It has been a while, 3 months have passed since my last blog entry, three interesting months.
After our last trip around Scotland I really started to get my teeth into my van conversion, my new home for a while, and biking really took a hit, all my weekends were about the van and not much else. It was so worth it though, full van entry to follow soon but the van is a perfect little home, there are a few teething problems but am sorting those and loving getting out more in the van.
In other news I was made redundant, I had that sickly horrible feeling for a few hours, then pulled my socks up and got some work sorted. I was to do some design work for a mate for a week, somehow this turned into being a trainee plumber and learning to install biomass boilers, wood burning stoves and solar panels. I am loving the job, I am always busy which is a nice change, learning loads and come March I will be off on my adventure to Europe. Beats sitting behind a desk every day that’s for sure, bit of a culture shock but in a good way. Who knows what the future holds, at least I know mine has adventure and challenges! My new job allows me to take my van to some lovely places too, it really is perfect right now.
Having not been on the bike much in three months I was really excited to go on a ride with Glasgow Meetup around Arrochar, somewhere new for me to ride, and it was stunning. We got a lovely crisp but dry winters day, the scenery was spectacular, the riding was fantastic and the banter was in full flow, I can’t wait to get back to Scotland and ride more in 2016.
I am currently in Gibraltar visiting my family for Christmas and New Year, have a good one folks and see you on the trails soon!
