    IS there a final list of who is actually going on the trip!!!

    There have been so many threads on this trip and several people for various reasons being unable to take part I was wondering if there is actually a final list of those who will be setting off on this trip. It would be really good to know'
    If its available already can someone point me to it.

    Thanks

    The definitive list in no particular order, just as my Smirnoff addled brain recalls them :

    Outtomunch - Andres
    Bhud - Dave
    Nakambale - Gert
    Freeloader - Dave
    Neil 23 - Neil
    Crapaud - Sid
    Paintman - John
    Milk Tray Man - Glen
    Mikey - Mike
    Sockpuppet - Richard
    Thunder - Roger

    I'd better have got that right.

    likewise. Cabin fever is setting in and the liver needs new experiences.

    From what I have read on here there is little chance of that happening

    I have just had a financial adviser here to review just how much my pension has shrunk recently , See you guys are on the red out of habit, where as I have a good reason to off this bottle of Cab Sav.

    Regretfully its true, apparently its all down to financial restrictions imposed on the Royal protection squad by this bastid government, who see no value in our Royal Family.

    Sadly no

    He's still carried on offering and giving support and fund raising though, and has been a right brick*

    Andres

    * I think that's how you spell it

    That is a pity after all the good work he's done, and if memory serves correctly it was his idea

    Strike one more off the list

    'cos I've pulled out.

    Mainly because of the weather.

    I'd hoped to be riding from Calum's Road on Raasay to Calum's Road in The Gambia, but that changed to going no further than Morocco. Then Raasay became snow and ice bound, now even riding south from Fife could be precarious and possibly foolhardy, and France looks unwelcoming too. Now it looks like the only part of the trip that I'd actually enjoy doing is Morocco, and I wouldn't be going anywhere near either of the two Calum's Roads.

    The other thing bothering me because of the weather is leaving my better half on her own with 17 dogs in the depths of winter - she has balance problems at the best of times (alcohol not usually the cause ) - and add to that a dog pen which is basically an ice rink which has to be navigated to tend to the dogs. Normally we hardly ever see snow here so I didn't even consider that to be a problem a year ago, now it's a serious hazard I don't want her to have to face on her own.

    And yes, I am disappointed not to be doing this trip with the rest of the team.

    Maybe later...

    At the end of the day who goes and who doesn't doesn't really matter. Yes I'm absolutley sick at not going. And the old adage of the Colonel ain't scared cause the Colonel ain't going, could be used.
    I'm skint and can't afford to go but then again if If I was sponsored to do the trip it would be different. All sponsorship has gone to the charity so whatever people have donated has gone to the charity and not sponsoring some Tossers trip

    These guys whether the ones that have pulled out or still going deserve a serious pat on the back and some real respect for not only going on a ride on there bikes whether they go make it or turn back is nether her nor there.

    But they have raised enough to pay for a mile of road £35 fukin K so people can get basic health care rather than worry whether there road has been salted or not.


    Good luck guys and may the farce be with you



    p.s. I'm pished
