Alpha Groups 6,7, 2 and 3!

The Raleigh road trip is well underway and so far we have been able to catch up with Alpha 2, Alpha 3, Alpha 7 and earlier today we left a hard working Alpha 6 in their community in Apantes, Miraflor.

Here is a little update from the Alpha 6 team...

The guys have been spending their time in the community of Apantes in Miraflor, Nicaragua, living with families and spending their days getting stuck into the local culture, teaching English to the local school children and building a community centre. The work so far has involved a whole lot of elbow grease and I have to say that the ´gun show´ will most definately be hitting fieldbase when they arrive back next Sunday!

The group started out by digging numerous trenches and building metal frames. The work was then left to what was described by the team as a confused looking pair of oxen to move several tonnes of gravel, sand and brick to the worksite. As of a couple of days ago, the group have finally finished laying the foundations to the build - hoorah they cry! We left them earlier this morning bringing bags of sand over from one hill to the worksite to be mixed later for cement, which they will then use to start building up the walls to the centre.

Reports from designated communications officer, Lydia, tell us that the first few days proved a bit of a culture shock for the venturers as they adjusted to a diet of beans and tortillas, living in Spanish speaking homes, and sharing their space with many inquisitive children and countless pets... such as dogs, kittens, pigs, cows, chickens etc - the usual. After the hard days work the team are generally in bed early doors, 8pm bedtimes feel rebellious apparently. Although challenging, a few unique and significant moments have more than made up for the trickier times. The team have been swimming in waterfalls on their days off, they have drank coffee in a cloud forest, bonded over shared paranoia introduced by a game of ´human cluedo´and become closer to their Nicaraguan families than they ever would have thought.

The local children are really really enjoying the venturers company. Great relationships have formed between the locals and the venturers and it is clear to see that they have been making a big impact on their lives already, even in such a short space of time. We´ll be back with more updates from this group as soon as possible but for now i´ll leave you with a few snaps of the guys hard at work from 7am this morning!

The unique and stunning Alpha 6 view point - where they give their English lessons to the local children!
Alpha 6 on the worksite!
Working hard moving the bags of sand... and still smiling!


New forms of transport

A little help from the local's goes a long way.

Alpha 7 update... written by Justin.

After two days on Francisco´s party bus listening to classics by Michael Jackson and Bob Marley, Alpha 7 are pleased to have began work on providing a whole community with fresh water! We are working on our buns ´n´ guns of steel (team motto!) by shifting heavy rocks and digging trenches. We are loving our days off lounging by the river and soaking up the sun, as well as an intense game of Mafia or two to keep up on our toes. the whole team are missing everyone heaps but enjoying it here, especially the tortillas for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Alpha seven out.

Short, sweet and straight to the point. Alpha seven are doing well in their new community. After the first few days feeling a bit culture shocked, the guys are now happy, healthy and getting on well with their families. Clear relatioships have formed between the local children and the venturers, which was especially evident in their daily English lesson that we were lucky enough to witness on our visit. With songs like the Hoki-Koki and 'Head, shoulders, knees and toes' featuring in the class, learning really is fun! The lesson continued on into the afternoon and so too did the sounds of the children´s laughter throughout the forest, as more and more children kept turning up to join in! The Alpha 7 troopers have a challenge on their hands in this community; the rain pours daily (and when it pours it really pours) making not only the work harder, but it also becomes much more difficult for them to make their way around the site as the rivers from one end of the community to the other become faster and deeper. Despite all this however the team are happy and smiling and doing incredibly well. The tem are bonding well and big efforts on the work site are really starting to show. Thumbs up from all at Alpha 7.






English lessons!

"Oohhhh the Hoki Koki..."

Alpha 2
Check our a few pictures form the guys as they settle down to relax for the evening after a hard day of Guanacaste trekking!

On the menu for this evening... noodles!


Latinos locos


Alpha 3 Trekkers
Here are just a few snaps of Alpha 3 when we met them the other day as they were nearing the end of their days trek... and just as the rain began to pour!





Let it rain!

Despite all the rain and tough terrain this group are doing fantastically well. Morale is high and the team have a ´no shortcuts´policy. Pretty hard core. We´re off to see them again this evening where we will spend the night and leave fieldbase admin officer, Amy, to trek with them for the next few days... whether she agrees with their new policy or not.

Still to visit on the Raleigh road trip we have Delta 2, Alpha 5 and Alpha 1. Wish us luck!

Pura vida

    Hi Lydia, we love seeing the blog reports and photos. Hope you're good and enjoying your trip. Tom and Harry want to know if you've found giant spiders or snakes or anything vaguely dangerous. They also want to know if you have a laser cannon to blow up any vampire bugs! Tom is worried about the food - he's very concerned we won't be able to buy pizza in France so goodness knows what he thinks you're eating (stewed vampire bugs :) Hope you're taking loads of photos. Keep safe and well, lots of love Celia, Adrian, Harry and Tom xxxx

    Hi Bella We have just returned from a lovely weekend in Wittering celebrating dad's big birthday. We had 14 people for lunch - inevitably the weather wasn't great but we had a fun lunch all huddled inside - we did manage a very blustery beach walk as well. Tonight we have just returned from an IPA Directors leaving dinner at the RAC Club which was fun. We all hope everything is going well and are looking forward to hearing all your news. I saw Beth at the weekend and they are looking forward to meeting up with you in Miami. Lots of love Mum xxxxx

    one thing that i want to tell you about that you might not be tooo pleased with haha is that i went to a casino today with andy. but it was only out of sheer boredom because we didnt want to stay at mahiki. i made £30 being sensible. im not going back dont worry. the harrow boys were in there too haha at like 2 in the morning.

    anyways, i love you so much. you are the only thing on my mind. looking forward to more updates and being able to speak to you sooon!!! wooo :D. ill send you daily texts from napa that you can read on the second. also (sorry about the absolute E grade essay) ignore all my bbms because ive sent a ridiculous amount and theyll send in a weird order.

    so ill be gone for a week again unfortunately because this doesnt work on my phone. here at home everyone is missing you. ive seen messages from shazia and grace saying they miss you on facebook and i showed ife some of the pictures of you and he said he misses you a lot. andy is here now and he says hi and how he wishes you were around because youre such a legend.

    i love you smelly, will send loads of texts. and speak very soon :). keep smiling. i genuinely have not stopped thinking about you since you left. deals a deal xxxxx

    We're missing you so much! Can't wait to see more pictures of you--the last one we saw was on July 18th and that was only of the back of you. And an update on what you're doing and when you'll be back at Field Base would be nice too.

    When you get back, we'll have to plan something special. I know school will have started, but we'll figure out something. You will have so deserved it!

    Know that we love and miss you so much! We can't wait for you to be back home with us. I do have to say that the house is staying so clean though. :)

    Love you bunches!

    Driff show very busy but wet over lunch (not by Costa Rica standards)!
    Cassie Rooney ollie ok (Ollie eating more than he has ever done).
    Starting to get busy at work but weather cloudy this week.
    Mums new greenhouse looks good -she is turning into a bit of a "Charlie Dimmock" (former female tv gardening presenter),
    Countdown to Abi driving, needless to say I wont be teaching her.
    Sounds like you may be pleased of potatoes when you get back.
    Enjoy the trek,think of the memories you will take from this once in a lifetime trip.
