If you read yesterdays feature titled ‘Jessica’s Dream’ in the Weekend Australian Magazine you’ll understand why I spent all of yesterday being teased about not being able to find a razor! To my horror and with the help of a once trusted source (Mum!) comments such ‘Pretties herself up, can’t find a razor’ ‘Alone in the ocean swells, shaven legs or not!’ found their way into national media! But other than being described as Pippi Longstocking, the article was another good read.
After meeting with Professors, Fiona and Gray from the Sunshine Coast University on Friday, I’ve been busy keeping a food dairy and have been put to work rating different kinds freeze dried food. With this information as a starting point, Gray and Fiona will be able to put together a detailed meal plan for the voyage. There’s a million things to consider changing energy needs, likes/ dislikes, nutritional needs, storage, weight etc.
Still plenty of progress at the shed, a little bit of paint here and there and few new fittings makes it feel like we might be on the up hill. I’m constantly amazed at my ability to completely cover myself with resin and a million other sticky, itchy, stinging products.
Tomorrow I’m headed down to Brisbane again this time to study diesel engines, maybe being locked up a class room is a good thing while all those smart comments about the razor die down!
