Jetstreams and prepping

Lots happening here as usual...........
Working on Lucy but run out of creams and blue squares I need to make the fillers with and put around the Lucy blocks.........
So its cutting, gluing and prepping bags to sew.........
Talk about prepping I'm trying to up my walking in preparation for March Charge a Cancer Council fundraiser...........
I headed out the gate and looked up........OMG the sun was not up yet but a jet and its short jetstream were catching the rays.............
Here it is further away.........it was a stunning sight and thinking of my walking and working out distance goals to go to I decided to walk the loop to the sheep yards...........I know if I go down and back the same way it is 3kms but I was not sure if I did the loop..........it's just under 4kms so glad I did it now..........
Dust catching the sunlight about the 3km mark.......the sheep had just crossed my path heading to water at the dam..........
&&&&&&
NOW BACK to the MARCH CHARGE for cancer...........
I am walking.......I have registered to raise funds.........

I am walking for many people in my life...........
ones I have lost - my sister, my nan, my uncle, my aunty, mums cousin, dads cousin, my great aunt, one of my best friends, Mr Chookys grandad, friends mum

Survivors - BIL, cousins grandson, friends husband

Fighting now - FIL for the second time, 
many others to numerous to mention but these are closer ones
&&&&&
In blogland I know of friends who have battles to close to the heart
my friend who lost her husband to lymphoma
my friend who's son is currently battling melanoma
  my friends mum battling lung cancer
my friend who beat breast cancer
another friend almost clear on cancer
another friends who's husband battled cancer 

So WALK WITH ME
but most importantly 

Crazily I said I would walk 93kms avg 3kms/day.
I usually walk 1-1.5kms sometimes 2km if I have time.......I walked 4km this morning and my knees are hurting (they are crap) but you know what my sore knees is nothing compared to cancer so I'll just live on panadol or nurofen if need be for the month........
Any amount of support you can give will all add up..........

if you have someone special tell me and I will walk for them too..........

I don't normally ask for anything like this but cancer affects way to many people and it is not just the person who gets it it is their whole world affected......family, friends etc....

Out here in the bush there are pretty much no services so you have to travel great distances just for treatment and Drs............
