Day 8

Oct 2, 2012

During his check points he must complete a lot in a small amount of time (if you watch NASCAR you will understand)

Day 7

Oct 1, 2012

Cody is very, very sore. No hugs allowed, sorry guys (besides he is normally drenched with sweat it looks like he has been swimming, its really for your own good)

Day 6

Sep 30, 2012

Cody went up until about 7:45pm this evening and said “I don’t know what has happened but I am feeling great”.

Day 5 – Trouble on the Trail

Sep 29, 2012

He could hardly walk and the remnants of a broken spirit were splashed on his face.

Day 4

Sep 29, 2012

The Bruce is tough, it’s beaten him up and down and yet he still manages to embrace the positive.

Day 3

Sep 28, 2012

Cody arrived to his first check point slightly frustrated as there was a loss of Trail marks due to some nice new telephone poles.

Day 2

Sep 26, 2012

As Cody approached the check point you could see from the look on his face the trail gave him a bit of a beating.
