Managed to get everything in the box!

Three days to the off and the final kit list comprises of over 200 separate items which include:
Water purification system
Solar panels
Indicators & brake light
Stereo music system
Short wave radio
CB Radio
Sat Nav
Cooking stove (64 grammes)
Magnet LED’s
Exped Downmat (withstands minus 45 degree ground temperature)
900 gram two skin tent
Electronic alarm
Three sleeping bags (Down, Silk & Synthetic)
Desert & Arctic clothing
Vehicle – 30 kg
Kit – 15 kg

Well after a day and a half Rob Watson - the new Breen Machine production manager, finally got the whole lot into one standard bicycle box and another small box for the fibreglass/Kevlar pod. Phill's idea of cutting it in half to make it even smaller I thought was not very funny especially as Rob initially thought he was serious!
Let's hope that BA stick by their word and transport it free!
Carolien visited yesterday but unfortunately I was out. She left some stickers for her charity and I will try to raise awareness during my travels. Please visit her websiteand I hope that you can help in some way also.
