The Chickens told me that they used previous blogs’ pictures to figure out what to pack for this expedition, so I thought I’ll make it easy for the next guys and make a list of what to pack and what not to pack. Here are the Chooks’ one essential and one waste-of-space items, and also a bonus tip:
Brooke: My fat Victorinox Swiss Army knife!
Nanna: My wax earplugs.
Mollie: Ooh, Branston Pickle and English Mustard.
Sue-Dog: My corkscrews.
Jody: Mozzie spray!
Julie: My sun hat!
Christianne: My head torch.

Jan Jnr: All my things were equally important.
Jan Snr: My extra pair of glasses.
Frank: My sun hat.
Tom: My long silk underwear.
Nanna: My bags of condoms.

Sue-Dog: I never wore my thermal underwear.
