It’s been a busy few months since I decided to start the ball (bike?!) rolling towards leaving on a long bicycle adventure in early 2015. I won’t bore you with the gory details, but suffice to say I have now survived laser eye surgery, getting up to date at the dentist and two rounds of immunisation injections (two more to go!). I feel a bit like the bionic man now.
I’m pleased to have made a good start with selling many of my bulkier, higher value items (motorcycle, mountain bikes, boat etc). Now the next four weeks will be a fairly intense push to sell the rest of my house contents and finish the handover process at work (back on full time hours plus to get that done!).
All being well, I will finish my job at the university on 19th December &complete on the house very soon after. I’ll spend Christmas in Scotland and then return to the Northwest of England for a few weeks to complete kit preparations and get everything in order for my planned departure on Saturday 17th January 2015. I plan to leave from Glossop (bound for Staffordshire) around 11am on Sat.17 Jan, so if anyone fancies meeting up for a brew and a final farewell, I’ll be at the Co-op cafe in the centre of Glossop from 10am. If anyone fancies pedalling out of Glossop with me, I’d be glad of the company on any part of day one (or any other day for that matter) – remembering of course that I’ll be on a fully laden round-the-world touring rig, so won’t be blasting up any hills!!
I aim to post more regularly now that things are really starting to take shape, certainly I’ll be adding to the sale items feed on a much more regular basis.
