I must admit, with pressures of getting the bike ready, my work and a very sick uncle, this was the first time in several months that I was feeling excited about my trip.
I found the customs office, completed all the paper work giving me clearance to have the bike released and headed over to the FedEx building in the distance. It was a fair old walk but I had a real spring in my step with the excitement of getting my bike just moments away.

It was not long once I got to the FedEx building that Lisa bought out my bike in its crate to the parking lot where I proceeded to remove the top of the crate to reveal my shrink wrapped bike below.
After a few issues were overcome, I had my bike off the crate and I was riding out of the parking lot with a beaming smile on my face.
