I apologise for the lack of posts these past few weeks. Work is on the go, and the last thing I have wanted to do is to type at a computer. My mind has also been occupied with other things…namely the following development in the 14degrees journey:
My bicycle has been sent home.
That thing on top of my boxed up bike is a skateboard. On it I will skateboard the rest of the way to England. Along the Rhine river it is!
Once in England I will figure out the logistics of skateboarding across North America. If successful, I will be the first person to skateboard across North America solo and unassisted.
I will be carrying all I need to survive on my back in a backpack. It currently weighs about 8kgs without food or water.
For the past week I have been in Leysin, Switzerland. It has been a wonderful end to a great season with Village Camps. I really enjoyed working with the staff, and this week’s students were a definite highlight.
On Monday the 25th of June I will walk down the hill with my skateboard in my hand and my backpack on my back. It will all begin again.
Stay tuned for more info…
To be revealed in further posts:
- How will I slow myself down on the hills?
- How will I save my shoes from excessive wear?
- How will I measure my speed and distance covered?
- What will I be carrying?
- What is my route?
- How did I come up with this new challenge?
- and much much more…
