Explorer Belt: 1st installment!
Once everyone had arrived the secret was revealed ... Germany was to be our base for the next two weeks.
Morning of Day 1 the nervous excitement began to build. Gear checks revealed well-prepared teams. After breakfast it was time to load up the cars and head for drop off points unknown!
Team B - Emma Harvey and Grace Cronin - were dropped at the Feengrotten (Fairy Caves) near Saalfeld. They completed their project on the caves and are now heading for the Deutch Deutches Museum to complete their next compulsory project. They hope to reach here by Day 4.
Along the way both teams also have a number of optional projects to choose from. These projects will help bring them in contact with local people in the area.
Teams are checking in with staff each day and morale to date is high!
