Without further ado, I should tell you, my dear reader that the expedition has been postponed again. Money makes the world go round, money also pays for expeditions and unfortunately we still don’t have enough in the bank to get this expedition moving.
On the plus side we do have a full team this year, however, I suspect that given another year of fundraising, the numbers will fall and the ideal of 28 people decrease once more… or maybe I will be wrong.
Whilst I decide what to do going forward, I will keep working on my fitness, find a new job and figure out where my time is best spent. Should I invest more time in this expedition, or another? It would seem a shame to do all of the training and not utilise it!
Three years of postponement would make me scream. Maybe it’s because my expectation was too high for this trip? Some expeditions have taken 10+years to get all the funding; I just wish that I knew this before I signed up and worked so hard to get my money in. Anyway, I’ve been through this before and survived so I shall continue onwards, hopefully upwards!
