The Night Before..........

Thank you James for your donation.

We have finally arrived at our camp site. We had a great journey down here, but collecting the motorhome was a bit fraught, but all is well now. It may come as a surprise to most people that know us, but we are now in the campsite bar having a beer. We have been forced to do this in order to get a WIFI signal. A great thing this modern technology.

I need to mention my Mum, I received an e mail from her today, her first. She is now on t'internet for the first time via her new IPAD. A silver surfer (A bit like me), well done Mum !!!!

It's a bit chaotic in the camper van......can we find anything....No......Have we brought everything....we don't know yet

Paul speaking now...

I had a couple of messages from my daughters - good to know that they are worried about me!!!

Also a message from my old mate Darren - ex keyboard player in the most excellent and, world famous band.. Simply Crap. Darren turned his back on the fame, adulation and wealth to leave the band for a simpler life in Cornwall some years ago - but he's going to meet up with us tomorrow evening at the end of our first day of riding, at Holsworthy - which is a few miles away from where he now lives in idyllic exile, contemplating what fame and fortune he might have enjoyed with 'The Crap' - (ha ha) - see you tomorrow Daz!! - bring your money!!!

Okay - back to Gaz....

Thanks to all who have left messages of support.

A special thanks to Greg and Bob. Good to hear from you Bob, hope you are having a great time living in France. Do you remember the training for the Three Peaks, when you hurt your leg and could only walk in circles. Happy days, I think you aged about ten years over that weekend.

AND so the journey begins............

  1. Well boys(and gals) great to see you all tonight and cant believe how fresh you both looked! Without getting too soppy i have to say i feel very proud and tell your story to all my friends and colleagues. With all the things you do you always do them properly and i have no doubt you will complete this and have w real adventure. Good luck all, wish i was fit enough to do it with you. Daz.
    P.s. paul the option is on the first settings page and called personal hotspot. I cant recall seeing that on your phone so there maybe an update required. Tras is on version 4.3.2 (settings, general, about)
