WELCOME TO OUR BLOGSITE. IT'S MAINLY ABOUT OUR TRIPS - IN A TRUCK.

WHILST TRAVELLING OVERSEAS WE USE THE TRAVELOGUES SECTION OF THE SITE TO DOCUMENT OUR LOCATION, RELAY SOME EXPERIENCES, AND TO TAKE THE OCCASIONAL WITHERING STAB AT TRYING TO MAKE SOME SENSE OF THE WORLD.

BY DEFAULT, POSTS APPEAR IN DATE ORDER WITH THE MOST RECENT FIRST BUT NAVIGATING TO THE START OF EACH TRIP IS EASILY ACHIEVED BY FOLLOWING THE 'OLDER POSTS' LINKS.

AS WELL AS MEMORIALISING TRIPS, THE SITE ALSO OFFERS A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO US, OUR TRUCK, AND A FEW USEFUL RESOURCES.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR VISIT!

After Neist Point we spent more time looking for otters at some suitable habitat but again drew a blank. 

Otterless, we headed for the jetty where were to meet the boat first thing in the morning. The boat was in and the owner working on one of its engines. Hmmmm.

Long story short, because of angry winds and swell, he hasn't been able to take trips out for the past few days and though tomorrow seems on, conditions mean he can't then next got to St Kilda until a week today.

Bang goes our carefully planned camping trip.

Fingers crossed that we can at least get there for the day.

Disappointed, we headed off up a nearby track to the coordinates shown (pic) where we both had a run and, afterwards, Emma started unpacking all her fastidiously packed (read crammed-in-a-rucksack) camping stuff to create a daysack instead.

I'm still in denial and will frantically sort myself in the morning...
