Hatching a Plan

I’m hatching a plan for a microadventure tomorrow.

It’s going to involve slightly less epic versions of



The Caveman Diaries


Sunset on Scafell: the highest point in England


Packrafting the River Þjórsá

and then


It will also involve

"No, Al" I say to myself


New Razor Time

and possibly

Crisp, Dry, and Bittersweet

And that is about the grand total of my plan so far. Should be fun!

You don’t need to plan. You just need to do.

We start tomorrow.


Ridiculously low water levels in the rivers.
I’m ditching the

Packrafting the River Þjórsá

and packing this instead…

Smithfield Nocturne
