Well, today has been a long day!!! It actually started with a 20 hour flight from LAX to Perth, Western Australia. After a stop over in Brisbane, where i got a complete search because the drug sniffer dog "had a different reaction" when he walked by me than most people, i was allowed to get on my next flight and head to Perth for the Safari. My plane rolled up to the gate at 12pm and by 12.15 i was on my way to the Safari HQ.
What a set up these guys throw together. WiFi, competitor greeting packs that include shirts, hats, a cooler, a bottle of wine and numerous other goodies. Every night the whole shebang gets packed up and moved down the road, along with the mess tent, WiFi system, medical center and staff.
Today was the start of scrutineering and me getting to know the people i will be travelling with for the next 8 days.
All in all it was a great day to get acquaited with the set up, shake some hands and take some photo's. The jet lag has started to kick in tonight so after i upload this and check my all important FaceBook I will be hitting the hay at "Safari Village", yes they have set up a small village, and trying to catch some zzzzzz's for tomorrow.
