Back in the saddle...

Hi all,

I am now back at home for a bit, having just finished a short field trip to Iceland, one of my favourite places for visiting and working.  I spent most of my time surveying old abandoned farms such as the one more or less visible at right in the picture below, which dates back at least to the 13th century.  It was great fun and very productive and, as you can see, Iceland's landscape certainly loves a camera lens.  I'm a bit sad to be home!  It is our national holiday here in Canada today, so I am home taking care of the odds and ends of tasks and chores I left trailing when I departed.   Two of these (and the most fun) will be to work up some new terrain boards and restart the Syldavia story, where Duke Jiri, caught between the hammer and the anvil (rebels and the Bordurians) must finally make a move.  Check back later today.

Thanks for looking in!
