Some time later...

Well, no-one has written a post on this site for a while... tsk, tsk. Had more than our fair share of snide comments about that too.

What's happened in between then and now? Well lots. Lindsay has been to the States and back (a few pictures now reside in our Flickr account). Winter has slowly turned to Spring, and it even feels like Summer might actually be something more than a childhood dream. Especially as we get to spend a couple of weeks of it in the States! Yep, that's right, we're both going back and we will be camping. Lindsay tells me it is high quality camping - something frequently referred to last summer when we spent a few days in the Gower. Apparently we (the English) are content to camp in fields where you have to be near other people... wherever we are going you get your own little space! I'm not really sure what to expect, but I imagine it will be great fun as long as we don't get eaten by bears, bitten by snakes, attacked by raccoons or [insert negative action] by [insert animal not present in the UK]. The list is endless really...

So yes, that will be fun. In other American news, we will apparently be cycling across the U.S. at some point. I suggest that rather than doing that we take a road trip. I even made a little file to show the route we'd take in Google Earth, but I'm not sure where I can upload it so you can see it... If I work that out I'll tell you. Cycling is good an all... just not sure about 3000 miles, or however far it is. Still if that guy can walk across America, perhaps we can cycle? I'd like to do it - hey I'd like to cycle along all the way down the Pan American Highway - the question is, is it feasible? Or perhaps I shouldn't think about that - perhaps we should just do it, though not right now as it will soon be time for tea. I suppose if we're going to be ambitious, how about going round the world on bikes - like Ewan McGregor and Charlie Whatsit did, but purely using human power? One day, maybe. For now I will content myself with flying round the world on Google Earth - faster, and more convenient.

  • hahaha - great post. my fav bit is Charlie 'Whatsit' because seriously, no one actually ever remembers his name! I have watched that whole series twice and I haven't a clue!

  • Yahoo! Praise the Lord. A new post from the Pete & Linz pair. I'm happy. :) It's great to hear news from your world. And I'm looking forward to the worlds joining on our fun family camping trip this summer. Woohoo! However, I will let YOU do the cross-country cycling.... I will cheer from the sidelines...i.e. my couch. :D
    Love you guys.

  • Hey guys:
    that cycle ride... anything planned for perhaps mid-to-late April through to mid-June 2008?? Your enthusiasm (well, Lindsay's anyway) helped to push me into taking it all a stage further, and I've asked my guy in Minnesota to answer twenty questions on it. Two that I more or less answered myself were: East to West is the preferred direction apoparently, and there is a fairly recognised route, the Trans-America Trail, from Yorktown VA and finishing in Seattle WA. Better get training...
