Jake has just posted 'walkabout 8' over on his Earthwalker Tribe page: "Nestled in the Mountains inland from Australia's Gold Coast, Lamington National Park is truly transporting. Antarctic beech trees that date back to Gondwana land, dense rainforests, crystal creeks, and an abundance of waterholes, waterfalls and hikes galore. Do I need say anything more? We've been going on family weekends here for years and it truly is a magical place. This was our first family weekend away in ages and Mother nature couldn't have put on more of a spectacular show for us." Read more: earthwalkertribe.com/blogs/walkabouts

Our Sound Guy & dear friend 'Chucky', who has been touring with us for the past 7 years, has been fighting for his life in ICU. It's a miracle that he’s still alive & it's going to be a long road to recovery in hospital. He and his partner are currently unable to work as a result. If you have a spare minute please share this around and help them out. We will also have a donation tin at our merch desk during next weeks QLD shows. Wishing you a speedy recovery brother Chuck ❤ IHW Here is a message from his partner Sunny: "The love of my life, Chucky Hope, was working a show in rural Australia when a PA fell on his head. A few hours after this, he ate the only vegan catering option available, and a few hours later spent 8-10 hours vomiting from what was suspected food poisoning. He made his way home to me in Byron Bay a day later. He was weak and I suspected dehydration from the food poisoning. Over the next two days, he slept and only had the strength to make it to our bathroom and back to bed running a fever. On Tuesday January 29th, he messaged me at work that "something is really wrong". We got him into our local doctor immediately, and that was the last time that he walked. From there he was rushed to the local hospital where tests were run, and then to a larger hospital. Overnight, the paralysis spread to his entire body and he was transferred to the ICU. After a lumbar puncture, they suspected Gillian Barre and treatment began. Two days later, the treatment wasn't working and his left lung collapsed. He was intubated and put on a central line. He was like this for 10 days with little memory of his time spent in there. The diagnosis then changed, and a full team of doctors remained puzzled. Developing pneumonia from the intubation, he fought infection and fever like hell. When he was awake, he kept communicating by blinking and little finger taps in the two fingers he could move. That sense of humour I love so much still very much alive in a trapped body. He began to improve, so was moved to a ward and taken off the intubation while sore, exhausted and confused. He now has some movement in his upper body, and we are trying desperately to get him into a rehab facility before too much muscle mass is lost in his legs. He just wants to walk.... he just wants to go home. The road to recovery is going to be a long, hard and mentally challenging one, but he is up for the fight. He is currently unable to work though. Days exhaust him, and the support needed is extensive and expensive so any little bit helps. If you can't help with money, just help with sending him love and positive vibes please. Thank you."
