Update: Keeping busy
Sorry guys, it’s been a while – so much has been happening!
A couple of weeks after returning from Antarctica we headed over to Thailand for Cas’ wedding. It was incredible – absolute paradise, oh.. and the climbing was pretty good as well! (Jonesy jumping in here – Cas is probably one of the only people to do multi pitch climb on the morning of his wedding!) – New Idea ran an exclusive story on the wedding which can be viewed HERE
Our bodies are recovering albeit slower than we’d like. It took us a good nine months to recover after the Tasman Crossing in 2008, so we’re trying to remain patient. Jonesy’s finger tips are still a little numb (nerve damage takes a long time to recover), Cas’ face has some scaring and we’re both feeling constantly fatigued – Antarctica took a lot out of us.
We’re flat stick at the moment- pedal to the floor! Cas is writing the book about the expedition (Check out the front cover of the book below and let us know your thoughts!) and Jonesy is producing the documentary. Both are due for release in a few months time- August 2012. We’re also doing a heap of Corporate Speaking and sharing our presentation to audiences all over the place. If you’d like to book us for a presentation enquiries can be made here. Later in the year, we’re planning to do a series of public presentations all around Australia which we’ll be sure to let you know about.
We’re still in regular contact with Aleks Gamme who has turned into a friend for life. We shared a bond in Antarctica that we don’t think’ll ever be broken. We’re hoping the rasta-Norweigan will make it over to Australia some time soon.
That’s about all for now- speak soon!
