The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

thank you...

...for the reassurance that there are some people reading and that
you'd like the posts to continue.

I was thinking that, being a bit dull and repetitive in my posts
(heat, water, altitude, hard!) that you'd all wandered off to read
more interesting blogs!

I will continue to type daily blogs, but I run out of Blackberry
service on 30 June and it's probable that I won't find a mobile signal
again before then. So, after this glut of posts* there may be no more
until we get home (unless I find a library and retype some of them).

(*there may not be a glut of posts. My phone will receive email but
it's refusing to send at the moment, and webmail is too painful, time
and battery consuming)


  1. Oh good heavens, we're ALL reading your blog - avidly!
    I didn't want to post any responses because I was aware of your limited phone coverage, I think others are of a similar mind.
    Keep it coming....we're all looking forward to the apres-trip slide show party at your gaff!

    ....oh dear, didn't we mention that?



  2. Couldn't agree with you more JJ - looking forward to the rest of your adventure - my own are limited for a while! Keep the episodes coming.....

  3. Gayle,
    I usually read the story en-bloc. Keep em coming. Don’t get despondent.

  4. I am still reading too. Sorry - I should have commented earlier. Great reports so far
