    Hi Grant, We are not so sure that this is the news Ngaire has been waiting for…… but it goes without saying that Gay and I wish you and Charlie all the best for a successful adventure/expedition. You may not hear from us very often but we, along with a multitude of others will follow your progress closely and with great interest. Go well guys and “may the force be with you” Warm regards Don & Gay
