The message


Bloomliving and Winger Subaru Greenlane have made it possible to get out and visit some schools. The reception has been fantastic with nearly everyone recognising DD. Im a bit more anonyamous without the beard!

The message is to look for a pathway and develop a passion. Some have one others need to look but the message is to CHOOSE an activity in sport, art, music, academics etc and then to make daily pathway choices.


The Aim: To row the Tasman Solo in record time and an immediate return crossing as a kayak solo in a World first event, has been shelved due to funding so we will go ahead with the hard part and consider the rest later.

The Aim: Solo Kayak from Coffs harbour in Australia to NZ. Aiming for the Naki as they are a good bunch but the wind has the most say in where to land...let you know a few days out.

Its difficult to answer this satisfactorily for most people because most focus on the hurdle rather than how to get over it.

Its about what feels right. Its taken many aspects both positive and negative to arrive here. I own this from conception to completion.

To raise awareness, in partnership with Asthma New Zealand, of the importance of increasing aerobic activity levels in our day to day lives.
