Big News

Well, the news is now out to all friends, family and employers, so we may as well put it here as well.

Starting January 1, 2015 we are taking our 1987 Volkswagen Westfalia (Lucky) on a long drive down to the southern most tip of South America.  We expect to be gone for over a year.

We have been preparing a long time for this and will be updating the blog on those preparations in the coming weeks.

The closest water feature to this spot is about 4 km away, at Glenmore Reservoir. There are only office buildings, aging shopping centres, and high density housing complexes nearby.
