r.i.p. mate

Paul and I cycling through Germany 1986

Paul and his wheels 1991

Today is the day 13 years ago that Paul died. He was one of my closest friends. He was the one who first got me interested in bushwalking. He had me join the bushwalking club he was a member of and we went on some incredible 7 - 10 day walks, such as in the Budawangs and through the Snowy Mountains National Park.

He and I cycled around Europe together in 1986 and I know he would love some of the places I have been to since he died. I think a lot of why I now travel so earnestly is as much for him as for me.

He would be 45 years old now.
