I don't know what the forum policy is, but I will see how I go posting this anyway as I feel it may be of some value to the community.

In November I will be commencing New Zealand's Te Araroa Track. It's a 3000km tramp (Kiwi speak for "hike") from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South Island. It'll take me 5-6 months.

I'm doing it to achieve a person goal foremost, but also intend to shout (tactfully) the gospels of veganism along the way. More specifically, show that such a thing can be done without eating animal products.

I asked Animals Australia for some publicity but they were unfortunately unable to provide me with any - they get tonnes of requests, it's their policy not to; I appreciate that.

If you'd like to follow my journey (It would be much appreciated) go here:

I think thats a great Idea. The biggest issue I and many out there have to face is Omni's claiming we are unfit,pale,sick without meat. Maybe try Sunrise on channel Seven? They replied to all our comments on the circus issue so they might help you get some publicity. Try other morning channels too.

Goodluck and I will be watching in interest!
