Follow Me - What am I going to do?

This week I am going to travel through a part of South Africa for work, and it would be great if you could join me and meet some of the terrific guys I work with on a daily basis. Yes, you guessed it - I am not a writer by profession. I am a project manager and this week the product that I am responsible for is going on a firing trial.
For those of you not familiar with the term “firing trial” I will explain. I work in the military industry and in South Africa, Denel Land Systems  is busy developing a new generation of infantry fighting vehicles for the South African National Defence Force (SANDF for short).
My team and I are responsible for the Mortar Variant system, and we are taking our system out for a test. And while I have not been granted permission to post any photographs of the tests, there are public domain sites where you can see what the Badger (as it is called) looks like. The photographs in the links are for the Section Variant, that look very similar to the Mortar Variant.
So join me for a week away from the office, you might be pleasantly surprised.
