Well it's official - Chriss book has been launched, is now in all good book stores, and is flying off the shelves, just in time for Christmas! Grab your signed copy from our website now (rather than buying from a book store, so we actually get some profit to put towards our next adventures!)

We're so happy to finally have the book to show people what it was like crossing Victoria Island. It's been received really well so far and we're amazed at the amount of publicity the book has generated. We've been interviewed by the Sunrise morning team of Channel 7, had a feature story on the 7:30 Report for ABC, and been on Triple M radio, been in the Sydney Morning Herald and even got into the 'Best of ABC Our picks of unmissable content section of their main website!

Oh and apparently we've got faces like the back of a bus... wait.... we've got our faces ON the back of a bus! That's right, an advertisement for our book is now plastered on the back of hundred's of buses driving around all the major cities around the country. Awesome :)

What next??? Well the pressure is certainly on to get the DOCUMENTARY finished on our expedition. Its going to be awesome, and we've got some really amazing footage that we can't wait to release to the world, but we're still short of cash to finish the job. We still need to pay for colour grading and sound mixing etc, and so were on the hunt for about AU$20,000 to have a fully finished, shinny new doco.

So if you've read the book (nice work by the way Chris), and are now busting to watch the doco, so are we so simply click the 'donate now' button below to donate any amount you wish to the cause! (No, you dont need a PayPal Account, you can just use a credit card)

Or, if you know anybody who has a spare $20,000 lying around, we're willing to take it off their hands :)

In the mean time, WATCH THE 7:30 REPORT interview segment about our trip and the book ONLINE HERE! Its got great new never-seen-before video footage! Well known Aussie adventurer and philanthropist Dick Smith was even interviewed for it! WATCH THE VIDEO HERE, or with a bit of luck it may appear embedded below! Enjoy!

And don't forget to check out the book!

Great work... I knew it would be a hit. Bit short on the $20K, but I'm sure that soon, someone with the dosh will come forward, because it will be a great doco - can't wait till the red carpet launch, I'll start shopping for a little black strapless number, love, Joanne
