HOPE IN A BOAT NEWS
The mission to tow a boat behind a motorcycle all the way
around Australia to raise money for diabetes research
connued in 2016, this me we would go an clockwise
and arrangements were made to go to Tasmania and visit
as many clubs as possible. Most fund raising projects stay
on the mainland and sck to the coast road but we
decided that we would visit clubs that were within reach
and we had enough response from Tasmania to jusfy
heading over there. With only weeks to go a truck backed
in the motorcycle and damaged it, the driver's insurance
was stalling and as all the parts have to come from
America we knew we would be waing so, we had to get
another bike fast and meet our commitments including the
ferry on me.
We headed o as arranged across the Nullabor and
headed to Tasmania. The very rst day aer breakfast with
two Lions clubs in Devonport we headed to Launceston to
meet up with another two clubs. A reporter was there and
he wasted no me geng the story to print and for the
rest of the me in Tasmania everywhere we went people
knew what we were doing and it made it so much easier to
collect money. Even as we were loading onto the ferry we
were right up front and people were geng out of their cars
and bringing donaons to us. Moments like that remind us that what we are doing is worthwhile because we are seeing
human nature at its best.
We connued up the east coast collecng and giving talks at
Lions clubs unl we reached Burleigh Heads where we were
hit by a major storm. We were invited to shelter in a motel
unl the storm blew over but the motel was damaged in the
storm and we could do nothing but wait. On the news we
could see that people were losing their houses and cars in
shopping centre car parks were under water, but all we could
do was wait. When it started to move south we thought if
we headed north we could get away from it, but we were too
badly damaged. Surprisingly the bike did not have a
scratch. We limped into Toomoomba and had the trailer
looked at but the engineer said This trailer is not going
anywhere”. We also had a hole the size of a soccer ball in the
hull of the boat. Faced with another 16,000 km including the
Plains and the Great Sandy Desert or head 4,500km home we
patched the trailer and headed home but it was slow going
and it took ten days. Glen Hurst.
