Less than a week left

Can't believe that its less than a week before we fly South.

Eversince I was notified back in August that I had been selected I have been working hard to put the trip to the back of my mind and get on with life.

Up until recently I have been fairly successful but now that it is so close its very hard not to be nervous. I have this knot in my stomach thinking about the days ahead.

It's not that I am afraid or anything it's just that the Falklands have always been this huge event in my mind and I go back not knowing what to expect. I must say though that I am getting many messages of support on the SAMA82 forums and it seems I am not the only one feeling this way.

Nice to know we aren't flying down on some clapped out Tri-Star :)
