August 2011: Time to go!

So, it’s time to go!!! The first members of our group are boarding their flights today!!!! Fly safe Bob, Kira, Bruce, Tammy and Jason…. We’ll see you all in Johannesburg in a couple of days. James and Carmen will be leaving from Kamloops tomorrow. The rest of us are driving down to Vancouver tomorrow to catch our flights to Heathrow at about 8 tomorrow evening. The whole crew will meet up in Johannesburg August 13th at about 8:30 to board our ride to Mbabane, Swaziland!!! Excitement is super high around here!!! A little bit of nervousness thrown in there for certain but that’s to be expected. Hard to believe this thing that started as a little idea is actually happening, less than one year later. We’ve all done some really hard work to make it happen but I’d like to give a special shout out to Bruce and NRI for their donations and support (they are our title sponsor) as well as the insane amount of effort and planning put in to this by Cheryl Doolan and Kira Gosselin and, last but not least the rest of the staff at ASK Wellness who will be here in Kamloops making sure the magic we do every day keeps happening even though nine of us will be gone. You guys rock!!! This has been a tremendous effort on all our parts and I expect the dividends paid from this experience will well outweigh the work we have had to do.

Talk to you all from Africa,

DWC Participant
