  • Bullitt and Rayzurheds epic road trip in Tasmania

    Well it has begun! ;D
    Our journey has begun- we have left Burnie and are heading for Hobart- 3 and half hours away. Our mission-
    Firstly- find a powerpoint on the way so we can set up Silvia and Rocky and experience our freshly roasted coffee instead of any swill that might be about. 8-)
    Secondly - to make it to Island Espresso before they shut! >
    Third- To participate in the Hobart training day at Baristacrats.
    Fourth- To meet the mystery guest who we assume is less than a demigod, but pretty special. :

    Stay tuned- more info and photos to come...

    We are now in Hobart, only took us 4 and half hours :
    Our first objective took a bit of finding,
    no power point at Paramatta Creek, nor at Westbury, but joy at Campbell town, there was tow outlets on the back of the toilet block in the park
    A number of other travellers were fascinated when we got Rocky and Silvia out and plugged them in and made a couple of quick shots ,
    we have photos to verify and will be able to upload them later.

    Anyhow we did enjoy the real coffee, but next time we might pack a small picnic table instead of working on the ground.

    Our second objective was looking promising when we managed to find a parking spot right in front of the best coffee shop in Hobart, until I got out of the car to find that it was shut
    However we could smell the un-mistakeable aroma of coffee beans being roasted, and a short phone call later we were in contact with Dane.
    Oh-migosh is that the time, :-?to be continued......

      Whats this? A Coffee Road Trip? Cool! Cant wait for the pics guys.

      Heres a tip. If youre looking for power outlets, try the nearest town showground! There are generally a few about there...

            PROLOGUE
            Yeah I know its out of sequence, but brought on by "silly oclock" and caffeine induced inability to sleep .

            This epic road trip report is unashamedly inspired by Java-whos got a middle name for everything-philes Epic road trip in search of his roaster.

            Oh and since we are now in the daylight saving time zone, its really silly oclock plus one hour.

            Stay tuned, we have lots more to report.

            Bullitt - who doesnt have a middle name.... :P

                    Its a bit exciting....

                    Day is fineing up slowly. Brewtus has relocated to the training room (aka garage). Milk and water flow freely in the training room fridge.

                    Lunch is prepared, vacuum is humming, camera is charged, heading out to the airport to retrieve the 2mcm in a wee while, and hope he isnt too jet lagged!!

                    Somewhere, out there, in Hobart, Bullitt (without a middle name) and RH (without any name) are getting ready to reach the mid point of their road trip......lugging silvia and rocky up the steepest street in Hobart  ;D  ;D  ;D

                    To be continued....

                      Have a great day, all of you. Its a pity there arent a few more people in my area so we could organise something similar.

                        Back track yesterday...
                        Island Espresso was shut, but the smell of roasting beans drove us down the alley to the source and Mikes call to Dane was quickly met with him ushering us in to coffee nivarna... ;D
                        4 or 5 shots later and over 2 hours- we were inspired, energised and pumped for the remainder of the drive to Kingston for the night.  :
                        Its amazing how little sleep you get when youve consumed too much excellent coffee around 7pm.
                        Lots of photos to be loaded tomorrow- probably.
