After two car rides, a bus trip, five airplanes and a whole lot of hauling our stuff around airports we made it safely to our home for the nonce, which is lovingly referred to as The Farm. We’ve been adjusting to life here, warm and wet as it has been, for the past few days. Lots of rain, but we’ve already enjoyed some fun surfs and are relaxing into life spent mostly outdoors, in the ocean or listening to the gurgle of the creek that we sleep next to.
When we finally had our board bag weighed in the Sydney airport we found that it weighed about 105 pounds. That’s about 26 pounds more than they allow in any one bag, so we had to take as much stuff out as possible and stuff it into a big plastic bag to be loaded separately.
