So I went in to Valhalla Tactical & Outdoor, a military supply store, to pick up the gear I will need for THE BIG WALK.
The guy who assisted me (Brendan) was phenomenal. What a Legend. Generous with his time, expert on the product lines, and full of useful advice for what might or might not be helpful if you set out on a Mad Quest like mine.
He was also welcoming and embraced my BIG WALK, or at least showed such a high level of tolerance toward my unusual line of questions that I felt welcomed and supported.
I have pretty much everything I need now. The boots in particular feel great, like a second skin. This weekend I will focus on pulling the new uniform together.
It will look a lot more practical, and military-themed than the original version of Captain Australia, but I think my undertaking is more authentic and sincere now. Before, I didn’t quite know what Captain Australia was for, I just knew it was to combat a growing darkness in the world.
Now, I realise Captain Australia has saved my life. Helped me fight back from Stage 4 cancer, taking great strength from the idea of being of service, taking what was a broken down old man, and making him useful again, to help those poor beleaguered kids facing up against the same kind of ordeal I had to face.
