Yeah - I signed up for the GTBR today. My parents are doing the ride as well, so I just hope that mum stays out of my hair, and doesn't boss me around!!!
I think taking two tents - one for parents, and a small one for me, is the way to go!
We haven't decided how we'll get to Tassie yet - probably bikes with BV, and fly both ways.
I also don't know how quickly I need to get back to Melbourne after the ride - hopefully I'll know by the end of January.
I like the look of the GTBR jersey, but I haven't got it. Besides, I'd need to go into the BV office to try on sizes!
