We have decided that the Travelpod site was too complicated so we have changed to the 'Offexploring' blog site so hopefully it will be a bit easier to follow!
It's now November - we are off in less than three months! The count down is really now on. The ball is in a few weeks, then James is off to Australia to sail in the Sydney Hobart yacht race for the army, then we only have about 4 weeks until our departure after his return!
The route planning is in full swing - we have our new GPS thanks to Handtec and have got the maps for Africa CD which has lots of GPS points all though Africa which will be a great help. We are starting to buy all our kit too. We've just bought a new camera Canon 1000D - bit too pro for us but thought it was worth getting a good camera for all the amazing things we are going to see..
We have yet to meet our land rover, hopefully we will go up to Foleys in a few weeks..
