Ihave not written much mainly because it has been Quiet at casa Gresford lately. However we are stillpreparing for my retirement and the great walkacross Spain. With this in mind I amtesting all my gear over the next twelve months, and trying out some new technology ready for the trip. My new smartphone is up and working well, and the solar charging is still giving a few problems. I have now bought a keyboard so that I can keep up with the blog while we are away. So to this end I am writing this blog. If it ever gets to the stage where you are reading this, then you know that I will be blogging across Spain next Year. If you can’t read this, well then it will all be a bit pointless.
