"Returning to Tasmania from Kupang I launched straight into work aboard my expedition yacht "Blizzard" for the upcoming handover to her new owner and several months later this is almost completed.
In the meantime I have been busy with the finishing touches to "Brandyuck Hut", my 9sqm cabin, an experiment in micro-housing. The experiment is going well and life in 9sqm is proving very comfortable. The greatest suprise was after Matt Orbell from Green Marine completed the installation of the electrical system and I found that even in the dead of winter, with no direct sunlight, the solar panels were providing more than enough power to deliver light, phone, music and computer. No more elctricity bills - what more could you want. In fact life is luxurious after three months in an open boat.
Today squalls pass over Brandybuck Hut, occasionally delivering snow, so I have remained inside with the fire. I am starting to look forward and seriously plan the next adventure - "The Grand Tour - an attempt to cycle around the world. Maps are spread across the floor and I have started to make lists of "jobs to do". My trusty Surly Long Haul Trucker will get some clip-in pedals and a comfy Brooks saddle, however what is really required is for me to saddle up and start pedalling one hill at a time.
I hope you are having as much fun as me
