9 days to go:

Preparations continue as we hastily make piles of stuff, for final cartage to boat, storage, or throwaway. Managed to get the camper van MOT-ed in the UK, which will make it easier to import as a UK vehicle. It'll mean we can moor the boat at times, do some travelling in the camper, then back to the boat. Nice to have that as an option. Things are happening rather quickly now...found a Google Lattitude program which might show our location on the blog..still testing it :)

-15days to go: Moving Onboard.

Well....about 2 weeks to go, and frantically trying to get rid of things we dont need, store things we might need, and move things we do need to the boat:) We made the decision to start a new adventure living permanently aboard a 57ft narrowboat a few months ago, when we approached the bank, took a loan, found the boat we liked/could overhaul, and bought her. Over the past few months, I've done as much as I can, and times soon approaching where we just HAVE to move her out of the winter marina she has been moored at since Nov. Here's a pic of our new home :)
