Kind of ironic now, that I did this ride because I have one of my mates that is in a real bad way with Prostate Cancer. He is currently back in hospital, after being at the Cancer Research Centre yesterday. They are starting another round of Chemo with some new drug trial, pretty much a last ditched effort to save him I think because he now has a tumor growing on his spine that will paralyze him. :(

Yeah old road with the support car behind ( they wanted to be in front of us for the ride but I said nup behind us,don't want someone running into us)and Rocky to Mackay was the old road to with the Mt Range. We got into trouble here from the support crew because they couldn't keep up with us on the decent down to Sarina. :lol:

Thanks Apple. :(

I don't want to make you feel old, but it was on my 3rd birthday exactly, when you departed.

You are not old foo, you are distinguished and a fit strong man with endurance. Lump a charcoal is a sperm. :mrgreen: I am sure this sperm will also become a distinguished Gentleman :D

Hahahaha that's funny Apple, if only I was fit :( and thank you Apple, that's a nice statement. :mrgreen:

Bloody tadpoles but you have to admit LOC, it is a good feeling when you finish because if nothing else in your life, you can always look back on it and think, well I did something positive to help others. :idea:
