Two weeks down, one left to go for the Northern Loop of the tour...

This week we'll be screening in the final four communities as part of the tour's Northern Loop - Tom Price, Paraburdoo, Newman and Mt Magnet.

We're having a great time and meeting some fantastic people along the way, but last week things got a little tricky when the transmission failed in Jim's car...

We're now in a hire car, and a very kind Phil Gardiner (Perth-based engineer) had a hand-control sent up to us overnight as Jim needs this to control the pedals (due to his paraplegia).

So 'thank you' Phil, you saved the day!

Also last week, we visited ABC North West's studio in Karratha to speak with the lovely Cristy-Lee McQueen about the movie, the tour, and our screenings in the area.  Here we are in the studio - let us know if you heard the interview!

We're also enjoying the audience feedback on our Facebook page, so please keep it coming!

Recent comments have included:

  • "Had a great night, really enjoyed the movie. Inspirational..."

  • "Thankyou Jim for coming to Kalbarri District High school to talk to us. You're such an inspirational man!"
  • "Just come back home after seeing your film - inspirational! If there is something you want to do in life, this film inspires you to find a way to do it! Fantastic and thank you!"

It's always great to hear what people think of the movie, and the positive feedback keeps us motivated!

Don't forget you can also get in touch by email! Just send your comments to and we'll be sure to pass them on to Jim and Sandra.
