    This is wonderful Mike.. Beautifully presented & spoken luvie!! Had a little giggle at Ross’ “hard year”… Probably for the best that he didn’t want to commit to spending that much time away from his gals given our turn of events! Lol (Still no arrival of your neice yet). Has been a hard year.. But we’ve come out the end of it stronger than ever – love your lil brother so much!!! We’re both really proud of all you’ve achieved Mike & hope it’s everything you’ve dreamed it will be… Can’t wait to follow the journey!! Lotsa love from us all xoxoxo

    There’s a man who’s leading a team of driven men that have taken nothing for granted.
    The dedication is exceptional, although I was never going, I recieved many of those training texts and thought ‘are you nuts?’.
    Perhaps we could say there goes A League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
    Enjoy the mateship, the rewards of all the hardwork, scenery and local culture, you have certainly earnt it.

    well said mike as much as all our comments may help you guys, your journey does so much for those watching like me 🙂 thank you so much for sharing a special thing in your life safe trip …when the steps get hard dont forget the little red engine……..
    ” One day the Little Red Engine was puffing its way along the railway lines when it realised it would have to climb a steep hill. The only way it could tackle the hill would be if the Little Red Engine sang its special song. It took a deep breath and started to chug in time to the words of the song, “I-think-I-can. I-think-I-can. I-think, I-think-I-can …”

    Partway up, it saw Big Blue Engine completely stuck and unable to move backwards or forwards. Little Red Engine was too heavy for the step climb. It wasn’t very happy when it saw the Little Red Engine succeeding where it had failed.

    Little Red Engine was a kind little engine and stopped to ask if it could help. Somehow it managed to fix itself to the front couplings of Big Blue Engine and told it to take off its brake. This was going to be difficult. Little Red Engine needed a very special song this time! “I-know-I-can. I- know -I-can. I- know, I- know -I-can …”

    may the bond of friendship between you guys be each others engines when you need it and remember back home we all “know you can”
    safe trip Louise

      Hi Roz & Eddy

      I will let Mike know about the 50 comment Eddy – I am sure he will appreciate it. All going well only a few headaches. The boys have stolen Mike’s razors so he is not happy. Can’t wait to see the photos – in our 23 years together I have never seen him with a little bit of stubble let alone a whole beard thingy!
