Time to get serious about Heard Island Expedition

It’s now only 7 months until we sail from Freemantle to Heard Island.  In the next week the charter of the vessel Akademik Shokalskiy will be confirmed and the permits from Australian Antarctic Division will be applied for.  It’s all go from here on in.

Several weeks back I returned to my local gym to be confronted by scales telling me I had stacked on 7kg’s of “conditioning” while I’ve been resident at the hotel in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.  A more strict diet is now in place and my training programme has stepped up a gear.  Thankfully I’ve managed to shed 3 kg’s so far as I head back down to the low 80kg’s I hope.

Soon it will be time to start carrying a heavily weighted back pack around the local streets – I can’t wait !!
