Holy crap, what a race!
Plenty of stories from this one, but the only one worth telling right now is that we finally finished a FULL expedition length race as a ranked team, what a feeling!!
It was like a wildlife safari out there, we came across five snakes, one, a red belly black snake is one of the deadliest in the world, had a dolphin swim between our kayaks, noticed a black tipped reef shark shortly before we commenced a snorkel section, nearly biked into a kangaroo, not to mention seeing wallabies, a bilby, and a goana.
I think there was more, but am still in a bit of a haze with everything. We have an incredible condo rented out for the next five days and are just preparing a sweet BBQ dinner before hitting up the backpacker town of Airlie Beach. It will be awhile before I get updates and such on here, but we have almost 20 minutes of video of the race as well.
Awesome time so far...it will be hard to return home in a week...if I did not have my dog at home waiting I might have decided to get a bartending job and hang out for a few months!
