Port Augusta!

Well, so far traveled about 1800 kms through some of the wildest terrain I could imagine! Was a hard drive to Adelaide from Sydney, but Tom and I made it here safely. We picked up the first of 2 of our extended team! Ken from the Queens Solar Vehicle Project is joining us and lending us a hand. It's awesome to have help from fellow Ontario schools!

Just something I thought I would share. This weekend is a 10 year reunion from my senior public school (Fairwind SPS in Mississauga). Obviously, I'm going to be missing this one, but I'm hoping some of those folks will stop by this site and say hello! It's amazing that back then was when I first became involved with extra curricular activities. I was involved with the environment club thanks to a awesome teacher, Mitch Zuk. He actually could be the one to thank for me being involved in solar car raycing. During some tough years when I was a kid back then, he gave me some sound advice, he told me that no matter what happens, always stay busy, always stay active in sports, and clubs. His thought was that if you stay involved in activities, you always have somewhere to go to keep you out of trouble. I couldn't believe how right he was! He became a true friend to me during those years and it was the reason I am where I am today. I'm sure of it!!! Thanks Mr. Zuk!

That's all for now.....
