National Council

Weird times, went up Pembroke after working at The Potheridge. Didn't realise it was a double bank holiday, did some cool climbing round St Davids, very similar to Culm coast but 10 times more solid. Then it rained, still manage to surf at Aberidy which was ace and so the cycle begin. Climb rocks when not raining surf when it was (or drink tea).

Not a bad way to spend a week but i was there for other reasons. The BMC National council meeting.

What the? This was the first National council meeting i ve ever been to having volunteered to be a rep for the south west.

I know me at a meeting laughable isn't it, still i was there, still have know idea what am supposed to be doing or saying but at least i can vote.

Vote oh my god? for what more tea?
There is a BMC south west meeting at 8pm on Saturday 14th July @ the Radjel Inn, Pendeen. Mainly to discuss Shane Ohly's proposals for the removal of all "drilled gear". Touchy subject i know it was voted on at the last fixed gear meeting last year and anything else that needs to be discussed.

Farewell to Da Wales

So the North Wales part of our road trip is coming to an end, its been fun. We've done loads of Mountain walking, met some cool guys. Rick the demi god Abbott, Andy the dude Newton and a special guest appearance from grumpy Pete (not Greening). The second week was spent running a Mountain Leader training course, surprisingly all the students enjoyed there time, surprising? well yeah as most thought it was just 7 days of walking up hill.

But no umpteen million skill can be gained and used in other circumstances. Of to the Lakes next more fun but more climbing prior to our Peak Grit extravaganza.

Impersonating a Padller

Some times things in life change. Sometimes things happen out of your control. Sometimes life reminds you of thing you love but you just forgot about them.

For years ave been mosseee the climber dude, you know what i still am but i all so love paddling cause its good old wholesome fun.

I forgot about it, luckily i've had the chance to work with some amazing coaches, these coaches have inspire me and Hannah to boat.

It also had me thinking what makes a good coach? There is only one answer to fully inspire.

So what else is happening in our mad cap world? well at the minute we are on a five week road trip with AITP, a college course from duchy college. We've done a weeks paddling in South Wales now we are in North Wales doing Prep for an ML next week. So till then Peace out Brother.
