Hi all!

LOTS has been happening in the last two weeks – we’ve
been busy, baby!

(1) First the invitation
(2) Rog’s new job
(3) our new apartment and info
(4) moving

(1) First the invitation
We want to invite all of you in the SF Bay area to a
little afternoon BBQ where we’ll be housesitting this
weekend, cuz we’d love to see you! Here’s the info:

WHERE: 1265 Portland, at Key St., two blocks from
Solano Ave. in Albany (one town north of Berkeley).
Nearest BART stop: El Cerrito Plaza, about 10 min walk
to the house.
WHEN: Sunday, starting around 2pm till ?? Come and
see us, and bring something to put on the grill! We’ll
throw together some other goodies and drinks as well.
Please let us know if you can come. Email or call
(415) 378-4074.

(2) Rog’s new job
As of last Thursday, Rog is the Development Manager at
Redefining Progress. It’s a cool public policy org
working on sustainability issues. They have a nifty
interactive “ecological footprint” calculator on their
web site. Check it out at

(3) our new apartment and info
Our lease starts on our new apartment on August 27! It
is less than a block from Lake Merritt in Oakland, has
gorgeous hardwood floors, kewl old 50’s tiles in the
kitchen and bathroom, and is BIG. It’s about a five
minute walk to Grand Avenue (cute shops and
restaurants), 15 min walk to Rog’s job, close to the
lake for great walks and runs, AND there’s a rowing
club that we’re interested in checking out. We’re
psyched. For future reference here’s the address:

(4) moving
So, we are wondering who we might be able to snag for
a little move-in help on Saturday, August 31 (or any
other day that weekend, if that works better for
you??). We know it’s a long weekend, and figure a lot
of people will be going out of town, but we thought
we’d see who we could drum up before we break down and
get movers. Please let us know ASAP if you think you
could help. We promise to feed you, maybe give you a
massage…make it worth your while. It shouldn’t take
too long, as everything is already in storage boxes
and just needs to go in the van, and then out of the
van and into the apartment.

We hope all is well with everyone, and for those of
you around San Francisco, we hope to see you SOOOON!

Lots of hugs,
Jen & Rog

Rog and Jen’s travels – some old stuff, some new stuff

This blog has a collection of the travel update emails that Jen and Rog compiled during our 2001-2002 round the world trip. We're off to do a bit more trekking around, and thought it would be nice import those old emails. Enjoy!
