How to make a million bucks!

Postby ColinOldnCranky » Sun Dec 01, 2013 9:47 am

A million! Easy. Just ride 15,000km across and around Australia for eight months, set a new mark on the list of world records and love someone greatly.

Oh, did I mention that he has to ride it on a unicycle?

Yep - sum's up Samuel Johnsons epic.

On his way to the target distance he has just recently passed the other target - raised $1m for the Garvin fund for cancer research.

By my reckoning, when he arrives back in Fed Square in Melbourne in January he could manage around $1.3m.

Which is pretty hefty. Even more when considering that unicycling are not exactly on everyones radar.

Well done Samuel. It can't have been easy.

If you haven't any idea what I am talking about, or you haven't yet chipped in, head on over to http://www.loveyoursister.org/

A big plus in all this is that it looks like Connie will be around to celebrate the end of the journey. That was a big unknown at the start.

My wife has been following this on Facebook. What an effort!!

A real champion bloke, and he didn't need to kick a football or win a grand final...

Thanks for the update Colin.
We were able to meet up and speak with Sam when he came through here.
Certainly a wonderful effort for a great cause.
