Counting Down to T:0

Now that we can count the number of days left to start our odyssey on two hands, we are getting really excited.

Most things that we will leave behind are taken care of, except figuring out how to squeeze the pile of clothing, gadgets, knick-knacks, kitchen stuff and a couple of bottles of Turkish RAKI (some call it "arak") , into two medium size duffle bags (that is all we are allowed on the flight from Ottawa to St. Martin).

The coordinates of the initial location of RUYAM II is Joma Marina at  BVI, Tortola, Road Town,  18º 25'40.66N and 64º 36"40.86W.

For now you can "go" to this location and see a few pictures on Google Earth or Google Maps. Soon I will try to put MAP and GPS Tracking gadgets on the blog when I figure out how to do it.

These pictures are from last year when we spent a week on Ruyam II.
