Cool From Iceland, with Love

As some of you may know, i belong to a group (5 of us) of friends known as the "Dork Squad". We've been friends since the first grade. 2017 marks 30 years of friend ship. We decided to do something big to celebrate the big 30.

So we headed to Iceland for 11 days in late August, early September. Rented an rv and drove across the country. I fell in love. Every day had something amazing on top of hanging with good friends. The Land cruisers were plentiful, and the country begged for further exploration.

On to the pics (still editing, over a 1k took).

Just about done going through pics. Figured i'd start posting when I have time.

After getting through customs, our RV, and food at Costco we headed out on the road. SE from Reykjavik. Goal for the night. Vik.

Woke to the sun starting to rise over Greenland. Almost there. A RS member has been there.
