeing Linda, a cousin living in Japan and anyone else to make it up in two days. 20 000Y in tolls and a 9000y ferry ride later , we rolled into town at 2.30am. We headed to a hotel to sleep as we were both exhausted. We arrived at 12pm to check in for the 3.30pm ferry. As it turns out, although we thought we booked a ferry at 330pm, there is only one at 10am, when we were asleep in a hotel about 400m from where the boat left without us. You can imagine how frustrating it was, all that work and a little misunderstanding with times and we get to spend 5 days in the nth tip of japan on a national holiday weekend when everything is closed!

    The next ferry isn't for 5 days, because of the holiday, but we are staying at a free campground just by town, so it isn't the expense that is the killer, it is the time. On a positive note, everything will be 100% when we step on to the ferry on the 18th

    We will arrive on the ferry to Sakhalin on the 18th, the Mainland on the 19th/20th and that will give just under a month to get across Russia 9000km, some dirt roads in Mongolia, but possible without being crazy. An average of 300km a day- all depends on the roads and whether there are any issues with the bikes. I am really keen to see my folks in Germany! (SB)

    As the title implies, we have struck a minor hurdle here in Japan, our mobile phones don't work.

    While we have had little trouble getting around, finding internet and doing the tourist thing, we have discovered that the Japanese have there very own special network that doesn't allow a standard GSM phone to connect.

    Lucky for eKit we can still get network service in Japan, but by accident we packed all our eKit equipment with our motorcycles for shipping. In a few days we will have them back and all will be OK.

    So for the moment, all communications must be done via email and our leave a message service.

    Shipping, Flying and Waiting

    posted by Todd Barry

    After a 2 week tour through Cambodia and Laos, we are back in Bangkok organising ourselves for the journey to Japan and Russia. We still need to do the final paperwork for shipping but we have dropped the bikes off and are being crated as I type this report.

    From the time we dropped off the bikes until the time they hit Japan will be around 2 1/2 weeks so we have a little time to kill, the invitation letter for Russia also takes 15 business days (3 weeks) so we must wait for things to happen.

    We have spent a great deal of time researching our options for cheap places to spend our time but unfortuntely flights are all expensive reguardless of where we go, Japan is also not so cheap so we are not too keen to spend our time waiting there.

    So for now we will keep researching and hope to find a solution soon... we'll keep you posted.

    Taking a Break in Bali

    Monday, June 1st, 2009 [04:23:29 PM]
    posted by Todd Barry

    After leeaving Dili (Timor Leste) we headed for Bali, a 4 day ride with 4 ferry trips. The ride through Indonesia was tiring with windy roads and speeding trucks, busses and motorbikes often on the wrong side of the road, a 200km journey takes around 5 hours as the average speed you can travel at is around 40km/h most of the time with a few sections of good straight road where you can get up to 80km/h.

    We did the hard yards from Labuhanbajo where after a night in a cheep hotel 80,000rp (less than $10 AUD) for 2. We got up early and headed down to the ferry terminal and caught the first of 3 ferries in succession that would eventually get us tired and sleepless to Bali in 2 days.

    A Lap Around Timor Leste

    Tuesday, May 26th, 2009 [03:06:44 PM]
    posted by Todd Barry

    Well after finally receiving our motorcycles a week late, on Thursday 21st of May we set off on a four day journey around Timor-Leste to explore the eastern end of the Island Nation. The roads were to say the least rough and at times were just a space between tree's, the harsh effects of the wet season taking their toll on what was once a sealed road.

    But bad roads asside we really had a great time, it was an off road motorcyclists dream and was a great opportunity to test out the bikes on something other than tar. They handled reasonably well considering the gear they carry and got us back in one piece.

    While touring the Island we had the opportunity to stop over at an Echo Hotel near Ossu, the Echo Village Hotel (formerly Timor Village Hotels) was a fantastic spot to stop and rest but not for long as the local historic cave is not far away and required a bit of hike to reach the entrance, well worth the effort though.

    All I can say is if you are looking for that undiscovered less travelled tourist destination, get your buts on a plane to Timor-Leste (East Timor) and check it out, while the conditions here are not five star, the people are friendly and there's never a feeling that you are unsafe, the fighting stopped long ago and the country is in a period of rebuilding and growth.

    Well after a very long wait the Perkins ship has arrived in port and as I write this post, the ship is being unloaded. By the end of the day we should have our bikes and the rest of our gear we have spent the past week waiting on.

    Before leaving to tour Timor Leste we have been asked by the Timor Minestry to Exhibit our bikes at the Timor Leste International Expo for a day, on Wednesday it is a national holiday and impossible to get anywhere so come Thursday morning we will depart Dili to tour the island of Timor Leste and document our travels before heading into Indonesia.

