Camp at Last
12-May-2012 02:33:43 AM [(GMT-04:00) Atlantic Time(Canada)]

Rum, rum everywhere and not a drop to drink.

 

After a long day of travel we've finally made it to camp here at Wadi Rum. I haven't gotten more than three consecutive hours sleep yet so I'm completely wiped out and the race hasn't even started yet, tonight will hopefully be different and I'll sleep well.

 

Beautiful setting for a camp, mountains surrounding us and lots of people to meet.

 

Tomorrow is shaping up to be a big day, 38kms in the heat for the first leg. We did find out earlier that the final leg of the race is going to be a 90km finish and the terrain is reportedly tough...sounds fun after four days of racing.

 

Hope everyone is well at home, I'll update tomorrow or the next.
