Thanks @DougJoseph !

As I said elsewhere I know that 5,000 downloads doesn’t make me an internet King, but when I taught myself to draw using a computer as a 70th birthday gift to myself this was beyond my comprehension!

I’m not sure what to make of @vicious1 's 18,000 downloads though! That is truly amazing.

Incredibly, thanks to Printables “game”, I have currently seven spools of filament in credit in my account, some of which will be turned into an LR3 at my usual snail-like pace, as soon as I return home.

Four months travelling in Europe over summer is super fun for a couple of aging couch surfers, but it does get in the way of making stuff!

While I usually leave my internet life in quite compartmentalised blocks, if you would like to taste a bit of the flavour of our travels and adventures on our 45 year old ex-hire boat, you can check us out here:

Thanks Doug, although we’d prefer to think of it as what we do for a living - we bough a very cheap and very battered boat 13 years ago and have spent (except for the last two Covid years) 4-5 months fixing it and moving ever so slowly round the inland waterways of France, Germany and Belgium with perhaps a bit of the Netherlands planned for next year.

When you are travelling at 8kph which is around 5mph you get a lot of time for sightseeing.
