Update: I’m unfortunately having to pull out of this.
I’m doing 55 mile walk around Manchester – The Bogle – an onroad event which consists of a ~30mile south loop round Cheadle and the airport, and a ~26 mile northern loop taking in much of northern Manchester.
The route is intensely challenging – the impact of 56 miles of continuous road travel will take it’s toll ony my body and the psychological challenges after 18+ hours of walking will be intense and raw.
This will be quite there are various places people in which people can help:
- Training walks
I’m planning to do some training for the event by walking some of the route beforehand so I know what works and what doesn’t – could you help keep me company on some?
- On the day, remote support team
On the day, I’ll start at midnight on a Friday night and walk through the night and following day. Could you form part of a remote support team, providing moral support, news, and a friendly voice (via telecommunication magic) whilst I’m on the move?
Can you help me? Please do get in touch either by email – td(AT)tdobson.net or phone – 0800 112 6000
I’m fund-raising for mySociety – they are the people behind TheyWorkForYou, WriteToThem, WhatDoTheyKnow – and other projects that make British democracy more user-friendly and accessible! I’m hoping to do some creative fundraising things – if you had any ideas here – I’d be very happy to hear them, or equally happy if you just wanted to throw a few pennies in their direction
Who says that hiking has nothing to do with digital rights? Today I walked up Bowfell in the Lake District (from Dungeon Ghyll, Langdale) in the beautiful snow!
Any analogue or digital boys and girls are more than welcome to come hiking sometimes and chat about their thoughts and concerns. Hiking transcends usual boundaries.
I am very tired now thoug; as my friend Zhelyo said,
“Being alive can be too much fun sometimes!”
