CF Art Exhibition in Hobart

At the Salamanca Arts Centre the CF Association of Tasmania has a temporary art exhibiton where the proceeds go to CFTAS. I have many photos printed and framed here as well, of which I am very proud! Wayne Enright kindly printed and framed them for me.

Welcome to our little exhibition upstairs!

See these beautiful photos on the wall? They are not mine! They are Meredith Garrett's photos! 

Wayne and Meredith mentioned above are both people with CF who had a lung transplant! Are you an organ donor yet??

65 Roses Day

65 Roses day, Friday 28 May, will soon be upon us. 65 Roses day is the National Cystic Fibrosis Day, and time to give generously to the many collectors you should see in town - wherever you are. Monies raised go to the state CF Associations and directly benefits people with CF in your state. I can personally vouch for their incredible support!

I will be talking to Rosny College in Hobart on Thursday, and in the Rooke Street Mall in Devonport on Friday 11am-2pm and again in Hobart for the Art Exhibition at Salamanca place on Sunday 31 May where I am exhibiting some of my photography! At all these venues I will have with me the new Borneo Postcards free to give away, but will also carry the books/DVDs from my cycling adventure!

Here is a nice (but sad) poem about 65 Roses - CLICK.

Training in Papua New Guinea

Running with the Hash House Harriers is the ideal way to keep me fit when home or abroad. As you know the Hash House Harriers play a great role in the Expedition as all climbers will be Tasmanian Hash House Harriers: Thrust, Swallow & Portholes, Prickit & Can't Stop, Koala Blair, Smallgoods, Scary, Snack Bar & Milky Bar, Dirty Dero Dave, Edna, Ringo AND Walter himself who is known as Gone Again in the HHH world!

Right now Walter is in Papua New Guinea visiting friends and training in the tropical climate not unlike Borneo. Maintaining his fitness with the Moresby Hash. Pictured above is a Moresby Hash House Harrier climbing through a settlement in Konedobu in Port Moresby.

NB: Running with the Hash is not competitive and is lots of fun. Usually accompanied by a quick meal and a few refreshing ales.
