WHERE ARE WE?

Click on the link to maps.google.com in the latest post and follow our progress.

A message sent in the evening means we have been paddling and have reached a new place. A message sent in the morning means we are staying put.

If there is no SPOT message for a few days do not panic! SPOT is new technology and a glitch or two may happen. We have loads of back-up with VHF radios and EPIRB.



Comments

The links are at the end of the Spot message for the day. To read the comments: click on the Comment link. To leave a comment: click on the Envelope. They even answer some of them!!

Google Maps puts this lat/long about 10km on dry land... Did you get tired of the ocean??? :-)

Ok, now when I look at the satellite image on Google Maps, I see you're exploring an inlet of some sort, about 10km in from the ocean... Correct???
