Travelsonabike2 England Wednesday 1st-May-2024

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is bicycle touring England on Wednesday, 1st-May-2024. In Brockenhurst, again! My interview went okay this morning and lasted just over an hour. Whether I was any help, I don’t know. But at least I’ve tried to help.

There seem to be loads of midges in camp at the moment. I noticed it last night. They were so annoying that I closed the tent up early before it got dark. I thought it was just in the evening they came out. But it wasn’t. They were around again today.


It might be because of all the wet ground that’s around; who knows? I’ve never noticed it before, but then I’ve never spent so much time down here before.

And speaking of it being wet. There’s a weather warning for heavy rain with a chance of thunderstorms tonight. It could be a long night. I might need to stuff some socks or toilet paper in my ears. Rain makes a lot of noise in a tent, even when it’s not heavy. And it’s already started. But at least I get to try my new tarp out, which I’m very pleased with so far.
