I as i write this i’m sorting and packing my kit, ready to head up to the Highlands for a week or so. The plan is to walk from Durness, the most northwesterly village on mainland Britain, heading south for a few days of camping, testing out my bushcraft skills, practise a bit of photography but also simply take in this amazing part of the UK. It’s also a break from all the sponsorship chasing, email drafting and general prep work for more expedition.

You can follow my adventures via twitter where i will be tweeting every now and again and perhaps sharing some pictures too. Each tweet will (hopefully) show my position so can track my progress.

As Chris McCandless put it, ‘I know walk into the wild’….(well sort of).
