We want to thank Trent for his incredible generosity, if you pop over to his page you can see his designs and maybe start to plan your own .
Keep checking in our Facebook page, this is one auction worth bidding in.

If we don’t start fighting back against this corporate government in Australia and thought the world.
We well be fully under control and our rights well be taking away has human. It is time we start standing together to fight for what right and for right for every human thought out Australia an around the world. This world we live in well never be the same, if we let them get away with it and divided us. But together we can make this right for our country and for the world it self.

Hey guys quick update. Just letting you know the car is fix and we are ready to go to get back into the walk again. But before we start the walk again towards port August way. The team and I have decided today that we should visit one more APY community call MiMili. Mimili community is about 100km west from Marla roadhouse it is where APY women council group is. I have decided that I should see the APY women council group and have a meeting with them before I head south.
I have had meeting none stop with a lot of man group in community on this walk and had meeting with some of the women group. But this is a time where I can set down and listing and understand the APY elderly women council group from the central desert on what they want for they people and understand what is need done in APY community in the central desert. It is also about asking the APY women council group from the central desert to get support for the walk. I be having a meeting Tomorrow with APY women council group and Elders in MIMIli community.
Day 123: 7pm
The Mimili Community, the car gets a good reception, with Clinton talking to the Community people. The sun set and the moon rise is on top of rock hills around the Community. I was ready to walk down after the sun set, when I turned around and the moon was half up, it reminded me of the moon at Uluru. I like this journey. – Noonie
Day 123: 7pm

Mimili – Garry
Day 123: 7.30pm
The one think I have notest out in community is the way how my people look after the wildlife and do what best to help save animals like horse, dingo and other animal you can name in Australia. We as a people of the land who been living here for 100,000 years love taking care of it and know what need to be done to help the land and wildlife it self.
PS this baby horse was all a long out in the Bush not far from the community. So the women group got together and when out to save this baby horse and do what best to help other wild life who need help out in the desert area.

Day 121: 12pm
[Admin Gee] Great article on Croaky by Melissa Sweet mentioning Clinton:
“Think of the courage shown by individuals like Clinton Pryor, a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and Yulparitja man, who is making a long walk for justice from Perth to Canberra, protesting about the closure of remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia, amongst other things.
As I read about his journey to date – at his website and ABC – I imagined, what if…
…what if other people, in other places and other countries, followed in his footsteps? What if Clinton’s long walk was just the beginning of many other such transformative journeys?
There is nothing like a long walk for bringing clarity to confused thoughts and agendas, and for connecting us with what matters most.”
Hey guys quick update just letting you know we just reach Marla roadhouse about 160km from the boarder of Northern Territory the first road house we got to in South Australia. We got a bit of a set back the weather up this way on top of South Australia is really hot and the car has being playing up. The water pump in the engine of the car is broken and now has a hole in it. So that mean our engine has being over heating and we cannot go a head down south with out fixing it.
Also on top the roof rake on the trailer has broken down and falling on the trailer and that need fixing to and we don’t have no spree tyres. But thank to APY community Indulkana we when to see just than have allow us to use they work shop to fix the water pump in the engine and fix up the roof rake and also giving us three new tyres for free. We a going to stay over night at the marla roadhouse and tomorrow go out to Indulkana community to fix the car up.
I just wanted to thank APY Indulkana community for allowing us to use the work shop and giving us a helping hand to fix the car up and giving us three new tyres. Thank you Indulkana community.

Day 122: 4pm
It been a very busy day today everyone was working hard on the car and the trailer to get think done and ready to head south. The new tyres are on, widow is fix and the rake on the trailer is fix. The only think left now is to fix the water pump in the engine. Once the water pump is fix than we can get back into the walking heading towards port August way. I feel good doing a good day of working hard. Now it time to relax and have something to eat and have a beer after hard day of working.
Day 122: 5.30pm
Half way there still got another 2, 530km* to go to reach the end of this journey I when on. This journey I went on with Garry and Noonie well always be with me when I finish it and for the days of my life until I get old. I know people have being waiting on me to start speaking the truth. But I waiting until the right time because I’m enjoying what I’m seeing out here on the land and out in the bush because I’m with my ancients and my people learning and understand what need to people done for my people and for the wildlife. Port August is where I well speak and how I’m going to move this country forward.
This walk I’m on is more than me it is about all of us and it about how we can make this right. I have walk and walk on this land within my ancient foot steps and seen thought they eyes how they live of the land and how they live free for over 100,0000 until Western came here and change our way of life. Now I understand why my ancient showing me thought the spirit fire to walk a cross the country. When I was on heirisson island in Perth fighting to stop community to be closure down and for the homeless to get home. My ancient wanted me to do this because to end the sufficient, pain and save my culture from dieing out and bring this country together.
This country is ready to make it right because the people out there on this land we share and my people wanted change but didn’t know how to bring us together and have being yelling for it. But thought this walk has made it happen, there all different culture people in this country and around the world watching this walk. This walk was never about me, it about bring us together and putting our difference to the side because we all wanted the same think and that is to live happen, free and make the world a better place.
