    If I many quote my favorite line from a zombie movie:
    "Ah, f### it, it's just pain. Let's go."

    Also, I've been hunting around with members who might know, but I have been unable to find an address. If @CircleK would like to come forward, I was going to send him a prize a little better then 100 'likes'.

    Sorry to hear about the toe nails dude, that just sucks :-( Hope you get a dry night and a great sunrise.

    Even Megabloks Bob is willing you on from here

    ^that's a lovely surprise @SprinkleOtter ! I'm sure @CircleK will be pleased.

    @Legoboy I'm sorry but I'm going to have to go to bed. I'm sure the people on the other side of the equator will be around to entertain you.

    And keep thinking of why you are doing this, the great amount of money you have raised and of the lovely walk you can do with your family and afterwards a long bath and a beer. I've heard that Epsom salts in the water restore you after exertion but then that might hurt the cuts on your toes.

    Will be walking along in my dreams though!

    It was supposed to be a true "What the heck is this package?" surprise, but nobody here knew circle's address, lol.

    Hey - I'm on the other side of the equator!  And I'm wearing pants!  What a coincidence!

    I realize that it is bedtime there, but why the other side of the equator, necessarily? ;)

    @sprinkleotter because I'm not good at geograpghy and tried to be funny when I'm tired.

    Couldn't stay away though and just in time for a big moment! Great to see you standing up James at 75! Waw waw! Only a quarter left.
    You do your best waking at night time do this should be a breeze!

    Going at a good clip @Legoboy

    Is anyone else not seeing cookham on James' bib? And that's not me being clever.
    Want to be sure the progress is being recorded.

    @MaffyD just multitasking;) no, I had a kip but was just too curious to see what's happening.

    @Lego_Star that's what I'm seeing too, online and on the app. Might be some lagging, system doesn't seem the most impressive one.

    @Legoboy sending a couple of extra pounds your way as encouragement. You are doing so well!

    I suspect he meant as to inhale his food, not chewing, just in it goes.

    @snowhitie It could be lag (or not updating during the night) but better not to find out it isn't after he's finished. I'd say James is entitled to know his stats on this magnificent acheivement and then some given all that he went through before 7.20am this morning, just to get to the Challenge.

    Right, I'm afraid I'm up to date on my topical news comedy show recordings. And, my wife has just texted me asking why the hell aren't I in bed, and I'm not sure she'd believe the real reason, so...

    @Legoboy - I know that sometime in the morning, you will read this. Know that we're all rooting for you, and I know you'll finish in style! Take care, good luck, and I'll catch up later!

    ^^glad to hear I'm not the only one doing that (texting my husband to come to bed that is).

    Two notes:
    a) I would've had silent tears sliding down my face at the first bigtoe nail loss, so you're clearly made of steel guts. 
    b) I'm slightly disappointed the meal stop in Cookham did not involve cooked ham.

    But holy crap, you're doing amazing!
