Michael Mitchell, doing the Great Cancer Walk from the top of Australia to the bottom is having a problem with lack of power to keep the fridge running to keep supplies fresh for himself and the support team.

In short, the car is not travelling far enough each day to put enough power in. Part of the problem has been solved; Ian Martin from RV powerstream has put his hand in his pocket again and is happy to supply Mike with a Solar Panel.

The problem is getting the Panel to Mike. He will be in Laura, QLD in a week. Ian can get it into Cooktown or Mossman. Can anyone get it to Laura, or do they know of a truckie who may travel that route who is happy to help out?

Another alternative is for a kind herarted EO member who lives up that way to drive it out. I'm sure if we have a whip around we can scrounge fuel money for the trip. I'll put up the first $50.

Any other ideas would be great.

Jim.

Hi Jim

Have you thought about the Mail Contractor, he goes up there on
a regular basis, just a thought.

PS, We should think about setting up a small fund, for these sorts of
things, in the future, I am not aware if any have started all ready.
may be the Exploroz members who have been here longer might
know.


Cheers

Jim the Mail Contractor flys in Three times a week, from Cairns, the
General Store / Post Office phone number is 0740603238, any idea
how much the Solar Panel weighs,? seeing its for a Charity Fund Raiser
they might be able to assist, no harm trying.

Thanks Daza,

I spoke to the lady at the Laura General Store and got details of the Mail Contractor.

It will be Monday before we can get a result.

You really did shortcut our research.

Thanks again,

Jim.

If you can get it to Cooktown, give the Council a ring to find out if they have workers going North, they do so on a regular basis and I am sure they will help for a good cause. They always used to try to help in these matters. Regards Tony - Ex Cooktown Council Foreman.
