Favorite thing: It really can't be much further now, surely? Things are going really quite well for a while - until we encounter another large tree across the road.

The last two days they've had heavy winds and rain in this area, which has loosened the soil and brought many trees down. The lads who came from Shanklands cleared away five trees on their way to meet us!

Fondest memory: When we got into the Shanklands vehicles at the junction, Jim made a comment about having to share the back of the van with all that logging equipment! Now we are all extremely glad for it!

You really couldn't do this journey without a chain saw or two, an axe a couple of machetes. A few strong men helps too, and someone who knows how to use this equipment!

While the lads get down to some serious tree felling, we, the passengers, are treated to bags of home made crisps and some more drinkies. This really is awfully civilised. LOL
