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.

Norman and Richard testing their Helmet Intercoms.

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.

Steady Norman Steady.....

Prevention is better than Treatment so remember the SAS motto of the 7 Ps – PROPER PRIOR PREPARATION PREVENTS PISS POOR PERFORMANCE!

  1. Rufus, Richard, Stelious, Norman,
    Well done. Although any problem which delays progress may upset you, it is temporary. So do not allow it to effect your enthusiasm and the lovely time you are having. Good luck. You’re in my prayers.
    Then to Messrs Bennett and Georgiou. Remember the Baviaanskloof and the comments and the laughs about my falls. Repent immediately and say sorry Oom Jan!
    I remain envious and cannot wait to open the blog to follow you.
    Good luck. I will certainly be with you in spirit.
    Oom Jan
