Saturday 1st July 2017 Danny is one of my oldest friends. 25 years ago we worked in the same voluntary organisation, and when I was I charge of national recruitment he was one of the regional coordinators. However, back then Danny wasn’t the type of person who looked charitable. In fact, if you met him [...]
Thursday 18th May 2017 - I get in some last minute shopping and geocaching as our plans take a dramatic change.
Just to let everyone know that I'll be appearing on the Geocaching Show, GeoGearHeads, this Thursday Night (Friday Morning in the UK) to talk about the software tool, GSAK.

So what do you do when you’ve done the impossible? Well you raise the bar up and challenge yourself again. Following my 133 solo cache find day last month I’ve been feeling pretty proud of myself. I realise that personal challenges are just that and may mean absolutely nothing to anyone else, but for me [...]
Friday saw me in the Nene Valley near Kettering. Having finished my course in Birmingham earlier that day and due in Cambridge on Saturday it made sense to travel direct and stop off along the way to do some Geocaching. […]
Over the years I have worked for a number of companies that say they offer training and then in reality never do. So when the day job offered to send me to Birmingham for the week, I jumped at the chance. Whereas for most people a week away, stuck in a hotel, sounds like hell, [...]
I know there will be those that say that doing the impossible no longer makes it impossible. Likewise there will be those that say that my leg obviously can’t be that bad if I managed what I did on Monday. The truth is that for all my careful planning, all my insight, all my knowing [...]
