Hi Jamie Alpha 6

Blog number 3. Blogs 1 and 2 haven't appeared yet so I suspect snafu. I'm trying again and will contact Raleigh if this one doesn't get through. This Blog contains highlights from Blogs 1 and 2 so you won't miss anything.
Firstly thanks to the Raleigh team for the photos - Mum has liked them all so far, though she wasn't too sure about that rope bridge, I don't think she would have used it. Alex said he hoped that you were OK, the photos seem to suggest no worries there.
Football score - Birmingham 2 Leicester 0. I watched the match so that I could give you a brief summary, which is that your mosquito net has less holes than Leicester's defence. I'll send the Europa League result after Thursday.
A package arrived from Korea the day after you left followed by a demand for customs duty. I paid it so you shouldn't get arrested on return. I hope that the contents weren't needed for Borneo, apparently the package was sent by the slowest delivery option.
Otherwise all well here, hope you enjoy your little trek through the jungle, good test for all your gear. Take care.
Dad

Times is hard and the Stone Roses have reformed. If tickets become available before you get back, I shall make an executive decision and get you one.

To the Comms team; you're doing a brilliant job of keeping us all up to date with the expeditions, thank you. I hope James and Jemma, the Medics, aren't having to use their skills on the venturers too much. All the best to everyone - Alastair Yates

Penny Yates said...

Great to see everyone beaming, a really lovely photo .. and the sun is shining too! Down to 2 degrees in UK tonight, brrr. Woolly hats will be out this weekend while you are under the shade of Tilleys and trees.

For Elliott Simpson:

Hey elli!
The leafs won today!!!! :D (october 19)
They played winnipeg and went into over time. Then they finally won in a shoot out.
The facebook updates made it sound intense but i couldn't watch it. I guess they dont show the games here if they are only canadian teams? I was annoyed.
anyways so now the leafs are 5-1. This may actually be their year.
Miss you
- Kascha

Elliott (alpha 6)
Leafs pulled off a big shoot-out win tonight against the jets after being down 3-1. As of Oct 20 their record is 4-1 but the one loss was in ot so we still got a point.
Hope things are good, more hockey updates to come.

Lieve Julie (Alpha 5) hoe is het er mee, lukt het een beetje? jullie zijn al een eind op weg, hopelijk is het een beetje redelijk weer. t.F. vertelde dat Fem met haar gebeuren verstopt was voor Cé en haar clubgenoten. 3 keer raden waar: ze waren ondergedoken in de bornwaterschool. vanwege de vakantie mochten ze daar slapen op matrasjes, grappig toch? een kleine wereld. hier alles goed. A. heeft vandaag en morgen tentamens. daarna weer even niets. heb crocus geboekt in dorp JW, oostenrijk NB! de a'huizen gaan daar ook heen en misschien nog een paar families uit 5V. take care, dikke zoen, M&P xxxxx

Hey Jules (alpha 6), tried to put something on here before but either it's got lost in the ether or I had too much wine and forgot where I put it as can't see that it's made its way up here. Essentially I was keeping you up to date with how ace I am at netballs, and saying how cool you look crossing rivers with the skilful handling of your stick. I've found another race to do in December, lots of waist deep peat bog, sounds cold but fun. It finishes in a pub of course. Hope you're avoiding getting too close with the leeches, and having a great time. BF3 beta has been taken away so now we're just waiting for the actual game. I'm going to try and rank up faster than Dan and will no doubt fail. Take care of yourself, stay frosty Julian. Lisa x

Yo Yo Megs (Alfa 6 - sounds like Spooks!)

Daisy's Dad said...

Hey Daisy,
How's it going? You're looking awesome in the baggy and beige nosilife kit!!! I'm at home on my own, Mum and Milli have gone to London today for the work experience. The dog doesn't tell me if there's been an update so I have to look on my own!!
I hope Guy has managed to post a comment now cus he couldn't work out how to do it and was getting worried that you might think he wasn't bothered, You should be pleased to know that he is.
I miss you and really hope you're having the best of times. I Love you baby Daisy and hope you're suitably embarrassed by my slushy message.

Joan en Annemieke said...

Beste Barend,

Wat zal het daar fantastisch zijn. Jungle en straks duiken, dat staat toch wel erg ver weg van ons brave gedoe hier. Hoewel... Feyenoord speelde vandaag Ajax in de Arena helemaal zoek, maar vergat door te drukken. Het werd 1-1 (lucky Ajax). Jammer, maar ze staan nog steeds 4e en boven die ploeg uit 020. Hes deze week een dagje in Groningen geweest, was kennelijk cool. Heel veel plezier daar, maak er wat van, dikke hug van Joan en Annemieke

Elspeth Yates said...

James Yates!!! Big bro.....great to see your massive grin-hope you're still having an amazing time. Miss you loads. Little sis (Elspeth) xx

Ik zal stukje voor je bewaren ok. Kom net terug uit New York. Super leuk even naar Gap, Abercr, en starbucks. Is even wat anders dan de rimboe. Hou je taai daar en we volgen je ok.

For Leo
Hi Darling, it was so amazing to speak to you this morning. i was so surprised. Sound like you have all been very intrepid in the jungle and coped amazingly with the challenges of long treks and leeches. Can't wait to hear more and to see pictures!! When you are diving can you get to the internet? Want to show you final version of the PS as we must send off. We are all well here but missing you of course. All admiring your courage - i would be scared still sleeping in the dark and wet and miles from nowhere. Love you darling, mummy x x x
