Congrat's Nathan - the problem with doing ONE Four Day is, afterwards when the fatigue has long gone, the WANT to have another crack grows stronger...

See you next year in Harvey, WA??

Thanks all. Currently enjoying a state of numb contentedness. And my first beer in weeks.

Dunno about next year. I finished the 24 hour and straight away knew I'd be back. This one feels like it will take a while for the idea to grow.
It's also the week after next year's 24, so it would literally be a matter of jumping on a plane and flying to Perth... The logistics would be a nightmare.

But who am I kidding? After all of the stuff that's been sacrificed to make it here, The Wife owns my balls for the foreseeable future...  :D ...  :o I'll be lucky to do anything more than ride the TTR to the shops for the next six months.

Yeah, my Husky. The TM and I didn't get along... Too peaky, too twitchy in the handling.

And the brand new, current model Husky with warranty was $100 more than I sold the TM for, it made it a pretty easy decision...

Well done Nathan. You have done what many dream of, a few try and even fewer finish.
