Wish us luck as we wave you goodbye

You’re all enablers, you know that right?

Two starry eyed artists, and infamous dipsomaniacs Shanghai an impressionable punk into doing something that makes no real sense, and not only do you not phone the relevant authorities but actually give us money and put up with us banging on about it.

When faced with the enormity of the task It occurs to us that writing a book will be easy compared to expressing how both surprised and incredibly grateful we are for all of your support and patience. Our own sloppy planning and unrealistic worldview will definitely be somewhat mitigated by the money and help given to us in the run up to this mad thing.

And now its upon us, in exactly one week, with your help, we are actually going. A trip of this import deserves a send off and it will give us the chance to shake your hand and thank you in person, for a couple of people that have a reputation for not taking things very seriously its important you can see our non-smirking faces when we thank you.

We will be at the Station Pub in King’s Heath from about 3pm on Sunday, and will hang round most of the evening, please come and buy us a drink.

Danny, Jon & Midge

(its also a good opportunity to bring any unwanted road food, bottles of cheap spirits or other bits and bobs that you might think are helpful)
