Up, packed and on the road for 5am - through another sheep dip where we had to hide our apples and then found what must be the only Wimpy in Africa!

The cook group debarcle continued with our resident Princess refusing to stay on her cook group if it only contained three people - she was swiftly reminded that on three separate occasions she had swapped into another cook group to avoid meat, migraines, life etc..

Vikki wrote out a packing list (very organised) for the Okavango Delta and took to considering the water situation (Watergate scandal - impossible to fairly divide 10 jerry cans of water and making it last for two days...), she then advanced to who on the truck would eat the other first - we finally settled on Kelly (with Anand close second) but Kelly said she would only eat one of us if we died of natural causes first...so that was nice.

We arrived in Sedia where we did cook group shopping with the most miserable check-out staff imaginable (worse than Kwik Save, Kenny...) and then headed to Sedia Hotel campsite. We set up our tent and then went to the bar until dinner was ready. Afterwards, we packed for our bush camping in the Okavango Delta and then Vikki was treated to an 'up close and personal' wildlife experience when a camel spider ran across her toes....

Vikki screamed like a girl, I lost some strength in my sphincter and all the boys raced to poke it with a stick....the nightmare had become reality, as we skittered around trying to dodge the ten-legged beast until finally it scurried off into the shadows.

We sprayed the tent with extra bug spray and hit the sack ready for a 6am rise to head into the Delta....

Sounds like your resident Princess needs a good slap, or to be put on the naughty step! And it DEFINITELY sounds like the horrid spider needs a good slap! xxxxx
