    Hi Lawrence

    Can’t see where you’ve got to but hope it’s going well and the sleeping bag is working well. Keep up the great work.

    best wishes

      Hi David,
      Many thanks for the comment. I would love to report that I am in Scandinavia as planned. Unfortunately, my girlfriend received some very unexpected health news at the very last minute which means my priorities in the near term have unavoidably changed.
      I am hoping my grand adventure will begin in late 2014. In the meantime, I will be using this website to collate images and videos from various micro-adventures that I am planning over the next few months. My budget is still impossibly small, so I will be staying relatively local (going as far as the train network/National Express will take me). It will hopefully give my girlfriend and I some respite from the challenges that lay ahead. It’ll also be a fine opportunity to rediscover the magic that I am sure you felt when doing John O’Groats to Land’s End.
      Anyway, enough of my talking! I hope you have been keeping well? How are the studies going?
      All the best,

    Hi Laurence

    Sorry to hear that – hope your girlfriend recovers quickly.
    Interesting website – very impressed by your Mum’s efforts – huge achievement.
    Hope you can get things sorted and embark.

    By the way – if you can send me a post address I have found a very nice net bag thing which belongs to the sleeping bag – you put it inside and it can live ‘expanded’ sort of thing, if you see what I mean. I can bung it in a jiffy bag and post it, no prob.
    Yes, thanks for best wishes – the studies progress – brain hurting quite a bit with reading all this theory! Mental equivalent of riding the bike for 10 hours a day!!

    ciao for now – don’t forget that address if you’d like the net bag

    best wishes
