Day 1 - Sunday 6 May 2012

Hobart to Devonport

After completing all the final checks of the van we hitched up and departed at 12:15 pm. The weather was cool with some sun. We stopped on the way for lunch at the Ross Bakery, and arrived at the Esplanade at East Devonport at about 4:00 pm to wait for the ferry to start boardingat 5:00 pm. Once boarding started we had to go and find the end of the queue as there were a lot of vehicles returning to the Mainland after Agfest. We were finally on the truck deck by 7:00 pm and the ferry departed on time at 7:30 pm, by which time we were having a QLD - it being well past beer o'clock.

The weather forecast for Bass Strait was 20 knot winds with 3 metre swells, which meant a smooth crossing.
