More than happy to try:
Melbourne last night:
Sold out. 120 seats. Terrific tales, video clips and stills and some harrowing tales from Paul interspersed with some genuine humour.
A broad but brief peek at his early days on Gogarth and slate in North Wales through to The Alps, Baffin Island, The Himalaya and Karakorum to *that* ill-fated trip to Tasmania's Totem Pole which changed his life irrevocably.

I shan't give anything away, but when PP said "The accident was the best thing that's ever happened to me" it literally drew breaths and his explanation of that statement thereafter made complete sense.

The [now] disability trike section was most inspiring - as was Paul's present work with disabled school kids.

All in all a great show so well done to PP and by the sponsors. 10/10.

Lastly, PP's next expedition is commencing on September 1st and involves leading a team of fellow disabled adventurers on trikes from the lowest point in Australia to the highest and can be sponsored via his website which I think is www.paulpritchard.com.au

Its Brisbane tonight: Doors 6.30PM, Metro Arts, 109 Edward St, City.

Enjoy.
AP.
