Alpha 1 - Om Nom!

Here are some pics from the Alpha 1 food drop - I think the group were pleased to see the crew from Fieldbase!

Apparently all were in fantastic spirits (they are a pretty lively bunch!), well organised and making brilliant progress through the 250km they're set to cover on this amazing trek.

Power on guys! Your new fuel should help...

Tending to the old pies...
Meeting new pals along the way...

Carlton loves a list...

One for me...
Zinc oxide is our friend

Plugged in and recharging!
 Walk or drive Coast to Coast... hmmmm....

 Bye bye Bravo 1 :)

Not a bad view to start a new day´s trekking!


  1. To Nicole Izurieta.
    My dearest Nicole, wishing you the very best on your birthday. I am sure you are having an awesome time and making new friends, missing you lots.

    Hello sweet girl!
    Not much news here. Weather is STILL cloudy and rainy. Murray was runner up in the tennis to Federer. Went for a walk with the girls yesterday and off for another with Rose today, and then out again tonight with the girls. Got loads of reduced apricots at Morrisons so doing major jam production. B rang and I told her about blog so you might get a message from her. Aileen rang and sends her love she's seen you on the blog too....everyone is well impressed and very proud of you! Angus is completing his sleepathon before heading off to camp. Thinking of you and missing you lots, loads of love hugs and kisses, Mum

    Keep on saving those turtles Lou. Did you here what the muppets did in Trinidad?
    Thinking of you.

  5. For Simon Allan - 12G Alpha 5:
    Glad you arrived safely, from the photos it looks like your all having a brilliant time . Jamie says 'sweet bandana'! We've yet to see the 'sarong'(waiting expectantly)
    Just got the results of the room ballot you moved up from 31st place in the preliminaries to 13th in the final ballot so hopefully Jonny should get you both a decent room for next term.
    Enjoy the rest of your trip.
    hasta manzana?

    Hope your Spanish is improving, as you can see Jamie's isn't.

    Te queremos mucho.
    Madre,Padre,y Jamie x

    Hello again sweet girl! Another bleeming wet and cloudy day here! Hope you are getting some sun there because this is ridiculous. Late at work today as we go into Sale tomorrow.
    We're all well and watching the blog for any updates on your project's progress. Hope you are having a good time and that you feel you are making a useful contribution to the community. Also that you are getting enough to eat and sleeping OK!? I imagine that you have to go to bed a bit earlier there than you do here.

    Saw Rosie at Pillars. She is working there 3 days a week, babysitting her cousins 3 days a week and one day off. I think you have the better deal.

    Otherwise life is quiet and damp damp damp. Loads of love hugs and kisses Mum xxxx Scoobs sends a fragrant wouf I think he misses you too!

  8. To Emma Smyth Alpha 5

    Well fathead!
    Hope you are doing good.

    Timmy's over for a few days at the moment. He had his induction day at the school yesterday- he met his mentor and the other trainees. Sounds like it went pretty well. we met up with Calvin for a couple of cheekys when he got back at le jockey. He says hi too, he's started training for his London-Istanbul cycle trip.

    All here is good, the cats are chilling as usual, I'm lounging around, slinking around the house. Also bought a new Xbox lol!
    take it easy and have fun:)
