An update on Mike……..

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.

  2. Hi Mike.. So shocked when Pura said you left on your walk. Can’t believe it has been two years since we walked together in your group. I guessI was pretty busy in 2012-2013 with the Camino in Spain then on to Italy for more walking and travel the time just flew !!! Sorry I have never gotten back to you… Just a bit hung up on life…
    Wonderful hearing of your plans though and asked for your information so I could see where you are. Please take care of yourself and know we are all thinking about you and wish you all the joys of walking….and you know what they are. Much love, peace and laughter along the way my friend. Cheers Barbara Butler
