Homeward Bound


Sitting in the carpark in Calais waiting for the train to take me back to blighty! Nice of eurotunnel to have free wifi. It's been a very windy journey so far, the mobilehome has not been fun to drive in it., Hopefully England will be calmer, but Mike will have to deal with that, as I will be trying to snooze.

Speak to you soon

Very hot here in Puurs. Quite a small town, with the Duvel brewery making up most of it. Went to a local town, Mechelen ? maybe, where I took these photos. Today was a sort of day off, except that I had to spend about 6 hours coding. So now that I have finished I'm off to sample very strong beer.

Austria Continued

The event has finished. Packed up, ready to go to Belgium. However we have to upload some editted video to the news collection website but our internet was cut in Innsbruk, so we have come back to Imst where we will stay the night while it uploads. Heading to Belgium tomorrow. 

Got some photos coming soon, but in the meantime enjoy a panorama from outside my 'office'. (if you care for the technical details, the photo is made from many photos and is 16194x3409 pixels - but as it is over 200mb I wont put it here )

Yet again my apologies for lack of updates, but as usual its been mental. We are doing this event from two venues. We did the 1st yesterday in Imst, Speed finals, Lead qualifiers and an opening ceremony. So we left there at 00:30 and drove to Innsbruck, where we had to cable up the venue. We did a lot of it last night, fortunately it is a small place, and went to bed at 2:30. Woke up at 6:30. No photos yet, but today is the last hectic day, things get smoother now there are fewer competitors.

See you soon

Setup in Scotland

Journey up last night was easy - but slow, as the mobile home can't go faster than 60. I went to sleep at 12, after Ade took over the driving. Managed to sleep all the way, undisturbed, to the carpark at the venue ( we arrived at about 2) but was woken at 5 with a security guard wondering what we were doing there !

Baked alive

We have had a heat wave. None of this half-baked nonsense either. A full blown one. The lowest the temperature has got since arriving here in Hungary was 24 degrees, at 3 in the morning. I have sweat/salt stained shirts, it has become so bad that i am wearing 2 of them each day. God I am looking forward to cold rainy blighty !
