Hello, dear readers :)
I just wanted to explain why I’ve been so quiet as of recent, and why I’ll likely be pretty quiet for the next couple of months.
In short: I’m doing the Mongol Rally (with mad Canuckistani Dane Foster). We’re leaving Wellington on July 10th, and beginning our epic trip from the UK to Mongolia (in a VERY small car) on July 14th. We hope it won’t take us months, but there’s no way to be sure of that :)
I hope to get to write some interesting science-related stuff* en route, and we’ll definitely be updating people on our whereabouts and adventures! Keep an eye on our team website — lemurattackforce.co.nz — for stories and pics and assorted madness.
Also, if you happen to be in Wellington today, come along to our launch/farewell/fundraiser party! It’s at The Hop Garden (Pirie St), from 7pm onwards. There’ll be special cocktails, and awesome beers and company, and we may well be raffling/auctioning off some pretty cool stuff, too :)
It’s an open/public party, so bring everyone you know, and we hope to see you all there!
* I’ve already written one: Ulan Bator’s geoengineering scheme is THAT cool
