Sausage Sizzles along the route.

August 25, 2012
Sadly there has been little support from people approached along the route for fundraising opportunities so we decided to approach butchers alon the route as we go up to hold sausage sizzles maybe we can raise some funds that way.

I must say a big thank you to Cheryl and Steve who have orrganised a launch at their own home and have provided the food as a sponsorship Cheers my two wonderful friends.

We understand that LJ Hookers Port Douglas are organising a walkathon to run along the day I start walking thank you guys?

All my friends out there have a great weekend. 
 

Getting close.

August 25, 2012
Well have had a good days training today 17km spread over the gym and road 8km interval training on the treadmill then 9km on the road over 2 hours so feel great.
Still no response from the local newspapers along the route plus no response from schools to talk to about bullying.
I am convinced that the time on the road will generate interest however we do have Greg Carey morning radio on side and he has indicated we will talk in the next 2 weeks hope so need funds for food and suppliments and f...

Never Never Give Up.

Three statements made by others in my early Life unfortunately shaped the future " Be Careful what you say to You Children".The first was " You will never Drive" The second " You will never ammount to anything ". The third was " You are a waste of space".

knee problem

August 11, 2012
After doing 8km yesterday although there was some pain during the walk I have not woke up with any discomfort so the anti inflamatory treatment is working GREAT.

We are only 6 weeks out from the begining and I do feel a a little aprehensive because of the time lost with the foot and knee issues but as my good friend Peter Why told me back on my first walk in 1990 " Just put one foot in front of the Other".

I can only imagine how my inspirational mentor who I never met by the way Terry Fox felt ...
