Ronan's report


Sunday 21st December, 2014

I've been back in KL this weekend to buy a boat (and do a washing!). Two weeks of bush running and fishing in a sweaty jungle meant that the laundrette had their work cut out. Just wait until I've been there a month, I told them! Normally of course I get to wash my clothes in the streams, but the constant monsoons of last week prevented clothes drying, and consequently washing. Just like old times (Ronan)!

Today I've picked up the boat. It's a 12ft Tinny with 15hp 4-stroke engine. The plan is to rig up a support for a tarp, build a removable platform that will double-up as a bed, and sleep, fish and camp in the jungle. But first I've agreed to a job in a rainforest bar. Generally there is only one customer - me. So it's not going to be too stressful. Ti likened it to asking a "monkey to look after bananas". It's for one month.

I'm thoroughly looking forward to this coming month. I've already started training for next year's Ironman - I've been lifting weights, hill running and sprint training. I've fixed up the bike and will drop this into the morning schedule. Afternoons will be fishing, and the evenings working in the bar. Perfect! Four months from now I'll be exceptionally fit I think - and hopefully I'l have caught a stack of fish!

The bar also gives me something very important over the next few weeks - Internet connection! We have a completely new FP layout in testing and there is a lot of work to be done between now and going live, in the first week of January. This is a very exciting period and I hope you'll like it!

I think my trip really starts now. It's great to be alive! Christmas soon. I wonder what the New Year will bring :-)))

Cheers, Paul
