Right, I’m off to Abu Dhabi again, peeps. Another Desert Challenge and, hopefully, another set of stories.
I’ve been unhappy with how I write up these trips for a year or so now. Emergency medical work tends to be framed in long periods of tedious fuck-all. I don’t report these periods when I’m on the road back home, because they’re no fun to read.
Usually I’d give you a day by day breakdown, but these are, I suspect, pretty boring to read and, I know, cripplingly boring to write. Not to mention they mean I have to spend my evenings in the UAE scribbling notes or typing said notes up into a draft.
And I don’t want to feel like writing about FLYING AROUND THE DESERT IN A HELICOPTER should be a chore. I want you guys to feel the buzz, the ups and downs of the event.
So instead, I’m taking my little Bluetooth keyboard with me and plan to blog this trip live, where possible. Taking photos with my Iphone to illustrate the posts and (fingers crossed) using the Control room’s wifi connection in the evenings to get things up and online.
