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.

Doug and Jonathan love the fact that so many of you are following their progress but they also enjoy reading your comments when they have access to the internet. 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!!

It has been great fun to follow your progress!

If you guys need a place to shower and sleep in Victoria, just let me know :)

Hi Darren. Thanks for the offer. In fact we are bypassing Victoria as we have pulled over in Sooke for a couple of days with family who have travelled down to meet us. Jonathan
