Spirit of Tasmania

I’m now booked for my journey on the Spirit of Tasmania, across Bass Strait, from Melbourne to Devonport.  I’m glad I did it last night as there were few bookings available.  I had tried before, but found it a little challenging so backed out.

Last night, despite some hiccups, I managed to book so I have that sorted.  I was going to spend a few days in Melbourne before I went on the Spirit of Tasmania, but now will drive from Sale and go straight onto the Spirit.

Here is some info about the Spirit of Tasmania

“MS Spirit of Tasmania II is a super fast ropax ferry owned by TT-Line Pty. Ltd. and operated on the route between Melbourne and Devonport. She was built in 1998 by Kvaerner Masa-Yards Turku in Finland for Superfast Ferries as MS Superfast III. Wikipedia
Length: 194 m
Draft: 6.55 m
Completed: 1998″

The Spirit of Tasmania

I have my sea sick tablets too.  That is one of the things that I will worry about.  It is often a rough trip, and I am not good with sea travel so I am prepared.  I did not book a bed, but a recliner chair.  I’ll take a blanket and hope I manage it.

One of my tasks over the next few days is to list places I want to visit in Tasmania and now I have my dates for being there I can book accommodation.

Today is my last day to get organised and I will pack the car, and hopefully be ready to set off early tomorrow morning.

I will go via Kilcoy, Esk, and so avoid the city.  It does add a few kms but also avoids any tolls and peak hour Monday traffic, so I am all set with that.

I am still having a few challenges with the GPS in the car, but even if I can’t get it perfect yet, I have enough to do what I want to do.  I know the way, mostly.  It is just within a city/town where I am seeking a specific address that I may be challenged, and of course I have my phone GPS for that.

Ready, set, go.
