Chris and Clark holding their Australian Geographic Spirit of Adventure award - Click for full-size.


Clark Carter and I were recently presented with the Australian Geographic Society's 'Spirit of Adventure' award at a function in Sydney. It was a great evening, good to catch up with many of the Aussie adventurers all in one room. As I said in my 'thanks' speech, I think that Aust Geo deserves the medal really though, for it is AG that keeps the spirit of adventure alive in so many Australians. Goon on you Aust Geo, and thanks!

No matter how you do it, losing weight is an individual thing. Friends can help you but they can't lose the weight for you. You've got to take charge of your weight loss from the beginning if you want to get serious about losing weight. The following tips will help.
