I agree 100% with the wheel chair thing, we all dodge the bullet everyday and some are just unlucky.

Will do a donation when I get to Perth

Thank you Richard.

I have to say it was certainly a massive challenge both physically and mentally. I felt privileged just to be able to stand up at the end of the day! Not even considering what we get to experience in the bush most weekends!

I had a close call with a compund lumbar fracture years before tRicky and orenteering. Scary thing is if you took a look at my fracture you would see a shard of vertebrae only 2mm away from cutting my spinal chord. #lucky and I try not to think about it too much.

A worthy cause Brycec and I don't think I'd be able to endure thinking the 'what if'.

I was in an industrial accident in 1973 just after I left University and cracked a vertebrae. Three people died in the scene. Was working as a labourer building a motorway bridge and the structure collapsed when the concrete was being poured. Still remember it like yesterday!
