sydney – day one of the trip: thursday 27th september

it’s friday morning, i’m at wizdm’s pad and i’ve got a few minutes so i thought i’d give a brief rundown of yesterday:
up early {5am} with the family at home on the gold coast- enjoying the antics of my boys {drummond eating yogurt and deliberately smearing it around his face}. we leave the house at 7:15am to the airport….

get the Virgin flight DJ504 at 8:55am to sydney, where my main man Mistery picks me up, we check out some new krosswerdz banners he has had made and then have lunch at his parents place in Petersham. He drops me at wizdm’s place around 1pm.

had a great time catching up with wiz, even better was the fact hoodsta kidd came on down and hung out listening/buying some new wizdm beats… good times…

at the end of a busy day we watch Spiderman 3 – wiz had just bought it on DVD and i haven’t seen it yet – let me just say that it was not great. the best review of spider man 3 is this awesome video on youtube.

heading south

in about 7 hours or so i’ll get up {around 6am} and climb in the trusty old station wagon and drive down south solo….
i’ll do the 10 or 12 hours behind the wheel and get to sydney.
i’ll be in and around sydney for the weekend.
doing a shoot for the mistery solo album.
doing a shoot for the wizdm solo album.
doing a lovely family shoot.
speaking at krosswerdz hip-hop church.
catching up with the blackstump team.
going to Dominic Kelsall’s 30th birthday.
catching up with lots of good friends, doing business and picking up a set of post office boxes that i scored a while ago and have been sitting in wizdm’s garage.
{main reason i am taking the expensive way & driving down}

i have made the trip from the gold coast to sydney so many times i couldn’t count it.
and a lot of those trips have been solo trips.
i think this trip will be my last ever solo trip.
i usually fly and hire a car, {the only way to do it, also the cheapest} but also there is the family factor, and any big trips in the future will be family trips and holidays…
so here’s to what i hope will be my last ever solo road trip!
{i’ll try and update from the trip, at the very least there will be some twitter updates!}

long time no post……..

it’s been busy.

and tonight i go on my last out of state trip for the year.
i promise i won’t be going anywhere till 2007.
i’ll be in sydney thursday, friday and canberra on saturday and back home sunday afternoon.

in the meantime here is the last 45 days in 13 pictures…
