Adventure

What have the Romans ever done for us? Given us the Latin ‘adventurus’; meaning ‘about to happen’, from advenire ‘arrive’. That’s what.

The ‘Adventure’ part of the ‘DragonDrop Adventures’ moniker, was spawned from “Watchcam Adventures”. Now defunct, but once the world’s leading forum on all things watch camera. Now-a-days, the ‘Adventure’ category is the flag bearer for new, unusual, exciting or daring experiences.

Grassington

Grassington

Drawn by the some’uts ‘appening in Grassington rumors (Grassington Festival), we set Fathers Day Outing coordinates for upper Wharfedale in The Yorkshire Dales yesterday. Grassington is one of my favorite places. Even though it gets hammered with tourists with the rest of them, it never seems to sell out, or worse, have that air of ‘us and them’ that so… Read more →

Intense logistics, a run off dog and a me pic

Yesterday was funny. I “wrote” my daily blog (thus ensuring continuity of my DD365 project) using a method I’d has in mind as a back up reserve idea – see, it dawned on me that where I was going, the internet may not be an option.

Had a couple of geocaches plugged into… Read more →

Bathed in golden light and dawn chorus, just me and dog. We even saw a deer. She popped out… Read more →

Adventure box

I’ve discovered that buying a second hand roof box is an incredibly complicated thing to do. I had to learn so much about said items that if there was a degree course, I think I could walk away with First Class Honors. My dissertation would focus on how to extrapolate information curtailing to the dimensions, fittings and fixtures of the… Read more →

Photograph tastic

Photograph tastic

This photo of us being photographed was taken by Henry (who’s up north to take part in a ultra marathon race tomorrow).  The local news paper heard about our recent birth experience and as a result, we’ve been interviewed and photographed – we might be in next Thursday’s Harrogate Advertiser. Other significant happenings today – I got some new glasses… Read more →
