In June 2005 Jason was joined by newcomer Lourdes
Arango for a 450 NM pedal in Moksha from Darwin, Northern Australia
to Dili in East Timor. At this point Moksha's builder and veteran
of the Tarawa to Solomon's crossing Christopher Tipper and ex-Coral
Sea campaigner April joined in to make up a 4-person team to kayak
and bike the 3,000 miles up the island archipelago to Singapore.
The entire journey took 6-months, arriving in
Singapore November 17th after a near catastrophic first attempt
to cross the Straits of Singapore in which one of the kayaks capsized
in rough seas, depositing the 2-person crew in a 6-knot tidal stream
and in the middle of the world's busiest shipping lane! Managing
to avoid passing supertankers, thanks mainly to the cool head of
the support craft skipper (thank goodness we had one this time...)
all souls were saved and lived to tell the tales.
