This is from her. Media update

“Ever wondered how far your bottom bracket might last?? πŸ™‹πŸ™‹ I know, I know 20,000km. It all went to pot yesterday with a broken gear cable maybe putting more stress on it. The next replacement unit is 600km away in Edmonton but I’m in #dawsoncreek with a very patient mechanic who’s busy trying to bodge me a fix to make the next stop.

I knew I was onto a winner when his first words were #yikkkkes πŸ˜‚βœŒοΈ #dude!! It’s looking about 50/50 that he’ll be able to do something 🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞 yesterday I wished out loud that I could have a little longer in bed 🀦 careful what you wish for “🌟 @adventuresynd #eastboundRTW #bodgetastic

“Jenny, I’ve just been listening to your enchanting BBC radio blogs. You are becoming a star, as you incredible journey deserves. I loved your comments on the podcast you’d been listening to in NZ, Apsley Cherry-Garrard’s, “The Worst Journey in the World”. It’s one of the best epic adventure stories. I’ve read lots of other epics covering mountain, ocean and Arctic adventures. I have to say that your adventure is right up there. Knowing you I’m quite sure that you have no idea of the enormity of what you are achieving. Whatever happens now, you are going to come back a heroine. It will be hard to return to your former life. There is a book and a TV documentary to be made! Don’t push to hard. Your reserves will be drained. The important thing is to get back safely. Your achievement is fantastic – exactly how many days really doesn’t matter. In awe, Gerry.

    Jenny is my hero! Here she is trying to reach an amazing goal and she has time to mail a lost wallet back to it’s owner in Alaska. Jenny, if you get this message I thank you! My son went on a fishing trip, that went wrong, on the copper river when the motor in his boat went afoul. He found himself and two other crew floating down the dangerous river. They obviously survived but upon arriving home realized the wallet was missing. It showed up in the mail about a month later. So thank you and good luck with your journey! Heidi
