You're looking in the wrong place if you really want someone to talk you out of this.

Wish I could do something like that...I've been wanting to circle OZ by some form or another for the past five years! Have fun with it.

Travelpunk is that shouting down that voice in your head that tells you not to do stuff like this

Sounds great man. The Aussies I met while backpacking were cool as hell.

Sounds like a fun trip. I would go to Oz and bike around. But at this very moment, I am a slave to academics. When will I ever be done?

jake sudz and myself and a few others are good for bike advice, but be careful if you talk about it to much. one of us is liable to come with you
