We're going on a Road Trip!

Field Base Road Trip
Natalie, Karen, Nicole and Phil 'the bear'

Occasionally the Field Base team are given the opportunity to escape and venture further afield by going on a   'Road Trip'. The purpose of the road trip is to check on the venturers and their progress and  deliver or replace much needed equipment such as lost boots or broken rucksacks or tape for those inevitable blisters! It is also when the much welcomed food drop is made and the venturers receive more of their  favourite meals of rice and beans and the 'stick to your ribs' porridge. Occasionally if the field base team are feeling generous they may cook them a cake to take along, as was our communication manager "Ruth" when she recently visited Alpha 3, who are at Playa Hermosa currently protecting the turtles.

The road trip is also a chance for stories and gossip to be exchanged and any messages posted on the blog to be delivered to the venturers when they can receive news and good wishes from home which can lift the spirits if they are feeling a tad "home sick"!

Occasionally on the road trips we have to collect and return volunteer managers back to field base such as our intrepid photographer "Joss" who is much missed at Fieldbase for his skills as a Spanish teacher and his incredible general knowledge (sometimes not useful or relevant but nevertheless entertaining)............ who needs Google when we have Joss? Hopefully soon he will be returned with some wonderful pictures of all the venturers having the time of their lives.
