    Hi everyone,

    just to let you know that this weekend a group of us are working together to break a current Aussie World Record and to raise money for Careflight Australia. Careflight are the people that get called out for emergency evacs and rescue.

    So from Friday 6th May noon till Sunday noon our guys will be walking underwater in teams non-stop!

    well its past 11pm here and the hard part is happening - getting thru the night

    we have walkers sleeping, sleep walking and lots of laughing

    cant wait for daylight to come... things always seem easier in the bright warm daylight

    cheers
