14330044_10154105986872800_5720828681497079114_nHey guys,

Lots of you have been asking where Clinton is at the moment, where he plans to walk to next and what the route he’s taking is. I’ve put together these timesheets for the next week and am working on adding an updated full route post for you ASAP.

As most of you know, the dates on the original Timesheet Post have been pushed back one week.

Please note that dates and places are at our best guestimation and may not be accurate and are subject to change. Clinton may decide to stop early at a different town or spend a day resting up somewhere. We will endeavour to keep you updated via the Facebook Group and I will try and do a new weekly schedule each week for you to track his progress.

Thanks for all your messages of support, we all really enjoy reading them! Keep em coming!

The Route So Far

Perth to Kellerberrin
Matargarup to Kellerberrin is 199kms in one week!

Matargarup to Kellerberrin timesheet

Next Week…

Merredin to Kalgoorlie
Kellerberrin to Kalgoorlie is 389kms! That’s almost double week one!

As you can see, we’ve been extremely generous for the next week or so and it is most likely that this will take longer than we think. Please stay tuned for updates!
