We test-packed everything into the kayaks on Saturday. But how to ensure we'd be able to get everything in again once we reach Norway?
Liz made a careful note of where everything fit and I typed it up as a list. "That's not clear enough", she told me, and disappeared with some pens.
The child-like drawings alongside are the result. Not exactly sea-kayak shape, but they show us exactly where different bags of different colours fit.
It looks a little daft - neuroticaly organised even. But anyone who has tried loading a boat on a rocky beach in a hurry, with waves breaking over the bow, will appreciare the clarity of what Liz has done here.
I laminated the drawings and will keep them on the back of the map case.
Four days to go.
