almost famous...

The topics discussed here may not be as humourous as reading about our Brushes with Death or barracking for Fat Bastard in the Cane Toad Races. If you thought you were going to enjoy more adventure on this page, you'd better take the express train outta here...

If however, you're a journalist who's looking for a great story, or a teacher who's searching for the best "classroom visitors," or someone who wants to give us an honourary degree in psychology... welcome.

media clippings
There's nothing we love more than articles about us with the word "wacky" in the headline. They're so much better than articles that start with "Couple stumbles across..." or "Couple found in..."

For the past year, we've been turning our adventures into a regular column in Australian Cyclist. Tens of thousands of cyclists throughout Australia have been following us along at every turn of our pedals. We've whinged, we've celebrated and we've just made the cover of the magazine! Best of all, now you can read the entire series online!

Melbourne Herald Sun Weekend Magazine!
We're thrilled to bits that the Herald Sun did a feature on our ride around Australia entitled Around Australia on a Lawn Chair. Published so that it came out the same week that our expedition ended, the two-page article is now one of our favourite interviews, thanks to the unique questions posed by journalist, Claire Sutherland.

press releases
Occassionally we like to start our own rumours. We usually do this by alerting the mass media of some crazed larger-than-life adventure we're about to start. The downside of this is we usually find that once we've told others about it, we have to actually do it.

inside scoop
Since we tend to go flapping our gums about everything and anything when we're talking to people, we thought it might be best if we agreed on some of the finer points of our lives. Here's our attempt at creating a unified front to the masses.
