Gentle and patient readers. Several times in recent weeks, I have begun crafting a new post only to find myself once again sidetracked by the dizzying and often brutal crescendo of this tour's homestretch.
It's been a hell of a run, but following the conclusion of one last doubleheader here in Adelaide yesterday, the end has officially arrived, and tomorrow morning begins the long trip back "home." Whatever that means.
As one of our drivers put it the other day, "it's a bloody big country, mate," and far too much of the past two and a half months has been spent criss-crossing it on a bus. Thanks to all for hanging in there during the ensuing silence, but normal blogging operations should resume shortly.
