Award winning filmmaker, average gardener, and hopeless at cooking eggs, Beau is mostly unfashionable.

On the recent 350k crossing of Bass Strait in a sea kayak (from Australia’s mainland to Tasmania) he was voted 3rd worst dressed in a party of 3. When 2 more expedition members turned up he was the worst of 5. It was agreed that if 395 more people joined the party, he would be the 400th best dressed. Being offbeat and NQR speaks volumes about how Beau sees the world.
Past experiences include paddling several thousand kilometers of Africa by Kayak, running 700km across the Australian Alps (Trials of Miles), and recently finding challenge and beauty in the everyday lands between home and work during Man vs Commute.

The simple life of the track

The simple life is over. Consider ultra running; the principle concerns of life are a broken down version of necessity. On any given day, the guiding forces of existence are; how the feet feel, how the body feels, how hydrated you are, how your fuel supply is, where you are…

First Maccas in 20 years: idiot.

Helen and I, a little excited, find ourselves free at a strange time of day. Based on my pestering we head to McDonald's at the non-mealtime of 2:45pm. Let me explain.  I’ve not purchased anything from the yellow hoops since 1998 due to the combined efforts of running and doing…
