PS... I've started the blog which I'll be using to keep friends and family up to speed. It is a work in progress, but would love feedback. www.somedaynevermaybe.com
So far I have some info on me and the trip, some links to friends and products, and updates thus far to get everyone up to speed.
Still haven't really planned any of S.A. portion of trip and would love any add'l feedback on safety, borders, camping info, route planning, etc, etc, etc...
