A while back I watched a program on the BBC called “Chris Packham: The Walk That Made Me“. He sets out and walks 10 miles from Eastleigh to Winchester near Southampton, along the River Itchen and the Itchen Navigation canal, … Continue reading

The air temperature last night was 12 degrees Celsius, right in the Goldilocks zone, not too hot and not too cool, perfect for a night turf on the kick scooter. It’s the temperature I like, good for shorts and t-shirt, … Continue reading

Out for my Daily-Five this morning, an easy kick scoot on the Swifty Air around Bonnyrigg. It was nice to have no fixed plan to take all the zones, as is my usual modus operandi, just scooting a random circuit, … Continue reading

Household jobs first, turf second. And that job is redecorating the bathroom. Okay, it’s not a very large bathroom and a good portion of it is tiled but there’s still a good amount of painting to do. Of course, it’s … Continue reading

Tomorrow sees the end of round #142 and the start of the next turf round. Yes, you’ve guessed correctly, round #143. My turf activities during round #142 have been rather poor, I just haven’t had the impetus to get out … Continue reading

Now fully refueled, but with tired legs from kick scooting 13 miles, and with all 26 zones dotted along the Loch Leven Heritage Trail in the bag, I now wanted to collect the 20 zones in the town of Kinross. … Continue reading

This wasn’t my first visit to Loch Leven, a national nature reserve located beside Kinross in the Kingdom of Fife (most people would say Fife, but Fifers* say the Kingdom of Fife). I’d been here before once with my wife … Continue reading
