Story

A few months ago myself and John " The Cockney Hobbit " Hughes had consumed strong drink (surprised?) and decided we needed to do something different for Hambo.  Having canoed parts of the route previously we decided this was too easy, so stupidly we decided I should paddle a tin bath 110 miles, and even more ridicously I agreed !!!!!  The Hobbit decided his part will comprise of the following: walking the whole route, mugging random strangers along the route and laughing at me every time I fall in.  We therefore need your help to raise as much money for the the charity as humanly possible.
