How to Complete the National 3 Peaks Challenge in 24 Hours

National 3 Peaks Challenge

As I type this, it’s a week on from our National 3 Peaks Challenge. This time last week we were en route from Ben Nevis to Scafell Pike in Bumper. The National Three Peaks Challenge was harder than I expected and I think I’m still feeling some of the effects from it…or it could just be work, who knows! Ha! I did the National Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for Kirkwood Hospice. To find out more about the challenge, read on!

The 7 Best Things to Do in Hay-on-Wye


Looking for things to do in Hay on Wye? Me (Joel) and an old friend of mine, Rob, headed to Hay on Wye for a bit of a lads weekend to catch up and enjoy a bit of kayaking. Rob came down on his brand-new Royal Enfield Himalayan and I went in Bumper, of course. We both came from the Midlands and unfortunately, Rob got caught in severe traffic and heavy rain, which led to a rather wet and late arrival. So wet, he could wring his gloves out Ha! But despite that, we had a cracking weekend catching up over a few beers, coffees and paddles on the River Wye. Read on to find out more about the town!

A Weekend at Autograss Racing – An Outsider’s View

Autograss Racing

Have you ever been Autograss Racing? No? Nor us. Life is all about new experiences, right? I (Joel) have a philosophy of “don’t knock it until you’ve tried it”.

Trying it confirmed it was boring. Sorry, fishing fans! Ha! Anyway, we went to an Autograss racing weekend…

Athens

Athens…We travelled during the Covid-19 pandemic. Was it doomed from the start? We think not, and we took the risk of travel corridors being shut while we were overseas. It’s been a long time since we jumped on a plane. We returned from Lisbon on the 3rd January and haven’t been on a plane since…until now.

Wonderful Warsaw

What do you do when you have a free weekend off and a couple of days off the following week? You book a weekend break to wonderful Warsaw, of course! Our most spontaneous trip to date! I booked the flights in my lunch break on Friday afternoon and we flew at 0610 the follow morning. It just so happened Joel had a week off and I didn’t but after mentioning this to my boss he asked if I wanted a couple of days off, to which I said ‘yes’.
