Apologies Galore

Location: Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK
I'd just like to apologise for the complete lack of activity on the blog lately. It's the rather boring and overused excuse of "being busy". We have been organising and sorting out but it's all the boring stuff.

One such essential but boring activity of getting ready to go; spending time at the doctors getting stuck with needles.  Because I have never been away I have had quite a few jabs, with many more to come. We still need to sit down with the nurse and sort out all the malaria tablets, joy of joys!  But needs must, and with every little prick the adventure becomes more of a reality.

We've also had a rather fruitless conversion with US immigration where we learned nothing new and they actually used the line "A law is a law".  And the first leg of the journey, cycling around the western states of America, is based on the Customs and Border Patrol Officer that we interact with at 8pm on a Friday night.  We'll all just have to find out how that goes.

I'm also going to say sorry because we have changed the way emails from the blog are sent to people who have requested them.  We weren't entirly happy with the pervious arrangement.  We had no control over the database of contacts or when or how you were notified, so we are now the custodians of a fancy new newsletter that we write, manage and organise when and to whom it goes to.  However we have to ask all of those who want to get it to sign up here.  Just so you know, another benefit is that if you reply to the email then we do get the response and we can strike up a conversation and keep in touch with you lovely people.

And last but by no means least we have also added a Facebook page for Detour to Moose Jaw.  Some of our loyal fans were finding it difficult to comment and share the blog post from the blog page, so we have been beavering away moving a lot of the content over to good old FaceyB.  Just head over on this link to find us.  Please be aware that the posts are just summaries of the longer blog entries, a bite sized chunk if you will.

So without further ado we both wish you all the happiest of Christmas' and a fantastic and wonderful New Year.
