After another month in the field the hunters are due to return to station on Sunday (28th) however this time things will appear a little different. A ship (L’Astrolabe) would have come and gone leaving six summer personnel ashore, one tonne of cargo (including lots of mail and fresh food) and have taken Mango (an expeditioner) home.
So what will be different when they return to station?
- Six new faces (Jaimie, Anna, Charles, Greg, Paul and Lauren)
- One missing face (Mango)
- Lots of mail and cargo including fresh oranges and apples, gifts and other parcels, new comfortable boots, soft spongy walking socks and hopefully a few surprises from home
- An additional table and chairs in the mess
However before the ship arrives and the team walk back to station there’s still a few more days of tramping to do and Dave B is dropping in on the team at the various huts on the island to say hello and download data from everyone’s GPS for the past number of weeks. We are all wondering if Dave cooks better than Pete?
