Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.

For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

There are a number of points where you can drive to join the course and give me a wave, a cheer/jeer or walk along for a while (walking will be at your own risk – I have to wear a hi-vis vest and use a head torch at night, I know the route in detail; quick walking in the day and slower during the night). Give me a ring on 0417436877, or check my Twitter feed or Facebook page.
