Final Preparations! t-3 dAYS
Things are getting real now!
After spending the holidays with family in The Aveyron and enjoying some sunshine and warm temperatures on the French coast, we're back at our base here in the Aveyron and really studying the map, preparing for our departure to Oman on Sunday.
We checked over our bicycles last week, visited the local Decathlon store to get ourselves some parts, gear and a tent.
Due to the cold climates at home, we only have 4 season tents. In a country where it is hot, these 4 season tents have no adequate ventilation. For our two weeks in the heat, we have opted for the cheapest little dome tent we could find, it's not supposed to rain anyway, right?! This is the Arpenaz fresh and black, around $75 Cad. from Decathlon. This will be our home during the trip.
Before leaving Canada, during preparations, Philippe hurt himself. While removing the trailer from the car, it slid on the ice in the direction of our solar panels. Trying to restrain the trailer from sliding, philippe got dragged along and broke his hand in the process.
Due to the fact that we're travelling with a child, we have to consider our routes in Oman carefully, adding an adult with some booboos, is bringing us back to the map.
We have decided to see on the spot which direction we'll go. We do know that we will be starting from Nizwa. and go from there.
