Peru.

We have now been in Peru for about 5 weeks and it has been an amazing place with great people.

I think we could be here some time.

We have visited Cusco, Machu Piccu, Nasca lines and Inca remains.

Our lates blog is now available http://www.cloud9ontour.com

We have recently spent some time with two other couples travelling through the desert ( safety in numbers ) One of them created this short video that you may enjoy.

If there isnt a drone in my Christmas stocking this year there could be trouble.

Neil / Pat,

An inspiring blog and hats off to you both for getting to Machu Picchu, it just looks awesome.

I'm with you Neil, I think the drone is rapidly becoming an inevitable addition to my other bits of kit.

They are getting lighter, better batteries, therefore longer range and flight time. On top of that, the cameras are better and better quality. They are also coming down in price which helps.

Wadders.

Neil,

It would very useful and informative if you were able to put down a list of failures/issues that you've experienced after a full year of being on the road. Not necessarily just mechanical failures.

I know we all have different trucks/engines/configurations, but there are a number of similarities in setup and potential usage that would make this very interesting reading.

Moving over from years of Land cruiser - roof top tenting, to a big truck will be a huge change for us, and I'm very interested to learn what works and what doesn't.

Have you used your scooter much? Has it been an issue with carnet at borders?

Stuff like that ...

This is a great question and one that requires some thought.

I think I will start a new thread on said findings in a few days

Neil
