We arrived at West Wellow for 7:00pm for our leaving presentation. The final kit weigh in meant everyone was under the required 15kg…just! After a little bit of mingling, the excitement started to build, with our parents seated in time for an impromptu presentation. Explaining to them what we’ve been up to for the last 18 months, sharing the stories and comic snippets. Chris then gave us the final itinerary for the weeks ahead. The weather holds for a final group photo outside; a last time our parents get to see us clean and tidy before six weeks without showering and coming back smelling! There are lots of hugs and kisses as we say an emotional goodbye to our parents and loved ones.
