The 2009 Kids in Tow Tour

The 2009 Kids in Tow Tour is almost upon us and I know that there is one burning question on your collective minds:

How will it affect us, the reading public of 6000 miles…?

It wouldn’t be right if, like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown, I didn’t put you out of your misery, so here’s the deal as I see it.

  1. I am not guaranteeing a post every day, although I’ll certainly try. If you want to know when a new post is up, you can follow @6000 on twitter or better still, you can subscribe to the 6000 miles… RSS feed.
  2. Comments may take longer to get through moderation. Sorry and all that. Of course, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t comment, but I’m going to be on holiday, chasing my boy around a beach and generally drinking red wine and beer. Pretty similar to life in Cape Town then, but a slightly different beach.
  3. There will be plenty of photo action. Not least (I hope) with my new camera. Those photos will go onto my flickr and I will let you know when they are going up there. Some (if not more) will probably make it onto the blog as quota photos anyway.
  4. It’s possible that I won’t be reading your blogs as often as usual. Don’t hold it against me – I will try to catch up when I get back. However, SA blogs will be my main link with the Saffa world while I’m away, so please keep me informed of developments. (Or lack of them, if that stadium-building strike begins to bite.)

And that’s pretty much it. We fly tomorrow, Kids in Tow and, anticipating un jour ‘ectique, I’ve already pre-published a special KiTT send off post, which will appear here at 1800 CAT (or some other time, if I got my time zones mixed up) tomorrow.  That post may appear mildly trivial (although reading it now, rather prophetic) if there happens to be a nuclear holocaust between now and then; but then you probably won’t be reading it if there’s a nuclear holocaust between now and then, will you?

I leave you with the ever popular Simple Minds 1985 hit Don’t You (Forget About Me); firstly, because I love songs (with brackets in the title) and secondly, because I’m gonna miss you guys. *sniffle*


Listen to Jim:

Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don’t You Forget About Me
Don’t Don’t Don’t Don’t
Don’t You Forget About Me

See you soon!

  1. Ooh 6000 will be touching down in the UK, but does that mean you will be 0 miles now? Can we call you 0?

    I hope you havee a good trip, the weather is pretty good at this precise second.
    .-= po´s last blog ..Si si si siesta =-.

  2. Don’t eat to many Greggs pasties & bring me back some Fray Bentos Steak & Ale & Chicken Curry.. Ta 😉

  3. Bloody hell 6k! You’re off to the UK, not Zimbabwe! Even in Australia we have free internet in every McDonalds, Starbucks, library and half the shopping centres in Melbourne.

    No excuses please we’re NOT British!


    Have a good time. We’ll miss you too!

  4. DW > I plan to eat far too many Gregg’s pasties. Mmm. Fray Bentos. Uruguay’s finest.

    Emil > Thank you!

    Delboy > Actually only spending 4 days in the UK and then heading out elsewhere. Somewhere perhaps arguably more… “pleasantly backward” than SA.

  5. Oh yes! You gonna look through JC’s lighthouse windows!! Get orf my laand!! 😉

  6. DW > Indeed. Which makes me think – I wonder if his wireless interwebs is secure? A post from JC’s server would be cool.

  7. I would imagine its sewn up tighter than a gnats chuff.. BTW add some Gingsters Cornish pasties to my order for guessing correctly.. 😉
