End of the road

The littlest brother is reaching the last few metres of his mammoth trek across Oz and finds himself on page 3 of today’s Telegraph. The reactionary sell-out.

Have dutifully bought him a copy while out handing matters of import to the Post Office.

Tom’s been out there since February, which means his mega-epic has lasted about as long as Judge Dredd’s, though without the flying surfboards or evil clones of himself camped inside Uluru. I hope.

Word is he’ll be back in the next few weeks. Which is good as we need someone to babysit the cat.

Today, not being wanted for my cut-and-paste genius, I have written a letter for another brother, posted some things, chased some others, rewritten the beginning of something (or rather, begun to rewrite something) and eaten some Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.

Off now to a leaving do for someone who isn't entirely leaving. The liberty. But curry is included so hooray.

Well the completion of the trek made the evening news here in Australia; having missed two earlier news bulletins I finally caught the story while waiting for some program about Madame de Pompadour...

Hurrah!

BBC news have picked up on the story, too, with video clips and even a link to the story in the China Post.

It's a long way from his days anging about in a Benny...

It also got a very small (one paragraph) write up in two of the Sunday papers over here as well.
