Strangely, these look exactly like my vital signs. And I’m not dead yet. I hope that’s a good thing.

How come we haven’t seen any posts on the raft race? You and Caleb need to get going… we need stories and pictures!

Dear Martin, we are working on them. Stay tuned…

Dear Martin, Thank you for your patience. Caleb is writing an epic account of the Great River Amazon Raft Race. He promises to “pull no punches” but he will change the names.
