L-7 one week to go :mrgreen:
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it

The car is now half packed. Looking into that statement in more detail means half the stuff is packed, but the car is already full :)

Time to move more stuff to the roof rack. I might put the sleeping bags and clothes on the top of the car and keep the rockets nice and dry. Sounds like a good plan. Just don't tell my wife...

We are departing early Sunday morning.

To Everyone going, have a safe trip! See you up there.

I've packed everything, the rocket fits into two cardboxes plus one part of a duffle bag.
Chauffeur drive is scheduled for 16:45 CET and the plane door should close about 20:15.

Uff!

Kiwis ready to fly. Boxes of rockets are in Brisbane waiting for us, first plane loads arriving Tuesday and the majority landing Wednesday.

Everything is sliding into its place ☺️
