9 days!

Only 9 more days until the adventure begins. Yesterday evening I went to the pharmacy to stalk up my first aid kit. I bought antibiotics to control infections, T3's for more serious pain control, ibuprofen and acetaminophen for general aches and pains and some emla. Emla is a topical cream that will numb the skin. This will be used for emergencies where I have to sew myself back together. I also have sterile sutures, just in case. Oh yeah, and lots of bandages.

Hey wildpaddler- be careful out there with the emla, Not to be used on broken skin or burns. So unless you plan on piercing yourself, take heed. If you do come across an adventure or the need for an Emergency vaccination please share your story at We are giving away a safari, flights and other goodies.

good luck out there!
