Dick Smith was our guest yesterday evening before he leaves again to continue his expedition in Mongolia and Russia tomorrow!
He is THE Australian adventurer and has been nearly on any place on this planet including the N- and the S-pol! In the early years he was an active scout, became one of the best helicopter pilots and has a very close relationship to nature and sports. We hope that he joins the TOPtoTOP expedition again so that we all can learn more from his experiences and his risk management ideas.

Salina’s 3rd birthday was great and her biggest wish now is to go to school to meet other children!

Tracey McManus, a teacher we met in the school in Lawson, organized the Clown Mic Conway. He was the big surprise for all children invited to the party. Tracey’s husband Peter runs SCRAP; – another very good example in Australia to protect the environment!

Our plan is to visit schools between Sydney and Brisbane next month. Unfortunately we have a major problem with our rigging and we have first to sort that out? If not, we have to cycle and hope to find a solution to visit the schools further up the coast later this year?
