Now 12 Months away from an amazing adventure and the crew are in full training and preparation mode already.
Loz flew out from the UK to Australia to meet with me and we certainly got the expedition planning juices flowing.
The hardest thing about most expeditions is almost never doing them, it's all the pre planning and preparation that is the most mind numbing and painful bit for us adventure and outdoorsy types.
Alas however it begins. The journey to cross a completely inhospitable desert doesn't begin with buying camels or treating blisters, it begins with elevator music on repeat for hours at a time while you're on hold to foreign embassies around the world. Yay...
In the mean time it's desert training for the three of us which means summiting peaks in the 40 degree aussie heat!
