I’m more excited than a Bull in a paddock full of Cows

Yep, I’m pumped and excited!

I have spent the last week climbing in New Zealand’s Southern Alps with Dean Staples, an accomplished high altitude climber who has been to the top (and back) of Mount Everest eight times.

The opportunity to spend time under Dean’s guidance has been a great opportunity for me and there is much to write about…

But I need to get through Tough Mudder first which is being held to the north of Sydney tomorrow…

They say running 20 kilometres, being zapped by 10,000 volts, jumping through burning hay bales, after swimming in ice cold water is fun – I’m hoping so!

And if I manage to get through tomorrow I’ll be heading to Yasawa Island, situated in Fiji, with Janet and TomO this coming Sunday, so I’ll catch up with you from there!

    You are a mad-man! But Love it! Go for it, have fun and stay ‘safe’doing so! Yasawa, Sydney and NZ brings back a whole lot of wonderful memories! Thanks for sharing!
    And remember what Master Jodi said (Star Wars):”There is NO trying, only doing!”
    Looking forward to see the picture with you on top of your FIRST 8ooo meter conquest!!!
