the left and Pete from Minnesota in the USA on the right..what do you recon?
Have they got what it takes? Will get the full details up shortly in the
crew section of the web site, but for now I can say we are looking good...it
is the first time that I have met both and I am really happy..they may be
shocked?? But that is the fun about adventuring and expeditions, meeting new
Gerry Fitzgerald who runs the " Offshore Maritime Training Centre" survival
course is a friend of 20 years and runs an outstanding course. We all had
more than a laugh when he was talking about tolerance being vital to assist
in survival if you ever find yourself in a life raft. You are all cramped
up, have little water and food etc and live ontop of each other..then we
started to realize we actually may have more of everything in a liferaft
than being in TBB..she is really a little boat?? So today it was all theory
and popping a couple of flares...tomorrow we are in the pool to play with
the life raft.
The other funny thing that happened today was that we got to eat some of the
food we are taking on TBB..out of date ships lifeboat buiscuits!!at least
they are softer than the Ships Biscuits we baked a year ago!!
