The day before Penny's swim I heard from Steve Munatones that some Hollywood producer heard about the swim and was sending an outdoor sports photographer to film it from the escort boat. We were all stoked, especially Penny. He was in LA, had his ticket and was on his way to the airport in a cab when he got a call from the company lawyer saying he couldn't go because it was too dangerous and there were liability issues. We swapped a few lawyer jokes on the boat none of which I want to repeat here.
How is the 2817 mile challenge going? As expected the start was exciting but the whole middle part was was lacking in publicity and donations. I'm now in the home stretch. Next Im entered in the XTERRA Trail Running World Championship . It's a half marathon at Kualoa Ranch and I'm doing it barefoot. In December a double circling the island - one full loop (140 miles) and then the other loop ( 112 mile Dick Evans route up the middle of the island) non stop. In January Laurel Dudley ( who was part of the original Blue Planer Run-around-the -world) and I are planning a big get everyone we know involved extreme event. Check back for more on this. Remember that we are doing this to raise money for Blue Planet Network so they can help the millions around the world who are in desperate need of clean drinking water. Did you donate?
