14 days to go.
By popular demand, here are the first pictures of the Battlebus, now redesignated V-Force One. The special "Vic's Big Walk" decoration will be added soon.
Starting two weeks today, this will be our home for 3 months or so. Commander Gay will fly V-Force One on 70 consecutive 30-kms missions while I clear the ground on foot. Then we shall faff around in UK for a while before meandering our way homewards.
We spent our first night in the module last night, having driven over to St Girons, approximately 100 kms from here and one of our favourite places. Pity about the weather, but it seems we are stuck with it for the next few day. Wet is the word, but at least we have heard no more about the threatened snow.
