Day-39 Football - Motivation

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

The mood onboard is positive today and¬†in true competitive spirit, although 1000nm (1085 nm to be exact)¬†has been hit they are both now ‘gunning’ for¬† the half way point! Wildlife is still rather scarce, their bodies are still holding up but they are keeping a watchful eye.

The boys had a ‘running text’¬†commentry (approx 60)¬†detailing the Manchester United vs Barcelona European cup final last night from the Flying Ferkins Support Crew. They were very amused if ultimately disappointed by the result.

However, as a little motivation tactic,¬†the texting stopped just 12 minutes before the end…..Andrew had to get out of bed and do a 3 hour shift not knowing what happened next.¬†They then had to wait until the messages were queued and delivered 6 hours later! to find out the final result.

Good weather on the horizon (even a climse of some blue sky today), some small local squalls blowing through with rain periodically. 

Always on the hunt for discussion topics for the boys…so keep the comments/questions coming…..
