Welcome to the daily blog – a list of mindless ramblings from a confused adult with a child’s mind embarking on a stupidly long distance skateboarding trek so he can party with some old friends.
It all kicked off back on 30th May. Starting line was Brighton Pier and then onto Newhaven for the ferry to Dieppe, tactically chosen so that I didn’t have to spend one single night dwelling in the hedgerows of the UK.
I planned to keep this long distance skateboarding blog updated daily (power permitting) with events, progress, pics of my freeze dried evening meals etc (so my mum’s mind is put at rest if nothing else). It was just supposed to be a blog – bullet points of the daily activities. Then I discovered I like writing. Then everything started to go wrong, then right, onto perfection and then straight to the bottom of the barrel. When I have finished, this will then be a complete “balls out” documentation of a seriously misguided adventure. I made a lot of mistakes! I battled through adversity. If it happened to me, it’s going down in writing! No shame, no pride. Brutal honesty.
You can comment on the topics if you like…. and, please do! It’d be nice knowing that people are out there hearing my screams.
NB. I will not apologise for any of the foul language used! Unless it’s you mum, in which case, I’m really, really sorry.
