Getting Ready for Kyrgyzstan

Now that we have the all-clear from Mr Conlan we can complete the final preparations for Chris’ school expedition to Kyrgyzstan in July.  Chris is now walking with his trek rucksack and carrying an ever increasing load to slowly strengthen his back and get it used to carrying a reasonable weight – although with the weight he carries around in his school rucksack every day I think he will be fine.  He needs to get fitter though and the dog is enjoying all the extra walking that is now going on in our house.

He is so excited and happy to be going and the company leading the expedition (Bull Precision Expeditions) have been wonderfully supportive throughout his surgery and recovery and I know they will look after him.
