Early mornings for all today (Thursday) to load everyone and their kit on to the buses and a truck.
First away was Tango 6 at around 06.00. They have the longest drive – about two days to their trek start point.

I’ll aim to provide at least a couple of updates on each project during their nineteen-day deployment on phase 1, plus any interesting snippets as I hear of them.
PS: Just to remind you, you can use this blog to communicate all non-urgent messages to your family or friends in the teams. Just post a comment below any post stating the person’s name and team and we’ll see that it reaches them as soon as possible. While the teams are out on Expedition, we'll gather up messages for them, print them out and send them with the 'Loop' - the vehicle that visits them every few days.
