As darkness fell last night the rain intensified. There was no safe way to walk the edge of the busy narrow mountain road as cars sped by in poor visibility. I needed shelter. And I found it - this workers wagon up on a hill. Though didn't spend the night in it but under it. The Herzog of 1974 would have forced the lock. But though cramped I was dry whilst rain tumbled down for twelve hours. Walked on this morning and as I dropped down into the valley then sun came out.

About Me

I'm an independent writer on wilderness activities, slow adventures, traditional horsemanship and odd stuff. I'm the author of Paddle; A long way around Ireland (Sort Of Books), and i was the story consultant on the IMAX documentary on cowboy cultures across the globe, Ride Around The Word. The Slow Adventure sends reports back from the front-line of a slow and simple life; horses, kayaks, guitars, long walks, travel, books, simplicity, trains, travel, wildlife and the occasional thrill.
