Thanks to Lachlan Beed at Kite Works in Newcastle, we don't have to worry about hours and hours of blood, sweat and tears behind the sewing machine making our custom joining tent vestibule for our two tents - that will be for Lach to do!
He has generously offered his capable skills on the sewing machine to whip us up a mighty fine vestibule, complete with access zips from within the tent. This guy is seriously good on the machine. We got our hands on a 19 meter kiteboarding kite a while back - the only problem was that it had recently been dragged over rocks and other such nasties and was actually in 3 pieces and basically torn to shreds. We took the kite to Lach and he had us up and flying in a couple of days! Hence our trust in him to cut holes and zips in our tent...
Check out his site its got some good stuff on kiteboarding!
In July 2005, two young Aussies Chris Bray and Clark Carter plunged inside the Arctic Circle to travel unsupported across Victoria Island, the world's ninth largest and largely unexplored island. After 58 days of hauling, paddling and dragging 250kgs of gear behind them in their home-made aluminium kayaks with fold-down wheels, they were only 1/3 the way across! It was such an incredible adventure though - including wolves, polar bears, artefacts, blizzards and unseen landscapes - that they vowed to return. After two years of prep, The iiNet 1000 Hour Day Expedition set of in 2008, and finished what they started.
