Battle of Attrition in the South

I got a strange question from both of my principal's parents the other day as I walked to their shop. I stopped by for some soda, milk and eggs and talked with Pauline's father on the way in and her mother while in the shop.

After a some time in the conversations, talking about how things were during the day, both of them (uncannily...) asked me if I was lonely. Upon clarification, they meant because a lot of volunteers have left the region. While walking back to my flat, listening to my iPod, it struck me. In January 2006 there were eight group 25ers within 80km of my site. As of now, only three remain.
