    The guy is superhuman. I feel privileged to have shared the odd lift ride and glass of red with him in the Bar Pit this season. Superb effort from a great guy :woohoo::woohoo::woohoo:

    And he won't even stop for a celebratory beer. Would like to end the day with a couple of thousand up on the million. Meanwhile the rain appears to be holding off from the mount.

    This is all too easy for Normo. He needs to elevate the difficulty level. Maybe do it blindfolded or skiing backwards? At the very least do it on a snowboard or on teles!

    Congratulations on an amazing effort. You have had to overcome a few obstacles this year, so it must be especially satisfying :)

    No time to rest, still 14 days to go, time to easily knock up another 100,000 ;)

    Well done Normo, impressive achievement.
    Just needed someone with a go pro to capture the magic million mark and upload it to you tube.
    Us mere mortals could also admire the technique and maybe emulate your awesomeness, one day, maybe.

    Fantastic achievement. I don't know you but it seems that there is a lot of love around here for you. Maybe one day we'll share a chair. Top effort.

    There's gonna be a change of cast if that 'Life be in it' campaign ever gets another run. We'll see a very different Normo for sure!

    If it is not a PB don't stroke the man's ego, tell him to get out there some more and beat it.
