I take my hat off to him. Walking for 7 months already and says he will be in Perth after Christmas. So if by chance you do drive past him give him a wave, stop to say hello or even give him a bottle of water, food or some spare change to help him with raising money for this cause.
He walk across Australia 3 time and this is his last walk across Australia. He about 65 year old and we call him the Forrest gum of Australia. When I met him on the central desert road he told me that I was the first walker i meet on his journey and the youngest one as well. I ask him why are you raising money for leukodystrophy diseases.
