UPDATE:  July 22, 2013

Has been 3 years since we've updated
this site due to a software conflict we
had with Vista in 2009.  We are now up
and running again and will start filling
in the void.   We have been to so many
new places.  New Caladonia, Vanuatu,
Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia,
Thailand and Myanmar!  
Keep checking in for the adventure!!
