      A very happy new year which as you will have heard was celebrated here in some style by the usual group of renegades,led of course by your folks.Silly games at 2.30am ,and the fact that people were staying the night ment that some heads have only just recovered. I am sure an athelete like you was more sensible! Glad you are getting towards tshirt territory,keep peddling LOL S and S

        Corr blimey they must stink by now!well I decided to hitch hike in India for a section of dangerous roads. When I got off to collect my luggage, 4 bags had disappeared. So I have to rebuild my equipment before I can get back on the road. Might fly to Australia later this summer, maybe see you around!!!!

    YOU ARE LIVING! I sit here in Ingleby Trice Towers in exactly the same place I was when you started this adventure, it’s depressing to think how little i’ve achieved in that time and how much you’ve done so keep it up! Your writing and the photographs are absolutely fantastic! I hope you’re as proud and pleased with what you are doing as I am impressed by it. I’ve just come back form a week skiing with Lamby and we toasted your health on several occassions.

    I’m riding a motorbike across india in from the 11th – 27th september, I’m going the opposite direction to you but if you’re that way then give me a heads up and I’ll make a detour to find you, also let me know in advance if their is anything you’re craving and I’ll bring it or leave it along the way.

    Good luck for the final part of this amazing journey – what you set out to achieve is amazing, and more to the point, I am so jealous that you will be at an Ashes game. Take care across NT, it’s a weird and wonderful place.

    Keep pedalling(and mind the crocs)
