Au revoir!

So, on the eve of my departure for adventures in foreign lands, a few notes of interest...

First, I am not bringing my laptop with me, so I expect updates from the road will be sporadic. If anything, stuff will first show up as photos over on my Flickr photostream.

Second, a few dates! The actual Paris-Brest-Paris will start on Sunday, August 16. My start time is 6:15 pm. Somewhere on the Paris-Brest-Paris website, there will be rider tracking. We're all going to get chipped, and they'll be swiping our chips at the Controles. My frame badge number is K158 - hopefully that's sufficient to enable remote internet stalking by interested parties. If not, comment amongst yourself in the comments!

For note, here are the Controles, distances, and "opening" and "closing" times (time windows when I might be present; generally much closer to the closing time than opening time). I've put tentative estimates of when I should depart in brackets at the end.

Km 0 Saint-Quentin-En-Yvelines Opening 8/16 6:15 pm [6:15 pm]

Km 865 Tinteniac Opening 8/18 1:43 am Closing 8/19 8:57 am [6:30 am]
Km 919 Fougeres Opening 8/18 4:12 am Closing 8/19 1:08 pm [10:42 am]
Km 1008 Villaines-La-Juhel Opening 8/18 8:15 am Closing 8/19 7:59 pm [5:58 pm]
Km 1089 Mortagne-Au-Perche Opening 8/18 12:18 pm Closing 8/20 1:53 am [1:50 am]
Km 1166 Dreux Opening 8/18 4:10 pm Closing 8/20 7:29 am [7:04 am]
Km 1230 Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines Opening 8/18 6:15 pm Closing 8/20 12:15

A version of the route out is here (there is a possible deviation and alternate route for one leg, but this gives you an idea).
And the route back is very similar.

Other than that, I'll be roaming around, taking plenty of photos, and enjoying all there is to experience over the course of adventures in foreign countries. I'll be hauling along the Smart-o-Phone, so I might post brief tappity-tap updates to LJ sporadically, but no guarantees.

Don't have too much fun without me!
