Day 20 Oh for some fresh fruit and veg!

Hello Mr Blog - Guy here calling to give you an update on how we are doing.

The time is 10:15pm and other than the moonlight its very dark.  Andy and I have slipped into the night time 2 hours on 2 hours off process and finding it tough.  Food wise we were both starving but have just eaten.  Andy had Spag Bol and I had lamb which was OK although we are missing fresh food but getting into the puddings.  The conditons tonight are calm and with the full moon and some awesome stars out it is really quite nice at the moment.  Andy and I are trying to do anything to relieve the boredom and some interesting topics come up for discussion!  To answer the question about what I would write about in a book it would have to be people on land and doing this has made us both think about who we want to spend more time with when we get back.  Anyway better go but we are doing well and will get back in touch in the next couple of days.  Cheers guys.

    Great progress chaps, really impressive. Interesting to speculate on the polar opposites you are experiencing- the beauty of the night and the solitude compared to the tiredness and the thought of a slightly wider social circle. Just keep focused on the experiences - emotional and physical; and, of course, just keep rowing!

    Yes boys!! You managed to take up a fair chunk of the conversation last night, before I knocked Russ off a bar stall and he broke one of Ed’s ribs. Yes, there was some drinking of alcohol involved (and yes, people are suffering a tad this morning). At present, I think Russ would prefer an anal blister or two! Keep it going - you’re doing awesome.

    J, Ed, Russ

    Anyway, she’s fine. have passed on your iridium No so maybe you’ll hear from her soon…I’ve just topped up her minutes on her sat phone AGAIN!! I wish it wasn’t so expensive!.
    She seems fine, enjoying her routine and the stars etc.
    Hope all continues well for you both. Keep at it…just think of a cool beer at the other end.

    How good to see such progress. What were you eating on the 18 day to make such progress. Well done its so adictive watching your every move. Further news on the shooting stars the season is about to start so keep watching….
    Well done on the 2hrs on and 2hrs off.Have been doing a little research on this and there is a tribe in Brazil in the Amazon basin jungle they are called the Piraha and they take naps 15mins to 2hrs at the extremes during the day and night.So they live their entire lives doing this.This makes visiting very difficult for outsiders as the noise level is very high ( so not recommended). they think sleeping too soundly in the jungle can be dangerous; they fish by night, row, hunt etc so you are not alone.Great book for other bloggers to pass your journey “Don’t Sleep There Are Snakes”!
