would you like some chicken soup posted to you poste restante birdsville???

Looking forward to seeing you all in the Top End.

What if all the gadgets talk to each other and develop artificial intelligence and take over the trip?

Hope you are having a blast – Wally just hooked me up with your website details and i thought i would have a look… Loving the idea!

May you have nothing but safe travels and amazing experiences to bring back and share with us all in the freezing South of Australia!

Off to Darwin soon – am sure we’ll catch all the tall tales and true there …
Kyra-Lyana, Lynda and Bodhi!

Aug 7. 7:50 AM. They are in Jentzen Island in Portland Oregon. One bridge away from Washington State. Boy… you are behind schedule! Don’t forget to visit Mt. St. Helen when you cross over to Washington.

How I wish we were able to have a chat with you all, but alas traffic was heavy. I’m certain to have been fascinated.
We were driving next to you yesterday (24 Aug 2008) for a short while on North avenue in Glendale Heights, IL. You were first noticed because of the steering wheel on the “wrong” side of the car, but then we got to admiring your whole travel setup.
Best wishes on your travels!

Dear Danny et al

Happy New Year To You. Just back at work and received your holiday wishes. Have caught up with your news/photos at different times and have lived vicariously through them. We had such a fantastic time in our 5 week holiday to Europe and Morocco- but a whole year. WOW!! What a fantastic decision you made to pursue this.

Enjoy every minute.

Hey BlayKhazams!
I bumped into Michal at a party a few months ago and she told me about your epic journey. At that time, we’d just got back from a little family trip to Greece, nothing on the scale of what you guys are doing, but highly enjoyable and life-changing nonetheless. If you have time/interest in us & greek village life, click on the website link!
Love and stay happy Samantha x x (x-zzz)

HI I just found your card going thru some things from my trip. I met you at the cooking class in Lubang Prabang. How is your trip going and where are you now?

Dear Danny and Sandy,

I found your website and read your lovely stories, thanks to Jon Faine’s link from his website. Your travels are inspiring and I’m sure your kids have benefited immensely from the experience.

Well done and all the best with your future travel plans,

Steve Gill, St Kilda

Hi neighbour! Thanks for your comments. While it is now more than a year since we returned, it is still very vivid in our minds.
