Meet Mark B – he drives coal trains. He also plays cricket with friends of mine and thanks to stevetheplumber making a phone call I scored myself 30 points.
It’s so interesting how many people will say yes and help out in what is truly the most of frivolous of pursuits.
For instance, yesterday I called a few Government Departments – DFAT, AG, and a statutory body called The National Capital Authority – I was requesting some information and the person I called tried a person walking past their desk, the boss of that person, the boss of that person and finally I was given an email address to try and then, 20 minutes later, called me back with the answer I needed – they had spoken to the CEO of NatCap to find out the answer. Sadly the answer was no, but I am being blown away at how willing people are to help me have fun and adventures.
