Sunday 14th May 2017 - In the final vlog before I head out to Canada to start my Chasepalooza storm chasing adventure, I get in some much needed sparring.
Sunday 14th May 2017 I never sleep the night before a flight. There’s a worry that somehow I’ll oversleep and miss it, that I need to sacrifice that time to make sure I’ve packed everything. At the time of writing, I still have items strewn across my living room. I still worry I’m going to [...]
In today's vlog I start charging up all my batteries needed for storm chasing, plus I find time to go swordfighting!
Wednesday 10th May 2017 I woke up with a scratchy throat this morning and I wonder if this touch of illness has put me a little off colour today. This has been the first day where I really didn’t enjoy vlogging. Maybe the novelty has worn off but I found I was asking myself why [...]
Monday 8th May 2017 And like that, I’m suddenly a vlogger! Whilst I’ve been filming content since Saturday, the first vlog didn’t go live until late last night. And I woke this morning to find the reception has been very positive. I’m very much framing this exercise as a precursor to chasing. I have no [...]

Saturday 29th April 2017 I woke at 4am with the view that perhaps my strategy of having a ‘blow out’ before a weekend of writing was a bad one. I drank a load of water and felt queasy for about an hour, before falling back asleep. I woke at 8am, 12 hours after I not [...]
Thursday 27th April 2017 I dream of a day… I dream of a day when I can get more than five hours sleep before having to get up and ready for work. I dream of an evening where upon coming back from town I have the energy to do more than just sit and procrastinate [...]
Wednesday 26th April 2017 I’m going to be so knackered tomorrow. It’s currently 1:45am as I sit down to start writing up The Climb and I’ve already had a really hectic day! Although saying that, it was a collection of a number of small, random and relatively insignificant events rather anything I can really get [...]
