Trip planning

Hmmm trip planning.

Karen and I have decided what we are doing when she visits. So far it involves doing stuff.

The plan:

We are going to rent a 4x4 and drive around Iceland. we will have about 8 day of travel time to see things and with a 4x4 we will be able to head off onto F class roads.

Class F roads are a dirt tracks, that will most likely involve crossing streams. So it will be neat to go anywhere in the back country.

Other than that we don't have much of a plan yet, but it is coming along.

Home again :(

Well i am home, flew in last Sunday on the 6:50 AM plane. Had most of Sunday to try and recover from a lack of sleep. I had a nap until noon, then went biking, I figured that if I fell asleep while biking the fall would wake me up :)

Sunday was the most gourgous day i have seen in iceland for a while, and has still been nice. I guess I dragged the rain to Alberta and the sun back here, both needed the other. :)

Other than that back into work, and I have the photos downloaded but not processed yet.
