Cub Trip One: The Vectra

Day One: Norfolk

Pre-flight planning in Adrian's kitchen

Over to Martin’s house to pick up the jerry cans, luggage and Kaz’s survival kit. Kaz is Martin’s significant other, and this survival kit’s typical of her gloriously mad understanding of the world. She hands me a party bag in which I find:
  • Two bars of Green & Black’s chocolate
  • A toilet roll
  • Some moist wipes
  • A ballpoint pen
  • A notepad
  • Four party poppers
  • A balloon
  • A puzzle book

If she’d been Scott’s quartermaster in 1911, Amundsen wouldn’t have stood a chance. Martin makes one of his epic curries and we lay plans for an early start tomorrow.
