Also just wanted to thank Jill Ashwin for helping us and letting us stay at her place to rest up and get supply again for the walk we need for the desert road.

Now we are now on our way walking to Laverton town and mute be off Facebook for about 3 days guys. O.k but see how it go. I well be back on Facebook when I can.


11am

14671363_707576622726143_1019701656111211323_nI get closer and closer everyday to this spot that I screen shot from the computer couple month back. This spot is the last road before it changes to dirt road call the Central Desert Road from Laverton, Warburton and on to Uluru the heart land people. I get closer and closer to the hardest part of the walk and it well be hard because the temperature can get up to 50 degree’s and also negative 7 degrees. But also fire, hot wind and the ground get hot as well. Nature itself is the only thing against me on this center desert road.

Everyone on Facebook, the media, the Government, the nation and the world it self well be watching this part of the walk to see if I can do it or give up and go back to Perth. All eyes well be watching this part of the walk. If I make it or pass it. It well explode all over social media everyone well be talking about it.

I know in my heart I can do this and I well never give up or give in because I choose to believe in my self that I can do this part. The support and the love I get from family, my people, my Friends, the followers, the country and the world it self well give me the strength to push through this part of the walk and to get justice for my people and for this country.

But I think to my self what do people say about me or talk to other about me when I do this part. I know I well go down in the history book, come Australia icon and my people well tell story about me when I’m gone from this earth. But well it change this country to change it way. All I want is for my culture to live on for other 60,000 years or more and think to get better for my people.

But most of all to seen this country come together and seen a Aboriginal leader running this country. But also start working on building a better country and a better world for all life who live on it that share this world with us. But in the end I choose to believe and I well never stop until I see this dream happen when I’m alive.

It was like we was making a movie and I feel that tired I just wanted to go to bed or go to the pub for a beer. But it good NITV are following us and filming the walk. I think they going to made a documentary or mite turn it in to a movie after the walk is finish. Also I just wanted to thank NITV for giving us a satellite phone to help us keep in connected with family and friend because now we a entering the hardest part of the walk that could lead to death or not. But we are ready and cannot wait to start the walk from Laverton on to Warburton.

I’m a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and a Yulparitja man from the West of Australia. I will be walking across country from Matagarup/Heirrison Island in Perth to Parliament House in Canberra, following songlines and visiting communities along the way, where I will eventually be seeking audience with the Prime Minister and address the many injustices against the First Nations people of this land.
