Minus 3 days

This week has been one of gathering the things together I need.eg.  an IPood – which is a small light weight digging tool and  I’ll spare you the details.
Bought bowl and cup. Took the Goretex coat in for repair and; they said it wasn’t worth fixing. Bought a Macpac raincoat not quite as good as the last but will serve the purpose.Got the best discount I could considering they could not contact their office in New Zealand.

Andrew valiantly tried to send the eperb but bureaucracy got in the way. Macca may have some influence with Optus and get the satellite phone again.

Had an interview with a reporter of the Sunday Sun Herald.  He told us we will have an article in tomorrow’s edition. His name is James Campbell.
Will ring Macca in the morning and let him know about the talk at 11.00am Sunday at “The Soul Food Cafe”” at St David’s. 

Neil Arrowsmith fixed a few things on my buggy “George 2” and drove me to Bunnings, Ray’s Outdoors and a safety shop to buy a few things like lights and hats and safety gear. He also fixed the high visibility flag.  Neil and Helen were both very generous with their time.

Best regards to our followers.


About afwa0987

On the 16th May 2009 sixty-nine year old osteoarthritis sufferer, Mike Pauly, set off from his home in East Fremantle on a lone journey walking across the Nullarbor in a bid to raise funds and awareness for Arthritis. He completed the epic 3617km walk unaided. In 2011 he will walk again – this time from Melbourne to Perth. Mike will be pushing all his food, water, clothes and tent in a customised baby buggy and will camp out for 70% of the trip. He will experience the extremes of the Nullarbor and will walk a minimum of 30 km per day. After being diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both knees as a result of being overweight, Mike started walking. After reading Deanna Sorenson’s account of walking unsupported across the Nullarbor, Mike decided he would walk from his home in Fremantle to Federation Square Melbourne via Coolgardie before his 70th birthday in a bid to raise funds and awareness for Arthritis WA.
