This weekend started so well!!
It was Rochester sweeps festival which involves.. well… Dancing and more dancing and some waking about… all with fantastic people! So that was pretty damn awesome and is exactly what this whole fit enough to dance in a mask project was all about!!
First the path was closed then the detour (as with all good detours) left me in the middle of nowhere then a dog attacked some sheep (not my dog…I don’t have one) then it rained for the next 5 hours!
So miserable was it that I stopped after 14miles… still in the plus side I did 14 miles 🙂
Monday involved more dancing…well a long procession and then a little bit of dancing at Hastings Jack in the Green festival… it would have been fun… but there was so much rain!! Still there was dancing and that is always good!!
Despite the weekends wet drawbacks, it has reminded me of something…I am a damn sight fitter than I used to be…I have turned into a person who can sandwich a 14 mile walk in between two days of dance without crippling myself!! this, my friends is progress!! 😀
Or an awesome walk in Northern Scotland…
We are currently mis grand ad-van-ture, and a couple of days ago we went in a walk…over some hills in between mountains to a beach which was inaccessible any other way (apart from the really wet way).
The beach was Sandwood Bay and if you are ever in the area you should go on an expedition!
It was a windy cold not quite raining day in Scotland and it was totally worth it!!! The place was amazing!!
And not only that it counted as 14km of walking training up and down some hills 😁
More grand ad-van-ture news to follow 😁

I marched. I marched for equality. I marched to prove that one man does not speak for all. I marched to show the world that those who can stand up will stand up. I marched because it is time to take a stand for what is right in a world filled with lies and madness. […]
Good morning 😀
I promise some exercise related content will appear here shortly…
In the mean time have a look at the latest adventure of the little red van… or better yet…follow the blog 😀 (yes…another shameless plug!!)
In case the fairy lights reference didn’t give it away…this is a xmas based post…
It is a relatively short ad-van-ture but bears a mention because it forms in important part of van history. Important because it was our xmas present. Our outlandishly extravagant xmas present…well…not outlandishly extravagant really…it will be awesome as we will be able to use it for adventures for years!! and we will go away far more often than we ever would without it 😀
I have a suspicion that with the amount of coffee I drink, just taking the facility to make our own coffee with us on day trips will save us a fortune 😉
Anyway…back to the adventure…as the van was our xmas present we thoght it only right that we took it out on xmas day when we went to spend the day with family 🙂
and because it was xmas…we thought it only…

Go and have a look ad the first adventure of the little red van…
If you are feelign super generous or exited to know more about the fantastic ad-van-tures to come then follow my other blog 😀
Ad-van- ture one is also the first time I drove the van… which is more of a challenge than it sounds…
I may have forgotten to tell you that is is a left hand drive beastie! which presents a whole lot of challenges in a country where you drive on the left hand side of the road…
Things like the steering wheel being on the wrong side of the car, like changing gear with your right hand not your left hand, like the gears being in a completely different position on the stick to your other car, like your perception of road position being constantly challenged…
This steering wheel is not where I feel it should be! My advice to you, is, if you are going to try to overcome all of these difficulties, don’t do it 5 mins before attempting to drive up the biggest hill in your area…
