The Last Supper

It's finally upon us. The day we start to split off for each camp. Initially our set up week(s) consisted of buying provisions in Murmansk and then moved into dividing them among Pana, Kitza, Middle and Lower Varzuga.

Now finally it is time to load all the laden bags into Helicopters and set off for our camps. With all the time in the world to get things ready it would stand to reason there was nothing left to do but somehow yesterday seemed to be a whirlwind of printing and packing.

A quick cast
We all sat down to our last supper together for a while. Despite extreme cabin fever I have become rather fond of the people around me and am actually slightly sad to be leaving. We have hatched a plan to meet up for supper together post season.

This will be my last post for a while as Lucy and I head out to Kitza to unpack our provisions and get things ready for our first guests. It has not been the easiest thing to write the blog at times but mother nature is a far more powerful entity than I and we have made the best of what she has been giving us.

Set up and ready to go
Thank you for putting up with my ramblings and I look forward to seeing many of you on the river shortly.
