Crikey! A new post…

I know it’s been a bit quiet on here recently. What with heading to India and Tajikistan last Summer, the winter was one of staying in the UK and working. However, the summer’s here again and the first stop on the list was, where else, Piemonte in Northern Italy. We rocked up just in time to miss the Val Sesia River Festival, which was pretty typical. Anyway, rather than go on about it all to much, here’s some pictures to give you a flavour of what we got up to….

After extensive filming, editing, arguing and pots of tea, the long anticipated sequel to Mal Bilbow’s seminal kayaking film ‘Means Of Production’, ‘Means Of Production 2 This Time It’s Personal’ had it’s Gala Premiere in Leeds one chilly late November evening. Well over 100 priviledged souls descended to see the film in it’s HD glory before heading to Tiger Tiger to hotenanny into the wee small hours.

Max, the man of the moment.

The world’s most glamourous roadie.

‘I know Kung Fu.’ ‘Show me…’

And I would’ve gotten away with it, if it wasn’t for you pesky kids…

Sorry, words escape me with this one.

Keeping the sponsors happy…

Tom’s Guide to Getting the Horn…

Step 1: Select a suitable purveyor. There are lots of charlatans and ne’r do wells out there, so don’t rush into anything.

Reconaissance is everything. I scan what’s on offer. Note the use of sunnies to preclude any unwanted eye contact.

Step 2: The negotiations. Once you have selected a stall that has the type of horn you are looking for, you need to enter into negotiations surrounding the price.

The bartering process. Only those with nerves of steel will be rewarded. Note the testing of the merchandise and the cheesy grin to put the stall holder at ease.

Step 3: Sealing the deal

After a true clash of the titans, the deal is sealed with the traditional handshake and I leave, thoroughly satisfied  with my rather impressive horn.
