Bruce’s vintage suitcase is packed and ready.
Bruce’s great grandfather was an avid traveller as the old labels on his bag show. Intending to follow in his flipper prints, Bruce has pulled out his Great Grand Whales suitcase and has packed a special diary so that Whaleoil readers who billet him can jot down where he visited and what he got up to.
As every good traveller knows, you always leave plenty of room in your bag for mementos and Bruce is no exception. He is travelling light to ensure that he has room for all the small bits and pieces he will collect along the way.
Bruce even has his own facebook page so that there will be an online record, as well as a handwritten record, of his adventures. To keep the Whaleoil community in touch with his progress we have requested that updates be posted on one of the General Debate posts by Bruce’s hosts during his stay. To save on writing things twice, it might be a good idea to provide a link on General Debate to Bruce’s facebook page when his host has updated it.
