After my test walk to the Gold Coast, I resolved to spend the two weeks with my kids (making the most of school holidays, and also allowing my blisters to heal up).
But as they say “the best laid plans of mice and men gang aft astray”. I had to go into the city for a dentist appointment on monday to repair radiation damage to my teeth.
I figure when I’m out and about in public, I really should be dressed up as the boofhead superhero Captain Australia. It’s practice with the gear, and the streams, in advance of THE BIG WALK (26.12.21), but with the big magic banner I carry, I’m also a walking billboard for the charity (The Kids’ Cancer Project).
So today, I went to walk the dog, and realised I needed to gear up, so instead of innocent citizen Simon taking a walk with his good mate Harry, it was the boofhead superhero Captain Australia.
If you haven’t seen it, the Channel 10 tv show THE PROJECT did a marvelous story about my Mad Quest. I think they were very kind, and got the tone of what I’m trying to do just right. If you click on the logo to the left, it should take you to the story, if you’d like to watch.
