    Hi Todd and Chantelle! I followed you here and in youtube for a long time. When I was overhauling my CT you were in South America. You always replied kindly when I had questions so I appreciate for that. Thats my bike. I hope i can catch you when you come to Vancouver again.

    T - Its been a while. Its been too long really. So I thought I might do a little update on the blog.

    Chantelle and I haven't given away the bikes or moved away from the idea of doing more biking trips.

    Its just we had to make a decision about money.

    Sure its all well and good to work hard for a year or two and save up some cash before heading off into the world and blowing it all on a good time.

    Actually that does sound pretty damn good.

    Buuuut, we want to be able to sustain our travel. Our next leg of motorcycling will take us into Europe and then down through the Middle East and into Asia. This time round we want to be able to spend more time on the bikes. More time hanging out with you mob. We have made some decisions that are allowing us to work on the road. In the form of some side projects.

    Our little ideas are starting to gain traction, but it just takes a little bit.

    [​IMG]

    So in the mean time we are hitting the road in our ex school bus that we converted into a motor home ourselves. Her name is Wanda. She allows us to continue to live on the road while we work on our new income streams.

    We are almost at a point where we can actually continue to fund our own travels with just some work each day. That's the dream right?

    [​IMG]

    Also we are currently working in a little outback town called Coober Pedy. We are saving some good money and everything is starting to line up for us to begin some rough planning for the return of the postie bikes!

    [​IMG]

    We have been dragging the girls around behind the bus as we go (can you spot them in some of our pics?). So we still have them! And every time we take them for a ride it takes all of our strength to not throw caution to the wind and ship them, us and our new addition (a cat) overseas.

    Patience right?

    Plus to be honest where we are now, location wise, is quite nice. I mean this is my office view these days.

    I fabricated them after watching you guys heading South America. I still follow you with your camper van adventure. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I just started reading this but on entry #37 do I see a coloring book and a box of colored pencils? Does that help?
