DeafBlind and Jeff thank you very much for your kindness..

There are several reasons for Jeff's walk but one of the most important is to raise funds and awareness for the DeafBlind Association. He is making an enormous effort to walk this distance on his own WITHOUT a support backup vehicle of any kind. Everything he needs for the journey he carries on his back in a backpack. This includes, food, water, clothing, a small tent, thermal sleeping bag, the satellite phone, radio equipment, antenna and a battery big enough for reliable communications. He wears a solar charging panel around his neck to keep power up to the battery while he walks in the hot sun. At night, this time of year the temperatures can drop to around zero degrees Celsius and so warm bedding and clothing are essential and this is quite heavy to carry over a long distance. The weight of the backpack is about 28 Kg. His fresh water supply weighs 8 Kg alone. Every possible saving in weight has been made, for example, even the toothbrush is cut in half.

Jeff would very much appreciate any donations toward this very worthwhile cause.
Donations of $2.00 or more are tax deductible. Thank you in advance.
