The Three Farmers and a Greek came together to do final preparations for the trip, starting on 31 March 2011. Points on the agenda were – final list of gear to take and how to split items, not to duplicate them, how to work the finances amongst them selves and the first aid kid was discussed. The Helmet intercoms were paired and tested.
Dr. Haggis Black, the Superintendent of the Adelaide Hospital kindly gave the group some First Aid tips and Norman even got a chance to put a drip on to Richard.
Prevention is better than Treatment so remember the SAS motto of the 7 Ps – PROPER PRIOR PREPARATION PREVENTS PISS POOR PERFORMANCE!
