Guy tries to ride on all of Melbourne’s trains in one day

tracking-tully.jpgI was thinking the other day of how long it would take someone to ride each tram route from source to destination. Would it be possible to do it a day? Sure I guess if “nothing” went wrong but who would willingly want to stay on a tram for that long. Well, a guy called Heath Tully has set out on a similar mission to ride the entire train network of Melbourne.

Telstra and Connex have joined forces in this odd mission and he is providing instant updates via his phone/computer. I think more commendable is the overall prowess of completing 183 completely random goals before he is 30. Some of them are fairly easy “38. Do the Sydney Harbour Bridge walk” and some could be quite difficult such as “18. Meet Sir Richard Branson”. Good luck on completing 141.

    I’m just glad that nothing went wrong, and I got through the 18.3 hours unscathed.

    Thanks for the well wishes about my journey Neil – glad you liked the idea. Good luck with doing the same thing with the tram network.

    Well, given it took you most of the day to ride the trains, I would say it would probably take a fair few days to ride all of the trams.
