Cabin in the woods

BookRix


A travel guide on where to go and what to do if you are on a vacation on the North West Coast of the English Riviera.

Like most of rural Britain, Cornwall is a ramblers paradise, and the coastal views are a tremendous and welcomed break from the dilapidation of the concrete jungles of a metropolitan world.

So join me on a journey of comical mishaps and great scenic adventures in and around the environs of St. Ives.

The Gift of St. David

BookRix


Because I am an avid rambler of the British countryside, someone suggested that I should take a walk along the coast of Pembrokeshire as it is a mirror image of my passion in hiking; that being the North Cornish Coast. I wasn't to be disappointed, and so I decided to spend a few days at the quaint village of Manorbier, which is just over 50 miles west of Swansea in South Wales.

This was to be my finale of the year for treading Britain's natural countryside, and Manorbier became the autumn recluse for my finale of trekking for 2013 in the wilds of glorious Wales.

The Hollow by the Mere

BookRix


In April 1990 I decided to leave the domestic hell of a relationship that saw my long time girlfriend throw me to the streets, in an attempt for her to find a better love elsewhere, and in doing so, she left me naturally homeless. I could have stayed with friends or relations, but those sort of agreements are always short lived, and I would only end up back at square one and ultimately on the streets again. Because of the summer being just around the corner I decided that I would like to spend a few weeks of camping at some rural spots for a while, just so that I could find time to mend a broken heart. But those weeks would turn into months, and soon I would be living the life of a Nomad where I would once again find love, but this time it would be with the most incredible girl that I had ever met. Little did I realise it at the time, but I was about to travel the wilderness countryside of rural England with my new found love, followed closely by various law enforcements that were on the trail of a killer that was my Becky. For six and a half months, Becky and I would make our own world amongst the wildlife and natural freedom of the English prairieland where we became persistent in escaping the clutches of the law until the inevitability game of cat and mouse reached its inevitable end. This is the true story of Allison Rebecca Mitchell; a real life bohemian girl who was a true mermaid of wildest England.

The Laws according to Catholicism.

BookRix


This is the memoirs of an ordinary person, but by one who witnessed the hardships of a life of poverty and other misdemeanours of living in a household that contained eight children. This is a story of a boy who had religion rammed down his throat, only to eventually despise God and Christianity the more it was pushed towards him.

  P.S. Do excuse the grammar; I have written this book myself and wished for it to be told by me, and not have anything added on by other sources.

The Loneliest Hobo

BookRix


   Having made a fruitless search for some friends in the upmost western part of Cornwall I was left with financial difficulty in getting back to Birmingham. I had already been walking about the English countryside since April and it was now October. I was in no real rush to get back home immediately and I fancied a bit of a stroll anyway. This stroll took me over a month to complete, and as the chilly autumn became a very cold winter I realised that living the life of a hobo wasn't as easy as one may think. The only only items on my person that kept me going through the seven weeks or so was a hot water bottle, a single calor gas stove and my radio. But there were times when even those life savers ran out of their respective fuels, and soon depression, hunger and eventual thieving, took priority for my needs. 

  

   This is the story of my 250 mile walk home to Birmingham from St. Ives, Cornwall, in the autumn of 1990.

Incident at the Loch

BookRix


Part one of a two week break in Ayrshire and Cumbria during a warm May in 1991. In this first part I hike from Ayr to Stranraer, sleeping in various wooded locations that are full of natural wildlife and magnificent lochs. Along the way I encounter close calls with the natural inhabitants, not to mention a couple of women who more than catch my eye. I ask the reader to excuse any grammatical hiccups, as I am just trying to tell a story. Thanks.

This time I am in the heart of the Lake District where I revisit some old stamping grounds before deciding on a few days in the small seaside town of Silloth, on the Solway Firth. here I make the choice of staying at a campsite, rather than the usual choice of random camping. This would be my last adventure in the wilds of Britain before I take up the reins again in 2001.

Almost

   When i was diagnosed with cancer in March 2015 i realised that i wasn't the invincible person that I honestly believed that I was. I selfishly believed that i was immune to getting cancer, purely because it isn't an hereditary thing in my family. But when reality finally hit home and I seen the amount of people on my journeys to chemotherapy and the likes I realised that i certainly was not alone with cancer, and so I thought that I would like to share my story of the year and a half of a living hell trying to get cured of this God sent disease.
