The weather has been constantly wet as predicted, all gear soaked, today some respite and campsite looks like Chinese laundry. Terrain & views limited to a metre or so since Sth Darwin due to dense scrub (Banksias etc), been doing a lot of rock climbing, scrambling, vertical ascents & descents etc. Views improving now they are on Engineers Range.
Individual feedback: Paul - hard, testing; Simon - now nothing else can frighten me; Sue - must review the Morris holiday brochure; Maureen - the boys are brilliant navigators, thank God for gloves and anti-inflammatory drugs; Cynthia - I'm still here; Jason - I am still dragging SPOT around. The equipment holding up well, GPS often a problem due to canopy, scrub etc. The day they tackled Sth Darwin was very dangerous and absolutely horrendous.
Next sat. telephone update 26 November. Updates usually <here> and progress map (SPOT); <here>.
On ya Prickles!
