The time has come to say goodbye .....
. .......and hello!
In 4 days we finally leave on the adventure of a lifetime. In the 3-4 years of planning I read many of these good bye messages and never believed it would be me one day!
I have to say a massive thank you to everyone on this forum who has helped me learn the difference between 2wd and 4wd, Land Rover and Toyota (sssh now!) LOI and Visa etc etc. When I first came to this forum I was wet behind the ears and dreaming of adventure. I am now wet behind the ears and looking for adventure - and about to find it!
Thanks to the many people across the world who have helped, got in touch and just generally helped me pass the time of day at work.
And the final thanks go to Grant and Susan for creating such a brilliant community and dedicating lots of their lives to helping others find their dreams!
We leave from UK through Europe and then lots of places ending in stan and eventually get to Australia, taking hopefully two years, and coincidentally arriving in time for the Ashes 2010 and a bit later the Rugby world cup in NZ. We hope to maybe work in Oz and carry onwards from there in 2012/13, but who knows what sort of people we will be by then?
You can follow our adventure on the website:

See you on the road somewhere!
Thanks for everything, everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
