Thanks for visiting the Friendship Flight blog!
The trip was a great success - I made it back after realising my dream of flying along the Morning Glory BUT those affected by cancer still need help, so the fundraising page is still going if you were interested in making a donation (see below).
About the adventure: I flew solo from the south coast of Australia, across the outback, to the north coast of Australia to catch the elusive Morning Glory cloud.

There has been more rain across Victoria, thwarting my efforts to go flying. I left Melbourne with blue skies and light winds. The cloud was on the deck from Kilmore all the way up to here (Wangaratta). Managed to get off the ground and did an hour + of forced landing practice before the rain started up again. It did get me thinking of job prospects when I come back from the trip. Maybe I could offer 'rain making' services to drought stricken farmers. You could also pay me to stay away from the vicinity of any weather dependant outdoor activity. Any takers? Of course, I will need to come up with a flashy title for this much needed role.
