  5. Also, tips on the Boxing Day dip: Wear every piece of neoprene you can possibly lay hands on. Rash vest underneath, wetsuit, wetsuit jacket, neoprene socks, neoprene boots, neoprene hood, neoprene gloves, you get the idea.


  6. I’m up for the swimming with sharks 🙂


  7. Thanks Ken. Do you have any pictures of you with the teddy bear in Alice Springs? I’m still trying to decide which book to leave as I want something I love but that will appeal to a range of people.
