September 16th - Landcruiser arrival in Mumbai

I've just looked on the Hapag Lloyd website to see when they are delivering my car to Mumbai. The container is scheduled for delivery to NHAVA SHEVA, the principal port of Mumbai, today. Let's hope that's correct! This coming Thursday it will be trucked from the port into the warehouse in central Mumbai.

With just over two weeks to go until we fly out, our final preparations are taking place. We have received from HERO a complete set of waypoints and tracks, via e-mail and these have now been downloaded onto my Garmin navigator, a total of over 400 waypoints and 18 tracks. This should make our navigation much easier as we travel around India. The Indian road maps are not particularly detailed, so having a route for the tour downloaded onto the Garmin will really help.

We've heard that the monsoon weather is late this year, so there is a good chance of heavy showers when we start the tour. I just hope it's not too bad and the monsoon ends quickly, as I really don't fancy driving through floods as we head off!
