June 26, 2009: 12 hours out

G'day all,
Well, the countdown is on. Just 12 hours before flying out, on my way to the research site to meet up with the other members of the team in Halifax. Here's hoping that all goes well with the flights and that they are all on time because I do not wish to miss out on any of this experience. Today has been a very quiet day compared to the last week or so. It's been hard the last few days, saying goodbyes to my two special daughters, because this is the first time that I will be away from them for seven weeks and I will miss them very much. This will a trek of a life time for me and they understand. Still hard though. Cheers all! Tomorrow I fly.


I'm glad I took the time to look a bit closer at this Earthwatch project. Good luck to you and Paul.

I will be following your blogs closely and hope to learn more about the mammals in Nova Scotia. Hope all goes well.
