The wi-fi signal on this pitch is barely sufficient to allow me to buy wi-fi let alone use it. So, AlanR and Conrad: thanks for your comments and I'll respond asap. Good to hear from you both and catch up with your blogs in due course.

Also, I responded to Oss's excellent post but it may have been a victim of loss of signal. If so, I'll comment again. What a life.

Hello Gibson; and, of course, Lynne. Make the most of being incommunicado; the minutiae of life will catch up with you soon enough.

That's a fabulous picture, Gibson. I've got a bit of blog catching up to do - not read much since the start of the Challenge and since I've been back I've been under the weather and sleeping a lot.
Have a good holiday, you two.

The trouble with living on a small island is that internet thinking is also small scale with big bucks attached. Go to the US or the far east and the internet seems to work everywhere and mainly free or very low cost.
I noticed on Skye that local communities have had enough and are installing their own systems. Its all rather archaic for 21st century technology.

Hi Dave. The minutiae will catch up with us tomorrow, at least for a couple of weeks, before we escape again at the end of the month.

Hello Alan. I'm sorry to learn that you haven't been feeling so good recently. Give yourself lots of TLC and you'll be your old self again soon. Lynne and I are looking forward to reading about your crossing so get cracking :-)

The BlackBerry camera is not too bad in good light for blogging pics and this one was taken on a peerless day. The Sony camera took much better ones which I'll upload to SmugMug or Picasa when I get home.

Hi Alan. Internet at last. I suspect there must have been a glitch because we haven't moved pitch and now everything seems fine. Only 250 kps though and expensive at £2 per hour or £5 a day with discounts for longer periods. Rural communities up here have been complaining for years about the lack of decent broadband. Hopeless.
