It is two weeks before I arrive in Australia, whereupon the final preparations my CSR walk will be actioned.

Some interesting developments.

Rex Shaw, one of the original Canning Walkers, has stepped out of history and is corresponding. He is real! I am in awe. I never thought I would get to talk to this man and read his incredible collection of newspaper clippings and carefully scribed diary of that walk.

One newspaper clipping that might be of historical interest is already loaded to this webpage
http://www.canningwalker.com/index.php/the-canning-stock-route/walkers-runners-and-hitchhikers

I will load more information and newspaper clippings over the next few days.

Did you know that Rex walked the Canning Stock Route at the tender age of 16 years old?

They made 'em tough in those days!
