My first roadside care package

So after my restless night under attack from the local vermin I set out on the road. Just before I hit the road I got speaking to some ladies who were walking their dogs. Both very friendly and offering to help. Focused on getting going I hit the road. The first shop was 10 miles […]

Under attack…

Last night I was staying in a camp ground just outside Gualala, California. I arrived, set up camp and went for a shower. On my return my neighbour let me know that there had been a rustling sound from around my tent. When I got to my stroller, where I keep my food, I found […]

A QUICK NOTE TO FOLLOWERS AND SUPPORTERS – ACCESS TO WIFI

Hi all, thank you so much for all your interest, support and offers of help. They are really appreciated. I am trying to reply to all emails, keep my blog up-to-date, upload videos and get certificates out on time but access to the internet has been limited since Arcata and may remain so till San […]

Highway 1 – Beauty and the Beast

All the way down the coast everyone has been telling me just how amazing Highway 1 is. While tight and twisty, the views were going to be breath-taking. After my “rest” at Soul Camp, I set off once again. My first mission was to buy supplies as my father had kindly researched the route (something […]

SOUL CAMP BABY

So last Friday (19/09/14) I set off from Benbow KOA with the intention of hitting Highway 1. It was a 40km run and would set me at the beginning of what was meant to be the most beautiful part of my trip so far. It was hot, very hot, and this would be the 6th […]

Meeting fellow Macmillan fundraisers

After my interview with Channel 3, I hit the road once again and today I was heading to the Avenue of Giants. This is the old highway that runs through the Humboldt Redwoods State Park and is lined with HUGE redwood pines. When I say they are huge, I mean huge. There were so many […]

A radio interview on KMUD

So following my interview on Channel 3, Allan managed to set up an interview on the local radio station – KMUD http://m.soundcloud.com/kmudnews/uk-runner-raising-awareness-about-male-suicide-cancer-clean-water Thank you Allan for sorting!!!

I’m on the telly…

So after Jon’s great work as my PR guru I had an interview with Channel 3 (a local TV station). I got the call at 9am and had 30 minutes to prepare which meant that the hot shower would have to be skipped. At least the reporter would get the full traveller version of Jamie […]

One of those days I love – 65k+

So following my lavender bath and copious amount of sugar I was back on the road and heading south. Now today I had a very clear strategy – head to Fortuna, 40km away, and be sensible. That’s not entirely how it panned out… To get to Fortuna I needed to take the Freeway, something I […]
