Yesterday was,arguably, one of the best days of my life. Certainly one of the busiest.
Without Ros and Joanne and Rodney I could not have done it. They stuck with me throughout the entire craziness of it. Together we did it.
Special thanks as well to Tanya Smith from Parks Victoria who was to blame for the media stuff.
|9 am Radio interview for Ros and me with Natasha Mitchell on Life Matters, Radio National. 16 minutes of easy, informative banter about our TrailRider story.|
What knocked our socks off was the care and consummate professionalism of their preparation the day before. 45 minutes of pre-interview.
|2:30 pm Interview with ABC Radio Canberra. Tanya found us a quiet room and I had the unusual experience of doing a radio interview with a live audience in the room with me.|
Because we are heading to Tidbinbilla on our way south for a TrailRider Sherpa Volunteer event I made sure that word was often mentioned.
I'll post the interview when I get a copy.
|5 pm The Big One! A plenary session - the Adventurers Panel A ramp up to stage level meant that I could line up in the TrailRider.Ros sat beside me to manage, and hand me my papers so that I could stay on track. |
Extremely pressed for time and I blew a large part of mine showing Wild Places. A specially prepared 2GB version looked amazing on the 10 metre high screens
|6 pm Bill Jackson again launching the pop-up park that Parks Victoria had set up in the Exhibition area.|
The designers were there. They turned out to be colleagues of Flynn's and explained the thinking behind the design.
