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.

He said that his wife had it and she pass away from having it. So he doing it for her and try help and save other who got it. So please if you see him help him please give him so think to help want he need to finish his walk to Perth and money to help him raise for leukodystrophy.
