End of week 4 :-/

Actually: ‘Start of week 5’ but yesterday marked the end of a pretty hectic weekend so this wee blog got bumped onto today’s ‘Todoos’, sorry folks 😛

So…An epic week for the Road to Change, beginning in York at the Transcendental Meditation weekend (which I recommend to all, especially survivors www.tm-meditation.co.uk) along with that mad seven day Juicefest which both finished on Monday…Thank God…I came home feeling like a different person, and kinda looking like one too…

DSC_0599York is beautiful. I’ve hadn’t been there in 19 years and I was a kid last time to I didn’t realise how charming it is…I don’t say charming much, so it clearly must be…Summer 1994, I was in primary seven, first time away from my Mum, ever. I was scared. I was eleven, I was cheeky, I talked a lot but I was a really wee kid. I was really nervous, going to be away from my mum for the longest time ever. The school had rented out the entire hotel and I shared a room with three boys in my Class. But despite how scared I was, I remember being happy that my Uncle wouldn’t be able to touch me for a whole week…I couldn’t have imagined back then that one day I’d be gearing up for an 18 month walk around counties I had never heard of, to help raise awareness about what my uncle was doing to me. I’m sure wee me wouldn’t believe it.

Great news!!! We welcome some new volunteers to the RTC team 🙂

268782_10150281445027463_6588561_nAmanda Thompson, who filmed and edited the wee video on the home page is coming on board in a few rolls. She’s been calling all kinds of companies for sponsorship, European Press Offices and countless other wee tasks that need doing in the set up to this epic undertaking. On top of that, she’s studying for a theory test to qualify her to drive a Motorhome as she is (drumroll please) The Driver of the Motorhome on the Road To Change!!! Very excited to have her on board, and can’t thank her enough for going through all these blooming Rabies and Tic vaccines to keep us safe on the 10,000miles road…

 

 

 

 

We have Edward M Smith in da house…

539358_10151191102852209_2064827025_nEd (Award-winning film maker, Director, Producer) not only directed and produced ‘To Kill a Kelpie’ the Movie, he’s stepped up to help secure the Motorhome. Having approached 200 dealers, rental agents and manufactures to no avail, I figured it’s time I get my big brother to sort them out…the man knows how to haggle…

 

 

 

 

 

We got Mojo!!!

DSC_0251Mojo is the designer of www.roadtochange.eu and many other awesome websites you’ve been on that you probably didn’t realise he designed. He’s also my big brother (handy family…I know right) Mojo is creating a new site to assist the distribution and access of the Kelpie Movie, while also continually creating new functions on this site. He’s be heading up the bakesale at the Road to Change Garage sale later this month, and you don’t want to miss his buns, so get yours along…

Also!!!! Susan Smith

She has an ability find the best deals online, which is perfect for all the travel insurance, foreign medical cards, telecom packages and the million other wee details involved in simply walking 10,000miles…plus Squeezie has a telephone voice that can make people take us seriously 🙂

Nothing is too tricky for these guys, and I know the walk will be a huge success thanks to there help…and wouldn’t be possible without them. We still need to source a lot of money, I have a lot of training to do and the clock is ticking.

 

 

The Road to Change begins in 31 days!!! I only wish ‘wee me’ was here to see it…

 

Thanks for reading, share and geeza few quid too 😛
