Yes we are going to go right round the ring road, it's a pain to get to Iceland 2 ferries but hopefully we can fill the van with a months worth of food.We did consider using a motorbike but the weather and cost of food put me off plus it breaks down every time I use it!.

I have just booked the ferries so I haven't really got an itinerary yet but will be doing some mountian biking and walking. Looks like a Macaw in Kirkby Stephen?

Yes. On our crossing we hadn't heard of them and they flew over as we walked into town. Of course the locals were blasé.

The story.

Hi Jonathan your mail box is full, I think this is a Darwin beetle I found it on the snow line ascending Villarica, unfortunately it clouded up on the top so I couldn't look down into the lava pool after all that effort!

It was in the "summer" myself and my 9 yr old did the first half. The weather forecast ahead wasn't great and with us camping we had the natural break at Kirkby Stephen to pick up the second half this summer. From Borrowdale to Grasmere the weather was so bad we averaged just 1 mph. We didn't see a Macaw - we'll keep our eyes peeled

Sitting in a pub in Bodmin while we kill time before boarding the Sleeper.

Just walked Rock to Port Isaac to Trebarwith Strand to Crackington Haven. One more stretch to the Devon border and that's the whole of the Cornish coast.

Saturday was dry and sometimes sunny, Sunday was windy with some rain, and today was tough. Wet from 1100 to 1800, and serious winds, probably over 45 mph as we were being knocked sideways a couple of metres. What comes between bracing and downright foolish?

Severe absence of wildlife, but HMS Queen Elizabeth was going in the opposite direction.
