"Tummies & Salmon Trout In Timor"

Rachael ( Our Very Special Roving Corespondent in the Far East) has just been able to give us more information on the Talisker Bounty Boat Boy's, she was able to pass this on to us via Bali, as the internet connections where the TBBBs are staying are very patchy at best!

After all the celebrations (Partying) Don has gone down with another severe attack of "Salmon Trout"( Gout), David W is all "Tea-ed up" David P has lost his voice, and poor young Chris has got Kupang Belly.

Don & Chris are due to leave for Australia in 4 day's time! so lets hope that they have recovered by then. As a fellow Gout sufferer I know how painful it can be,and it does not clear up overnight, even if you have the best drugs for it.

It is only to be expected that these brave men would be susceptible to infections and any underlying medical problems would flare up after their 48 day ordeal and diet. It was a price that they were prepared to pay, to help us build the SITraN building.

I have just looked up via Google Earth the location of the Talisker Bounty Boat, and it looks as if it has been moved about 8 times ashore since arrival in Kupang, the reason for these movements would probably be for media photo shoots! it went inland about two blocks,as well as going east & west and is now back close to where the beach starts, land-wood side, I also presume that it must have been manhandled as the TBB trailer is in Australia.

In my book the Talisker Bounty Boat Boys are" The Greatest" and I look forward to be able to thank them in person, on behalf of all Neurological diseases victims.

Watch this space, for details when they are coming to England
Thanks for all your support

And Stuart, a special note to you for keeping us all up-to-date when the crew couldn't. No doubt the team also gained inspiration from your support and encouragement 'back home'.
