I spoke to Mike this afternoon and he was at the Hopetown Men in Shed's where they may have had to cater for a vegetarian for the first time.

There was a bit of head scratching for a while but all things worked out well in the end and Mike may have even been washing up...

When I spoke to Mike today he was approaching the 5 km mark from Ravensthorpe and the thought of a hot meal, shower and a dry clean bed was getting stronger by the minute.

During the day he met up with a surveyor and the conversation led to Mens Sheds, as it would, and...

Who would have thought that Mike would be spending a night in a freight depot travelling the Highway but that’s exactly what he did.

The owners offered him accommodation but by then Mike had put his tent up inside the depot and thankfully declined.

He is now about 25 km...

Mike had one piece of luck late yesterday when he  came across a shelter, which had toilet facilities so that’s where he decided he would spend the night-out of the rain.

He was able to pitch the tent and dry things a little overnight as can be seen from...

Mikes progress is nowhere what he was hoping it would be, caused by the discomfort felt in his legs and lack of sleep due to the cold.

He is missing his yoga mat which his walking partner, Rob, is sending from Freemantle.

He met up with a French couple who gave him a bla...

Mike and Rob are now about 75 km from Esperance and have stopped for lunch.

Good weather and good company makes this part of the walk enjoyable.

I think Rob leaves Mike tomorrow and heads for home.

Well Mike is on the road again and is currently about50 km from Esperance. At the moment he has a friend walking with him and they have stopped for lunch on a side road just off the highway.

While he was in Esperance he had a couple of visits to the Men's Shed and was m...

Well Mike is back in action again after his relaxing trip to Bali.

On his way to Esperance to resume his walk he is spending the weekend in Denmark and appearing in the Festival of Voice.

He has been singing for quite a while in a group called Voicemale although he is no...

Yesterday I was talking to Mike and he suddenly yelled out that a car almost ran into him.

He certainly sounded rattled and said that the cars left hand wheels were on the dirt so it was a deliberate move to at least frighten him and it certainly did that.

As you can see...

At about 3:30 AEDT,Mike was 12 km out of Cunderdin on his way to Northam, population of about 6,580 as at 2011.

This is what the  view of the Highway is  as he walks along.

Mike visited the Men's Shed at Cunderdin but I don’t think there could have been much activity as...
