1 week to go – the storms and heat are here anyway!

One week to go and most of the hard work preparing is done. The temperature has gone up in the last few days and we have some summer storms – this will probably be similar to the weather in The Gambia – so get used to it Any more money around we need it in the bank ASAP. Most of our final payments have been made today – now it’s just the cash we are taking with us.

See James’s top tips as we prepare to travel. Don’t forget to get your compass to give to a Gambian Scout. Start preparing your bag early and remember our weight limit – 18kg.

Lots for me to do in the next few days – make sure you are ready for a tough timetable when we arrive – the Gambian Scouts are putting a lot of work in to get ready for us! By this time next week we should be at the hotel – ready for a long day of travel!

See you soon,
