It’s 710pm Monday the 10the May 2021.
Hi fine folk. I’m camped at the Showgrounds in Morven. It’s a popular spot for travellers. There were sheep dog trials happening when I arrived. I spoke to one of the local fellas competing and he said it’s an annual event over three days in Roma, Morven and Charleville tomorrow. This dogs were so handsome and lean and clearly loving putting their skills to the test for their farmer. Very cool.
There’s also good phone reception which is great. I have two radio interviews in the morning which I’m super excited about.
The first interview is for ABC radio Brisbane with Craig and Loretta Brakfast show. They will call at 550am and it should take about 5minutes. The second interview is at 8am with Mark Bensted at radio 8CCC Alice Springs. I think that will be 830 my time in Qld as NT is half hour behind. I’ll post how that goes tomorrow but I’m hoping this publicity will inspire folk to donate to a great cause and help us reach our fundraising goal for Beyond Blue.
I’ve been thinking today about why I’ve taken on this challenge.
I believe that anything is possible if I put my mind to it. Taking on the 10 desert challenge will stretch me not only physically but also mentally, socially and spiritually. All these parts of myself are interconnected and when they’re working well together I experience a flow of energy and excitement to tackle each step as it comes. I thrive on this positivity and know anything is possible with this mindset. Fundraising for Beyond Blue contributes to a bigger purpose that matters and keeps each day in perspective through the ups and downs.
Time for dinner and bed as I have to get up at early o’clock in the morning. Talk soon xx
