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!!

Hi Tom and Nancy

One of our most treasured memories is coming to Esperanza and staying with you all. You have a very special place there (I know you know this) and I am sure that both Doug and I will find our separate ways back. Thanks again for you kindness and hospitality

It was so good to have been able to spend time with you and Ziggy on Prevost. What a great little hike.

Now....buy that Explorer.
