So what is RYLA about anyway?

Tony Fulton tells of his...

Adventures!

Tony Fulton had a life changing experience when he was invited by a friend to go along to a RYLA camp. He found RYLA challenged him to face his fears and to trust his judgement and his fellow man. He found freedom and the spirit of adventure.

Tony was an inspiration to hear as he spoke of what RYLA can do for a young person seeking to discover their potential and then more!

We all wondered at how we would cope at the edge of a cliff with just a parachute on our back...Jump...you have got to be kidding!...and he did!

And so what is BASE jumping?

So many steps...Buddha would be proud!

Base jumping they call it...

Invited by a friend to visit him in France and then being enrolled in a 24 hour bike race....and to cap it off having to do a lap with an injury and then come back later and do some more...It's no wonder he walks around with a limp!

And then the Pyrenees trekking from DeGaube to Gavarnie with those multitudes of steps. One fit man...I guess it comes with the job. He works with....you guessed it... Australia Post!

Tony's two young boys came to the meeting and they sat in awe. I'm going to be like you Dad!
