Miles and Miles of Bugger All.† Miles and Miles of HIStory. Aka. Sand in the Tent.
Kalahari Research Trip 2010
I knew we were in trouble when packing in Durban for our forthcoming field trip.† A group of students tasked with doing a stock take of cutlery and plates with great thought to packing order had transferred the contents from the picnic basket to the catís carry basket. Inexperienced campers brought bulky department store blankets instead of compact, light and specialist camping gear. †One student paid the expedition levy with a fake R200 note. I learned it was fake when it was rejected by a filling station deep in the Kalahari.
