    That's where they are going to bury him after the walk ;)

    "...that's when the demons come out..." brilliant!! Sorry to hear it was such a struggle; sounds like partnering up with your friend could be the way to go to give you both that extra boost (I hear demons only pick on individuals so there's safety in numbers!) Just be careful not to overdo things and listen to the medical advice when it comes through. Best of luck!

    PS cool photos!

    Exactly.  They're last year's challengers.

    Went out for a walk last night.

    Legs and feet are still broken but at least I will have smashed my previous 16 mile record.  Cried a bit, stopped for a minute, finally got home, gone midnight.  15.2 miles.  WTF?? That can't be right. I walked way further.  4hr 40min, I must have.  But only 11 miles of the map has recorded. Don't understand.  11 miles of map, 15.20 miles total counted, 4hr 40min.  I don't get it. 

    Is the truth simply that you were out catching Pokemon and you fumbled the wrong button?

    Yep.  Spooky huh!?   I find I walk faster if I go home that way.
    Is that because there are Ringwraiths chasing you?

    Today's walks were much better.

    ^ Now I know where the inspiration came from for the gate on the Haunted House.

    Say 'hi' to the Blair Witch for me.  

    This gives me the heebie-jeebies.

    WOW @bendybadger, what an awesome prize. Sooooooooo wanna win that! And that's not the only prize that's on offer that I'd like in my LEGO collection. :o)

    Love the Scooby pic, young Sam is gonna love that! :D

    Well done for going back out there and I'm glad it's going better. That's the witching hour if ever I saw one!

    I'm sure all these well wishes must help you on your way.

    @bendybadger that picture is Hi-la-ri-ous!

    @DeMontes that's a great build! How about a thingy (yes, that's the technical term) to rotate the camera to take earie panoramic pictures?

    I really hope that the ablution tubes are really well marked so they don't get mixed up-or that weather proof seating area might not needed. :p

    Ps wonderful build.

    @snowhitie but Mini James uses his smartphone for the eerie shots so not sure what other camera is required ;-)

    @bandit778 haha...there's certainly a good incentive to double-check the plumbing before use!

    ^ there you see why I shouldn't post early in the morning, I did not explain very well.
    I meant a thing to put the camera (smartphone) on that rotates on its own accord for perfect 360° pictures.

    @snowhitie ahh, I see but it rains a lot in the UK so I thought it best to leave it in the weatherproof cockpit.  Also, Mini James is controlling the Exo WalkBuster Suit via the phone, perhaps best to keep it close by ;-)

    ^@demontes that makes perfect sense - all this heat is making me forget the rain...

    Hope the little ones aren't too affected by the warm weather.

    @DeMontes That is AMAZING!  Are you up for another challenge?  A full-scale one with PFs?  Have a word with Burf.  :A

    @DarthMorl and @princedraven, very kind words from both of you and have touched a nerve at the wrong time of the day (in the office).  Very much appreciated.

    I will need  buy a lot more tickets now as I want to win AOH (so nobody else gets upset with their prize you understand & hey, it's Star Wars) but I will also need to win the prize kindly donated by @Calv so I can make a start at finishing it. :)

    All joking aside, these are some seriously good prizes.

    If someone Stateside wins the AOH or one of our Aussie friends shipping is going to be a killer :)

    This is madness. All the community coming together raising money for a great cause! Once I'm done with my trip at the weekend I will be donating to this great cause. @Legoboy I hope you the best for you're challenging walk.

    Ok so this may or may not go down to well but I put forward a proposal to help lift the cash kitty for this fantastic cause even higher .... I will donate half the RRP / brick link price for any of the raffle prizes should I be lucky enough to win. I hope I can persuade all other winners to do the same???

    @bandit778. I can't believe you would choose a Tautaun over Mini James and his Exo WalkBuster suit!! ;-)

    @DeMontes
    Mini James looks worried enough already, spending most of his life in a Ziploc baggie or plastic container like most of my Lego has to while I build other stuff would tip the poor boy over the edge .
    That and the fact that I can't resist a joke at the expense of AOH even though I still want it for my collection.
    (That would have to be my introduction at Lego anonymous " hello I'm bandit778, and I really want Assault on Hoth" )
    Oh the shame.  :(

    Great idea for a raffle James. Having also lost my Dad to cancer a few years a go, and received excellent care from our local hospice I'm more than happy to help. Need to think about what prize I can offer. I've got a few Fountains knocking around, you can def have one of those...
