2000 ACRES OF SKYE

Alioli and i are off to the Isle of Skye for a week tonight, if it rains (if !) i have plenty of badass reading. I've purposefully not started on this months BSH and only done a chapter of No Angel (lent by Tiddles) then today Guy sent me Tony Thompson's Outlaws book and latest GKM, best not forget me ready readers.


The only person i know of who comes from Skye is Danny MacAskill. In 2009 he worked in a cycle shop in Edinburgh then his friend made this film and put it on Youtube.



Within a week it had over a million hits and the fame brought him sponsorship from Red Bull enabling him to make the film Way Back Home the story of a journey from Edinburgh to Skye. If you havent seen it there is a link at the end of Inspired Bicycles, it is THE best thing on Youtube, really.

and i will never forgive Michelle Collins for Kenny getting drowned...
and there had better be Puffins...

Back a week on Sunday.

No Angel is a good read, if you haven't read Under and Alone, it is another good one in the same vein.

Make sure you climb The Old Man of Storr, including the last bit to touch him, very rewarding :o)
