    We had an amazing October day. Sunny, cold and no wind. The preparation takes a while, into a warm underlayer, wetsuit on, then hood and gloves. This is after the briefing, explanation and declaration of medical problems. The changing van is heated, so good when changing.

    Our trip began a bit frantically because we couldn’t figure out how to read the Icelandic parking meter! Huffy pulled up in our tour van and jumped out to help us! Without him we may have returned to Reykjavik to a towed or ticketed car! He was also a delightful guide; warm,
