Well it's official. I have signed up to trek across the Sahara in October 2008 in support of the AS, paid my deposit, and the confirmation from the travel company arrived today. No going back now. Tomorrow I am doing a car boot sale to raise funds (I am funding the cost of the trip myself and so all funds raised will go the the AS) and have spent the day packing up 2 car loads of my own and donated stuff. Wish me luck, I am terrified... of doing my first car boot, not the trek! Anyone passing Burscough tomorrow morning, feel free to drop by and lend some moral support! I have even persuaded my 18 year old nephew and 15 year old niece to get up at 5 a.m. to lend a hand.
