Hi Joe. Are Neil and Pat still down that way (Cloud 9)?... Selling!? That'll be a hard thing to do! Cheers.We are in Peru right now, on our way to Bolivia next week. The truck will be back in North America in the fall then up for sale.
The cushions we had made in Ottawa by an upholsterer before we left. All the woodwork done by myself.
We did have quite a bit of mechanical work done in Chile that had needed to be done for a while. Labor is considerably cheaper down here.
Good to hear all is good. Thought you'd gone quiet! Hope the truck is safe. How are you coping with UK life having been away for so long? I was there last Aug, and couldn't get out soon enough! Re the barge/houseboat Joe917, that sounds good... A very different pace of life! Neil, I recon you're right. Didn't Rick Stein do that trip on a wide beam dutch barge? All the way from the UK to the Med via canal... Limited UK use tho as I think its only the Grand Union and Kennet and Avon Canal that are 'wide beam' canals. Poss only a 60 foot max length too... Enjoy!Hi guys. We are still alive. We are currently back in the UK taking a break. Friends, family stuffs etc.
Our truck is in Lima Peru. We will be heading back in a month or so to continue north towards Ecuador and Columbia .
Not posted much for a while but still follow you all with enthusiasm.
The houseboat/ barge idea sounds fantastic. Someone told me that you can navigate from the north French coast to the south by canal. Cant verify this but it sounds feasible.
I love exciting new plans.
Our last adventure before we came back to the UK was Galapagos. We are still dining out on that.
