Chris and Len have a history of endurance adventures including ultra marathons, adventure races and together in 2010, a kayak crossing of Bass Strait. They undertake these adventures to break out of their everyday synchrony, exceed their perceived limits and to feed their paleolithic, caveman instincts.

This adventure is inspired by the Westfield Sydney to Melbourne races held between 1983 and 1991, at the time, one of the toughest in the world. The idea to follow in these footsteps will however only be 3 weeks old when Chris and Len set-off. But an inspiring idea and two weeks of annual leave is an opportunity, by their own account, not to be lost.

Lastly, please consider these two thoughts: 1. the loss of biodiversity on Earth threatens life as we know it - it threatens supplies of fresh water, food, medicine, clothing, housing and the viability of oxygen-producing forests. 2. Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew predict that one fifth of all plant species are at imminent risk of extinction. Chris and Len, both with science background are really hoping to make a positive impact on this situation. They seeking to use their love of adventure to raise a very modest $2,000 needed to save one of Australia’s rarest plant and one they will pass near on the Hume Highway, the Grevillea iaspicula.

Pink Shirts and Love Triangles

This morning Len and I went on an field trip to the Royal Botanic Gardens to get in touch with our plant-side.  We met some of the staff there along with a eucalyptus tree which looked like it needed some love (no doubt due to it's love triangle predicament with only 3 of the species left).

Up top you will see us modelling the new exclusive range of pink RBG Bicentenary shirts. Suitably high-viz for highway wear.  Mega food shop tonight then only 2 more sleeps.  I'm just starting to feel a buzz!


  1. Update please

    The state you boys must already be in makes my complaints about spending a Sunday night studying for exams significantly less poignant.

    Hope all is good


  2. That is my first time I have visited here I like This Design and cool color thanks for sharing such nice combination colored shirts.
