Im all ready for my first backcountry projects that im all excited about it.
Thur - We went and played a game of Football(Soccer) with 12 of us. It was pretty intense with the short sharp running and at altitude, it was good to feel absolutely shattered at stages. Adam twisted his ankle pretty bad, I got a bruised Tib anterior and lateral soleus and gastroc and twisted my right knee alittle. I was shocking at the game though a kiwi with no skill.
Then Tim, Stef and I went to the library and then out for dinner at KFC, and sat there for awhile chatting. I went back to my house and they were watching Pineapple Express so I joined them for as long as my eyes would stay open for.
This morning Lesley, Axel and I walked up to Cedar for the safety meeting. Cause we live right in town and the others live 30min up the hill from us.
Dianna our team supervisor is really awsome so it will be lots of fun. After our meeting we all walked back to town and had a look around some shops. Then Lara, Siaka, Axel, Danial, Ollie and I went to a Chinese Buffet for lunch. I was so full I thought I was going to throw up, and I hardly ate alot.
It will be a big and sad night tonight with alot of my new friends leaving tomorrow.
Tomorrow we meet at the office at 545 go pick the others up and make our lunch. We are heading to Paria Canyon to attack the Tamarisk trees that are taking over the river bed. It looks really nice there. But first we hike 17miles along and through the river to get to the work site, I believe we will have mules support to carry some of our food and tools in, I honestly was alittle gutted when I heard that, I wanted to carry it all.
I am now half way through my ACE experience and have 120american dollars left. Good thing there is alot of common food around.
