Dry July

Dry July

Why Not? For the month of July I will stay alcohol and coffee free. I figured it would not only raise a bit of cash for Cancer research but keep me fresh too. More than 2000 Kiwis chose to stay off the booze last July and gathered $550,000 in donations that helped Auckland Hospital’s oncology department purchase 30 purpose-built chemotherapy chairs, install free wi-fi and buy 70 TVs for patients.

As many of you now know because of the solo Kidney I am much more aware of diet and drinking, so this is yet another step in the direction of healthy living. Both friends and family of mine and perhaps yours have been affected by the draining results of Chemo Therapy… Please take a moment to click on the link and see my progress towards Dry July, thanks!

Enjoying the coastal life.

Colin, Warrick and I flew West, with the help of our pilot, Hugh. The plan was only to spend a couple of nights in a very cool place on the coast, however it turned into a week of excellent times. The King Tide and gnarly weather forced us to stay a few extra days… Cheers Warrick! Awesome.
