The end of an era..


A great article on the iPod, by Mat Honan from Wired.

I remember buying my first iPod, an original 5Gb, for around $600. Worth every cent.

Bibbulmun, Take 2


So we had this crazy idea.. well Legs did, that we should walk the Bibbulmun again. This time we would walk from Kalamundu to Mundaring Weir and back to Kalamunda. A round trip of nearly 40km on paper. Thank fuck it was less than that, but it still nearly killed us.

Legs picked me up at 5.30am, and we were on the trail at 6.00am. We were in high spirits as we walked the winding trail. Laughing and singing. Singing and laughing. We made the weir in good time, enjoyed a spot of lunch and started back to Kalamunda.

Around the 23km mark our little stroll turned into A DOUR BATTLE BETWEEN MAN AND NATURE. There is no sadder sight than two grown men pulling themselves up stone stairs with their sissy sticks. Suffice to say, we were so sore by the end that we could barely walk into Hungry Jacks for afternoon tea.

Don’t forgot that you can sponsor this insanity. No refunds.

Expensive shoebox

How to fill a shoebox in the most expensive way possible..

I’d fill it with food purchased at the airport.

Trek training


So people keep asking me how my training for the trek is going, as if they somehow can’t tell from my finely chiseled physique?!

It’s going great. Legs has drawn up a comprehensive training program of which I regularly complete 10 to 15 percent. Tonight I knocked off 10 Kokodas. It was a little disheartening that most people were running up and down the fucking thing but there is an ancient Nepalese proverb:

Khane mukhlai junggale chhekdaina.

Roughly translated, it means: You might as well take your time, because you’re probably going to pass out from altitude sickness in Tengboche.​

That’s not a spork..


I might need one of these to eat my lentils on the trek.

My favourite fielder.


Reminds me of some of my own fielding prowess.
