We are currently sitting down eating breakfast at home, and leaving for the airport in about an hour. My mum keeps hasseling us whether we have everything packed and I am at the stage where if I haven't packed it now I really don't care! It's all packed, I know it is
I'm not excited yet but I will be when we reach the airport. Then we've got to wait 3 hours! We now have a stopover in New Zealand for 2 hours on the way, instead of just a re-fuel so today will be my first trip to NZ!
For those who don't know already, Brian and I are heading off to the USA to work at a Boyscout Summer Camp in Georgia. The camp is in Clayton - about 3 hours from Atlanta.
Brian will be a Group Leader who will take the kids for their Golf Merit Badge. So basically he gets to play Golf in the summer sun for about 8 weeks and get paid for it!
My position is not officially arranged yet but what I know so far is that I will be the assistant Medic to a lady called Sandy. Basically I will just be assisting her at night times, and taking over at Medlodge while she teaches some first aid/cpr courses during the day. The days that I am not assisting her I will be filling in positions for activities like rock climbing, COPES, archery etc and getting paid for it. The other important thing is that I get to wear scrubs while doing med duties
Then when Summer Camp finishes we will be flying back to LA and spending 9 days there. We'll be heading to Disneyland, California Adventure Land, Universal Studios, Knotts Berry Farm & Medievel Times plus heaps of other stuff!
