I was quite honored and more so surprised that UPS delivered me the coveted Firefighters golden axe today.
My childhood dream and career is now fulfilled.
They planted a cedar tree for me in my favourite park in Vancouver today while I am still alive! I always hoped someone would do that...but after I died. This tree that could last 800 or more years, thats a bit more than me. They said it's for completing my inspirational journey and charity funds given to the cancer agency because of it. I am very excited and will have a proper party here (beer and food provided free) post covid. I will post date and location next year. Thank you all for following my journey ....I'm not finished, or dead....yet
November 29 2016 will always be a special day for me as its the day I set the world record in New Zealand, up the worlds steepest street. It still holds today after several attempts to break in at 3m:49s:15. Also a full moon coming up Nov. 29. November's full Moon is most often called the “Beaver Moon” since it's in November that beaver traps were set in North America.
I never stopped much, but had to stop here on my journey. Its been lit almost 30 million years by glow worms. They survive in this cave by spinning a silk nest from the ceiling and lowering a thread down to fish for their prey. The roof of the cave is a breathtaking sight dotted with brightly glowing specks. Like a sky full of stars.
Sandstorms never worried me until I was caught in one. Then they terrified me. Protecting your eyes, lungs and skin from getting sandblasted in suffocating dust, is extremely difficult. Visibility is zero progress is zero. Hunker down tight in a ball, pray and wait it out.
I swam Alcatraz in 2019. Next year in June 2021 I will attempt to set a third World Record with a swim Alcatraz to San Francisco. Either way I love the clam chowder at the wharf, a bowl is worth the swim. If you believe, train, and try hard enough, anything is Pospisil.