    Bikes Stuck in Darwin

    Friday, May 15th, 2009 [06:46:16 PM]
    posted by Todd Barry

    Our plans for 3 days in Darwin were foiled by paperwork and the time it takes to get parts sent and so we spent 2 weeks instead. Now we are in Dili in Timor-Lest (East Timor) and were expecting the same, we flew out on Saturday and were expecting to have the bikes Wednesday or Thursday after clearing customs, yesterday we recieved the bad news, the barge that we put the bikes on in Darwin has broken down, now once again we have to wait.

    The boat was scheduled to leave Darwin on Monday but has broken down, after speaking with Perkins the shipping agent we have been informed that it may leave on Saturday or Sunday night, one week late, after a 2 day journey to Dili we may get the bikes by Tuesday or Wednesday.

    So for now we wait and hope that they will arrive soon, on a 13 month journey we have now lost a month. A huge set back it may mean we have less time to visit other places and spend time there.

    We'll keep you posted....

    Well we are now officially Darwin locals, having spent a couple of weeks here, we have been introduced properly to Darwin Life and Darwin Culture. People laugh when they see the 'NT' post cards with the slogans 'Not Today, Not Tomorrow' but it's fairdinkum true, being so far away from the rest of Australia has it's bonuses but it also has it's draw backs, one of which is the time it takes to get anything from somewhere else to Darwin, overnight freight is great example as Overnight to and from Darwin takes 2 days (Overnight??). But none the less we are enjoying the warm weather up here while those down south rug up to the winter cold.

    Leaving Oz
    We will say our final goodbyes to Australia next week, the bikes go on the boat on Wednesday and we fly to Timor Leste (East Timor) on the following Saturday to meet the bikes before heading to Indonesia and into South East Asia where the adventure begins.

    En route to Sydney we spent the first night in Albury (thanks Beckles) after three hours testing the weatherproof abilities of our RJays gear. There is nothing quite like riding a motorbike at night in torrential rain, doing your best to avoid interstate trucks.

    We stopped at Circular Quay to get some photos of the bikes and gear with some well known Australian icons (a great spot with the Sydney Harbour Bridge on one side and the Opera House on the other). It was there where we got our first tastes of fame, with people commenting that they had seen our TV show, and how good it was. There were a few who asked us for photos and a few in the distance. Not too sure which of us was supposed to be McGregor and which one was Borman, or where the camera crew and support team were but a good laugh.

    Well things are continuing to grow and gather speed but we still need your support!

    We have had some excellent responses from supporters and sponsors with RJays providing us with motorcycle clothing including Tour-Tech Helmets and their Evo Jacket and Pants.

    We visited the Moto GP at Phillip Island and met with some really positive people who are extremely keen to help out and we look forward to working on the relationship between them and the project.

    On route to the GP we had an amazing and unforgetable ride surrounded by riders and motorcycles of every walk of life. The atmosphere was buzzing and it was evident that everyone was there to enjoy such a gathering, something we also hope to achieve with our project as we traverse the globe.

    I (Todd) hope to have our Newsletter hot off the press very soon so watch out for it in your inbox. The process has taken some time and the two of us are juggling our work commitments with the work of the project.

    We still need your help in any way shape or form, if at the least spread the word about what we are doing. Keep coming back to the site and stay tuned for future updates and news on the riderightround...

    The publicity train has left the proverbial station, and things are really rolling now. The departure date is set for April 1st 2009, and there is still a lot of work to do.

    The focus of the campaign is Awareness. I am looking to regional prostate cancer support groups, cancer organisations and research groups to get behind me and use the RideRightRound as a tool to drive awareness in their local area. As I go from place to place, I give the local community a reason to talk about prostate cancer.

    I am putting together a 'road show' with a presentation on the RideRightRound project and prostate cancer in general which I will be able to deliver en route, but I need the support of locals to get bums on seats to see it, and to take advantage of the opportunity to engage the community in the name of cancer support.On the home front, I am working hard to engage media in the project. Q Radio will have an interview with yours truly chatting about the trip, so if you are flying QANTAS after September 2008, flick through the channels and you will catch my 'radio voice'.

    I will be undertaking an extensive PR campaign including Media, Door to Door, Publicity and email campaign, all designed to drive visitation to the Website, and in turn to PCFA website. Regular updates en route, as well as lecture, photo and media opportunities will be communicated through the network. The major aims are awareness and support of the work of PCFA. Awareness is to be measured by website visitation and message board, and support by donations to the charity. For more information on the work by PCFA visit www.prostate.com.au

    Why PCFA?
    The PCFA 'Be a Man' campaign is about men facing up to their responsibilities. My trip, similarly, is about facing the unknown and showing that it can be overcome. That what can be seen as a huge and insurmountable challenge can be overcome by facing up to it head on, with carefully planned and organised approach. I want to encourage Men to face up to their responsibilities, and aid in awareness that the issues exist.
