Day 0 (July 29, 2005):

Athens to Patras, to take that familiar Minoan Lines ferry to Ancona... (235km)

Two days before we left, however, I stumbled upon some problem! A small one, but what are friends for, right?! So, what I did was strip the threads of one of the four mounting points of the protective aluminum sumpguard, when I tried to remove it for an oil change.
No problem! A call to my friend Andreas had him tap new threads (lying besides the GS, while Epi watches!). In fact we decided to leave the sumpguard and cylinder protecting rails off for this trip, just in case!

Two days later, we arrived at Patra, ready to embark on the ship in the background for Ancona...

the real trip starts here, however!
