Posted:(i'm not entirely sure that this is the correct forum for this post but...)

3 students from the UK are going to travel around the world in 80 ways (yes thats 80 methods of transport, not a typo) raising money for TreeHouse, a charity that supports children with autism.
I don't know the students, but 2 of them go to my uni, and the uni is supporting them hence my knowledge of the trip. I think it sounds like a fascinating and worthwhile project.

But my reason for posting here, is that as an international community, I figured maybe home of poi may be able to help them:
They need people around the world to help provide them with means of transport or to put them up for the night. So if anyone thinks they can help, go to http://www.80ways.co.uk/
In fact everyone should go have a look and see if they have any other wierd means of transport that they can suggest, or maybe even to donate money

And i'd be interested to know if anyone does have a rickshaw/cammel/quadbike that they provide for the journey...

Posted:I emailed the guys with; fire walking (and naturally had a long warning about the hazards of it ^.^'), fireman's carry and squat lunges as well as a wagon. I can't believe they didn't think of wagon! I mean, that is an essential part of ANY childhood!

Dance like it hurts; Love like you need money; Work like someone is watching.

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. That way, when you DO criticize them, you are a mile away, and you have their shoes.
