Hope you are all ok. I just came off shift and have
decided that i would get the blog done sooner rather than later but didnt
actually know what to write. But then i thought about last night.
Did you manage to hear the interview on the radio?
There will be a link appearing here soon, we havent got it yet! But it was
all abit rushed and not as good as last time i fear. AND, did you pick up on my
question? What have a learnt about tom? Really sorry, but thats a silly question
and all i could think of was a silly answer. If i offeneded anybody calling
him and "idiot" or "iritantingly normal" i didnt mean it. I was being quite
mild!!!!!!!!! Joking aside, did you hear him agree with me when i said i
had just nailed 130 miles in my shift, i hadnt, i managed 5!!! Would have been 6
had i had the extra minute or so.
So, Terry the TUNA is still with us as too are a
few of his mates. The only problem is we got a text from a past ocean
rower who suggested he might infact be a darado (spelt wrong, i m sure) and not
a tuna at all. If thats true, thats rubbish!!! So between you and me, of which
we have been told there about 5,000 of you! we are going to beleve that that
text never came through, so terry is STILL a tuna. And yes, lets hold
off the jokes about catching him and eating him. Can you imagine the mess on the
deck, tom would have a nervous break down! Besides getting a 2 foot TUNA
fish into a jet boil cooker just wouldnt work, plaIn and simple!
Were in for a hot one again today and the wind is
slightly across us but it should be ok. Being so hot its alittle bit unpleasent
as we have nowhere to go. If it does get unbareable we might take a break and go
for a swim, but we will see. With the lack of wind the cabin gets to about 110
degrees and the rowing temp cant be far off 100. This when its crutial to keep
drinking. I also had a result on the food front this morning. Whilst eating my
standard breakfast of a few packets of super noddle, i found some more wet food.
To you guys, thats food that doesnt need water. Its lovely. It means i
have atleast another 10 days of wet food to go, not only does this mean we
get lighter but i eat. On top of that i have a few more weeks of snacks. At this
current pace we have 20 days to run, IF WE can keep it up. The last 7 days will
be tough, eating what can only be described as vomit looking, vomit smelling and
vomit tasting food. It is edable but only just. W hats funny about the wet
food food is that it is called "lamb Tanijine" and yet it is made of
Ok. im gonna sign out. I have just eaten a while
pack of winegums whilst writing this........shugar high here we
