Hope everything goes well.
Brilliant South America, I've spent years going up and down round and round there.
Wow, you are in for a treat, absolutely fantastic.

Yes the ship arrives tonight so I should get the truck on Monday after I have been bent over and abused by the shipping company. Who bye the way upped their prices from 960 USD to 1500 USD for no explainable reason other than I should have paid when they said 960.

After 1 hour and the biggest dose of tourettes they dropped it back down to 960USD but cannot explain what 700 USD of this bill is actually for. So far they have managed to tell me what 248 USD of my 966 is for. The rest is a bit of a mystery.

The problem is that they have a hand full of kings and queens and I have a hand full of twos.

Oh well, I will just be glad to get on the road.

Neil

Ah... well 6 months from now, you won't worry. In the meantime buy a 9mm if you want to argue - probably cheaper than the ferry/import fees ;-)

Stiff upper lip and all that... It'll be worth it.

Hi Dave.

The area we are living in at the moment is preparing for a carnival.

Each neighbourhood has its own druming band and its very competetive.

If you look long and hard you might see some drums.

Yesterday we paid the bail money and cloud9 was released. All went well no damage or drama.
We are now parked up by the beach sorting the van out.

Happy days. The journey starts now
