Taking it OFF road...

We've finally got the car back from the garage. Very exciting!

This weekend we hit the home straight with out trip preparation heading to North Wales for an off road driving course.

The car was incredible! Really capable on the muddy stuff. Anna even got to take her first shift behind the wheel.

5 days to go...

Far From Help Medical Course

So, we're really starting to warm up for the trip now.

Anna and I spent the weekend in Oxford doing a medical training course called 'Far from Help'. It was a great course, but incredibly scary - hope we don't have to use any of it! 

We covered everything from dealing with a collapsed lung, to broken limbs, to diarrhoea. Though the obvious highlight was learning to use a stethoscope (see below)
