The Why Not? Blog

At the tender age of 25 Dave started skateboarding. 14 months later he became the first person to skate the length of Britain. Another 8 months on he had crossed Australia on his board, breaking a world record & raising over £20,000 for three charities. Now, at 27, he's writing his first book, is a motivational speaker and a businessman, and he's only just gotten started on a lifetime of challenges which from the outside look just darn crazy. So, why? You know the answer, don't you. Why not?

Is it Christmas?

What a cracking couple of days! Yesterday, post blog, the new leaflets arrived. I look a little moody, but some will say determined. I prefer determined. The thing is, when 10,000 leaflets arrive on your doorstep there will always be a flash of panic. Please god, don't let there be any spelling mistakes. There weren't. cracking!

And then came the cour de grace. At 11:08 I put out a request on the forum, asking if anyone has a spare campervan we could use as a BFUK support vehicle. Two hours later we have a van, generously donated by It's a beauty and is going to make a massive difference to the UK journey.

Another training run in the afternoon with Sam was tiring and windy but here are the stats, sponsored by Garmin!
Miles travelled: 10.4
Moving Time: 58 mins 48 seconds
Maximum Speed: 15.7mph
Moving Average: 10.7mph
