Wow Scotland is an extremely pretty place. The drive from Glasgow to Glencoe area was dark and blizzardy but didn’t give us any problems and then B&B we sayed in (Fern Villa) was very nice.

Day one: Both local resorts were closed due to 80+ mph winds so we went for a nice 2 hour drive to Cairngorm which had half the mountain open and only 60 mph winds!

 

Day two & three: Over at Glencoe. Half the mountain open and plenty of snow – Photo’s below!

 

Got LOADS of GoPro footage to go through before making some sort of video… watch this space!

Well as some of you know I’ve gone and done something silly… Signed up to Tough Mudder on the 12th July 2014.

Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses, over 1 million participants, and more than $6 million raised for the Wounded Warrior Project, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world. 

The team has been formed!

Now to ask you guys for some donations! Tough Mudder is all about raising money for Help for Heroes and while I would love you guys & gals to donate out of the goodness of your own heart I’m going to throw some crazy incentives out there to watch me suffer even more!

Fundraising Goals:

£100 – I will (attempt) to have an epic (most likely terrible) handlebar moustache for the event.
£200 – MOHAWK! I will visit the on site mohawk station and get shaved!
£350 – Legs (below knee) waxed
… More to come as I think of stuff and everything will be filmed for your entertainment.
