Tom writes…….

Doug lives some 5 hours drive to the north of me in Tumbi Umbi and as he was in my neck of the woods we decided to have a few hours together.  It’s the first time we’ve seen each other since passing out from Arborfield.  I hope to catch up with him in the new year when we go camping.
