Impatiently waiting

7:05 am., April 11, 2011. My last blog from home. The faithful (we hope) Stewball sits in the driveway,  impatiently waiting. He’s on his way and won’t be back for many a day. He was born in Wolfsburg, Germany on August 1, 1966. If all goes according to plan, he will celebrate his 45th birthday in Amsterdam, waiting for the ship to bring him home again. That must be about 80 years in people years.

Starting on the long road to Paris, hope to hear from you along the way,


About ejhowle23

Authors and adventurers, participated in the World Race 2011, an automobile rally from New York to Paris, crossing three continents and 14,000 land miles. Following much the same route as the setting for our debut novel, The Long Road to Paris. This blog describes our own adventures and challenges. And now you can follow our Bahamas sailing adventure that provides the setting for our second novel, Night Watch. Our rally, the African Safari Challenge, crossed five countries in South Africa in May 2014 and in 2015 we participated in the second Trans-American rally this time from Nova Scotia to San Francisco. Spring of 2016 we travelled 28 days around Australia with friends from previous rallies and in the fall participated in our most exhausting rally through Argentina, Chili and Peru- the Rally of the Incas. We were awarded the Against All Odds award. We're still not sure if this was for us or our car. Stewball never broke down and we hardly did. We will soon take on Iceland as a self-drive tour and in the fall of 2017 we will participate in the Odyssey Italia and then back to Africa for a do-over (almost) of the Africa Safari Challenge.
