Voyage Interruptus

Dear Friends

Reporting that I have to interrupt my journey for surgery; I have a strangulated hernia that makes it impossible to walk more than a few steps until I can pop it back in; and more painfull than having three children as I told Renee.
This is a minor setback as I will continue the journey from Fitzroy Crossing as soon as I get the all clear after surgery. Providing I am not into the wet season up here I would have to swim with the crocs.

Best regards
Mike Pauly

  5. Hi there Mike. Still keeping tabs on your movements, and copying for Clem, John and Judy, who then passes it on to Val. Sorry to hear of the Health problem, hope it isn’t too incapacitating, and that you get it fixed soon ( and painlessly) (At least it will give the blisters time to HEEL !!!) Keep it up, you are going really well, and it is very interesting to hear about all the various people and nationalities you are meeting along the way. Good luck to you, we do miss the frolics in the pool, which is lovely and warm at present, though they don’t have the Geo-Thermal on yet, some hold up with Western Power apparently. Cheers Bruce.


  6. Dear Mike,

    I am really sorry to hear of your injury. I wish you a successful surgery and a very quick recovery as I don’t want the crocs to have upset stomachs.
