Wednesday 24th – Day 14 Update

by admin on September 24, 2008

Hi, quick update from the side of the road 24 kms out of Kimba.

We did a tough 191 kms yesterday, mostly into a headwind. Today has been 100 kms to lunchtime and we’re just 24 kms out of Kimba (meant to be our stop for the night) – but we’ll push on and get ahead so that the ride into Port Augusta tomorrow is much shorter.

Tomorrow we meet up with Jo and Chris (Support Team # 2) who have driven down from the Gold Coast, and David White from big Brothers Big Sisters Australia.

Looking forward to meeting up.

More later with photos and info.

Hope you’re not missing me too much! Well glad to hear you are struggling !!! You mean Jack did it tough trying to stop himself from being blown backwards!!! Eat some pies boy! So how is the child really going. Sounds like all is going well to be in front of schedule again!Sounds like there hasn’t been any DR – Keep up the good work! Looking good on the girl friend front! They wanted to know if he’s hot? Not sure if I was allowed to comment being related and all. I will show then the video footage tomorrow so maybe by sometime next week they’ll be lining up! Will be in touch. From EM

Hi Brendon and Jack
I’ve been checking in every few days and continue to be in awe of your endurance and enthusiasm. I’ve just got home from an extremely long day at work, fighting a stupid head cold with barely any voice, but it’s absolutely nothing compared to the intensity and challenges involved with what you have been doing for so many days now.
What an incredible adventure. I hope it continues to go well and look forward to catching up again soon.

Way to go – day 14 tomorrow!!!! Half way and oh so strong! Keep it up and know that so many people are watching you conquer your epic journey with feelings of admiration and wonder. You are an inspiration to many Jack Sinclair (and of course we all know “there is only one Brendan Sinclair!!”) Ha ha. Love to you “Supermel” Juls xxx
