Hatching a Plan

I’m hatching a plan for a microadventure tomorrow.

It’s going to involve slightly less epic versions of

kon-tiki

and

The Caveman Diaries

and

Sunset on Scafell: the highest point in England

and

Packrafting the River Þjórsá

and then

Microadventure

It will also involve

"No, Al" I say to myself

and

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.

EDIT

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

Packrafting the River Þjórsá

and packing this instead…

Smithfield Nocturne

  3. Oh Gentlemen… Those moustaches are special. Are they somehow critical to the success of the trip?

  4. Brilliant way to introduce your microadventure, I love it.

    If you two are combining your skills to make a video together, I can’t wait to see it.
