The current state of affairs is as follows. Ira passed away on the 16th of January 2016 and things have been a little hectic ever since. I've renamed my van, in which we spent so much time together, Ira in honour of my beloved friend. I promised her the trip is far from over so it's my duty to stay true to that ideal. There will be more trips, and we will always be part of eachother.
