...so over the last few weeks I've been reading some great blogs about interesting people doing exciting mini adventures.
Alistair Humprhey's posted about an overnight micro adventure a few weeks back. He's just followed up with a 24 hour bivy challenge. Ever since his first post, I've been hatching a plan to leave work one evening on my bike and head for the hills. I'll take a tarp to make a bivy tent. My little old camping gas burner to brew tea and fry sausages. Loads of clothes and a sleeping bag.
Then I read this great post on the Surly blog and convinced myself I needed a whole different bike, and all sorts of different equipment...well of course, I don't.
But what about bears? Or, er, spooky noises?
