All systems go...I think!

It's been a long couple of days...

The beginning of the journey is just a few hours away, yet questions of "are you packed yet?" are likely to be met with an exasperated "not yet" from me. Having dragged equipment round for concerts and video shoots the past couple days, I have to say the first thing on my mind is spending some hard earned quiet time with a cup of tea.

Still, the site is all up and running and I'm looking forward to putting all the technology to the test tomorrow. With any luck, you'll be hearing from me again sometime after 7 tomorrow morning, from London St Pancras, the first point of the journey. I'll then try and post at fairly regular intervals along the way, keeping the GPS trace on the map updated at the same time (it should appear as a red wiggly line). See you all then!
