Mission accomplished—well done Terry

Another handstand for Terry. This one at TIger Leaping Gorge near Lijiang, China.

After introducing Terry as our own Burger King—with a goal of eating a burger for every day of the overland trip—I can report that his mission is more than accomplished.

The trip lasts for 169 days and we reach Sydney, and the end of the road, in about two weeks.

Terry ate his 169th burger a few weeks ago in southeast Asia. He made it a bit of a ceremony and some of the group was there to witness this finale. Of course, he’s had a few burgers since then, but admits that he’s glad to be back to his favourite snack of tinned tuna.

He’s thinking of another overland trip and figures his next daily challenge should be a slightly healthier one. That said, we planning on buying him an Aussie burger with THE LOT. In addition to all the usual burger toppings, one of those includes beetroot, pineapple, a fried egg. He’ll love it.

Also don’t forget to pick a number before 29 February 2012.

    Oh yes Terry, you must have an Australian burger. I favour meat, onions, lettuce, tomato, beetroot, cheese and pineapple. And the bun must be toasted. I had one a few months ago where the bun was just a plain, untoasted bun. There’s actually a law against this but I can’t find it on the statute books.

    Are you coming to Canberra too?

    All the best.
