Phil out training for his Trek yesterday with Susan in St Kilda, clocking up the kilometres (nearly 30k) for the day. They visited the Bright 'N Sandy Festival in Brighton before heading back home to Port Melbourne. Windy, cool weather but a great full day's walk.
Met Campbell, Phil & Simon & their sons, (who have studied all about the intrepid explorers of 1860 at school) All were very interested in Burke & Wills & also the Fred Hollows Foundation. Simon's father having worked with Fred.
Boys also interested to hear about Phil's entry into the Guinness Book of Records with his feats on the Penny Farthing 30 years ago. Riding around the coast of Australia and riding 512 km in 24 hours.
