Update on Preparation
People have been stopping me asking “so how are you going with the prep”, “well done on the fund raising” so I thought I’d give you a little update.
Firstly, I’d like to thank all who have donated to the Black Dog Institute through my fund raising drive. I set a personal goal of $3000 and with all you wonderful people, my tally is sitting at $2600 at the moment. Hopefully with 7 weeks to go, I’ll hit the goal.
How’s everything else going, pretty good!! I’m finally back in the saddle for short stints and as you do, pushing the boundaries. Fingers crossed my fitness continues to improve.
The trip home from Glen Helen Resort was finalised today….YAY!!! I have to thank a few people for their input and guidance on this one though – Paul, Mick, Jeff, Dad & John.
Now I’m in the process of booking the accomodation for the home trip. The funny bit is ringing some of these places and chatting to them. Some places are in the back of no where and the blokes that answer the phone well are…..(use your imagination). The phrase “how ya goin’ darl”, “na love”, “we gotta a bed in the room & if ya lucky ya might ‘ave a shower” all in that aussie drawl have been my favourites to chuckle at after I hang up. So with a bit of luck and more google research that’ll be nutted out in a week or so.
Will work on some maps so y’all can see where I’m going and can relate as the journey grows while I’m on the road.
That’s it for now.
