Dear reader. By now you have probably come to expect quite a delay in my reporting back on our progress and so I will stop apologising for this. No doubt you’re desperate to know where we are at every point along our trip so have a look at our snazzy map which we try to update more regularly. On this occasion we find ourselves sat in a tourist lodge towards the grand and incredibly famous (not to mention busy) Yosemite National Park but I’ll tell you about that another time. For now we’ll return to Oregon, our second state in the US.
