Mike is about 50km west of Port Hedland. Due to technological difficulties, he can’t produce a blog until he arrives there tomorrow. Here is some info about how he’s going.
The knees are some better as he has lost 17 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) kilos. He feels he’d like to lose another 8. Let us hope he doesn’t end up anorexic.
He is sleeping a quite a bit but last night he was in a 24-hour stopover and some young blokes celebrated a birthday with lots of loud music so today he’s pretty tired. But he admits that at that age, he’d have been one of the party.
He has been on “Australia all Over” and ‘Macca’ has joked that he might come out and walk with him – for about10 minutes.
I don’t think Mike sets a fast pace but he’s like the tortoise – slow and steady. And you know who won the race in the end. Mike even keeps walking when he telephones.
