    My friend, you are, without a doubt awesome. Many years ago when the world was young and I was thin, I dreamed of having similar adventures. Now you are allowing me to live vicariously through your agony and unrelenting humor. I see no reason why you could not, at a later date work this into a book. I would willingly pay $25 for a hardback. Perhaps even a movie. Good luck and God bless, you just picked up a 400 lb. passenger.

    Awfully pretty photo, there. I hope your trip is going well, and I look forward to updates as you go along!

    I wish I had the time and cash to do something like this, but I suppose if I work at it...

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the support, chaps. I doubt there will be a book this time (been done many times before and for worthy causes too) but there's a chance I'll be writing one with a friend in the next few years, before we're too old and before someone else does the 'challenge' we'd be doing. A world record attempt of sorts, in aid of various charities.

    I mention that also because we'd be looking for sponsorship. VERY hypothetically, what do you all think of our chances of getting some free hammocking / general camping gear in return for effusive thanks, fair reviews, some more PC writing than the current blog AND a chance to well and truly break into the cycle touring market?

    Snugpak underblanket

    Hey buddy,

    I've just finnished readin your blog so far. It had me laughing out loud in parts and I really cool journey. I did a month around France a few years ago so that part really go me going. I remember cycling to the worlds biggest supermarket there on one sunday dreaming of fresh food only for the whole place including 24hr Maccy Ds closed up. Then had to do laps of the town to find the one open bakery before they closed up at midday.

    Anyway my question is, how do you get on with the warbonnet and the snugpak under quilt? I just got a warbonnet from Matt and have the underblanket from previous hammocks but loads of people say it doesnt work? I've not had time to test it yet but I guess by now you must be the expert on it.

    Many thanks,

    I'll keep reading your blog!

    Alex, so you know exactly what the French are like.

    As for the WBBB + Snugpak I haven't tried another UB but I think the two are perfectly matched. In winter (or early spring in the UK) with the mozzie net folded away, the Snugpak is wide enough to come all the way around the hammock like a peapod, and has little hoops that I've fitted mini carabiners and elastic to to keep it shut around me. Only below zero have I needed a top quilt as well!

    Send me a PM and give me a little while since I'm on the road, and I'll show you a couple of images of how I set them up together.

    If you haven't bought the Snugpak yet, shop around. There's one site that sells it ten quid cheaper than the other(s).

    Cheers. I'm not sure I am with the visa stuff and the 'no trees for thousands of miles' but that will at least fuel a readable rant or two on the blog!
